Ann-Kathrin Müller studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart. With an objective look and a narrative sense, the artist designs her black-and-white photographs recorded with an analogue camera. In them, the artist draws a tension from New Objectivity and documentary photography of the early 20th century to cinematic pictorial strategies in contemporary art. The motifs of the Vantage Point and Tamerlan series were created in the rooms of the legendary Weisenhof estate in Stuttgart, an iconic architectural ensemble of early 20th century architecture, and thus combine modernist views of architecture, photography, product design and fashion. Photographically, Vantage Point is a high-level, perspective point of view and is also known as the title of an action film by Pete Travis of 2008. Tamerlan is a fictional character that goes back to a historical figure of the 14th century, the Mongol commander Timur the Lame. His helmet becomes a nap cap for Ann-Kathrin Müller’s protagonist, but her stance reflects the eyes of the conqueror, who surveys his field of operation from a distance.
