During the KPMG-Kunstabend South-African photographer Jodi Bieber talks to co-curator Vivien Trommer about her photographic series “Real Beauty” and the power of feminine beauty and body ideals.

The internationally renowned photographer Jodi Bieber (*1966 in Johannesburg) engages with current political, societal, and economic circumstances. In an artist talk with co-curator Vivien Trommer, she talks about her artistic approach, her passion for photography, and the importance of South Africa for her work. Bieber’s photo series “Real Beauty” (2008–2009) is at the center of the conversation, in which she deals with questions about female body politics and media pressure. Three works from the series are currently presented in the K21 exhibition “Shifting Dialogues. Photography from The Walther Collection.”

Jodi Bieber’s (*1966 in Johannesburg, South Africa) professional career began covering the 1994 Democratic Elections in South Africa for The Star Newspaper after attending three short courses at The Market Photo Workshop in Johannesburg. Bieber’s passion and concerns are for the country of her birth, South Africa. Her practice is engaged with the political, societal, and economic circumstances of our times. Central themes explored deal with contemporary issues related to Gender, Politics, and Identity often contradicting the mainstream media narrative. Her photographic projects are exhibited locally and internationally in museums, galleries, festivals, and institutions. She has won numerous international awards, including the Premier Award at World Press Photo in 2010.
