In the context of the ZiF Workshop Fatherhood in Late Modernity. Cultural Images, Social Practices, Structural Frames
The ZiF presented the work of the painter Katja Sandler-Wedekind. Vernissage of the exhibition called 'family pieces' was on March 25, 2007 at 11:30am and finissage on April 20, 2007 on 6:30pm. 'Family pieces' accompanied a conference on 'Fatherhood in late modernity', organized at the ZiF from April 17 - 21, 2007 by Prof. Mechtild Oechsle and Prof. Ursula Müller.
Katja Sandler-Wedekind, who studied painting portraits in London and is now working free-lance in France, pictures family situations by means of figurative oil paintings, dealing with the subject of emotional interaction within family structures. These interpretations lead the viewer into a world of family stories - either lived or not lived.
