Ann-Christin Bertrand is curator for C/O Berlin and heads the C/O Berlin Talents program, an annual internationally advertised competition for young contemporary photography and art criticism, and has organized several shows including “Larry Clark”, “Rafal Milach, 7 Rooms”, “Edward Burtynsky, Oil”, as well as “Christer Strömholm, Post Scriptum”. In addition, she organizes the “C/O Berlin Book Days” and is currently curating the series of public programs “In Transition: Thinking about photography”. She worked in Paris and Vienna as a curator, art critic and project manager. She is part of C/O Berlin since 2010.


The conversation with Ann-Christin was super nice. She gave me so many ideas how to work further. The conclusion was, to experiment more with size of the photos and the book, with the quality of paper and prints, with space and silence and with the dance between old and new pictures. She encouraged me to keep the poetic approach and too not be to literal in what I wanna say. I left very enthusiastic and motivated to work more on that project.
