Clara Bahlsen studied visual communication at Universität der Künste Berlin. She was then a postgraduate with Ute Mahler at Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie in Berlin. Her work has been exhibited throughout Europe since 2009 and is held in well-known collections including the C/O Berlin Bibliothek, the Oslo National Academy of the Arts Library and MoMA in New York. Since 2009 she has also been publishing individual artist’s books as part of her practice. ‘The focus of my artistic work is photography. My work is based on the cultural-anthropological examination of the German middle-classes. Lifestyles of individuals, the observation of the everyday and normality as well as the trappings and status symbols of mainstream society are the starting points of my art.’

We offer a review of your work in the context of a discussion with suggestions and criticism. We will give you advice and information on how to compile or develop your portfolio. Your current level of education is unimportant for this. Whether you are just starting to develop a portfolio or if you already have a portfolio for which you need criticism or a well-founded exchange.
For your individual appointment with Clara Bahlsen please bring your work in printed form (simple printouts suffice).
