The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Elfie Semotan takes photos. So well that a show of her works is being prepared for the Galerie C/O Berlin. In her archive, she consults with friends and colleagues, while outside, models—painters as well as artists, but also landscapes—wait to have their portrait taken by her. All happens with great nonchalance and concentration. Just like Joerg Burger in his film, who likewise moves light-footedly.
