The tenth project for the SEVEN SCREENS, which is to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the public art platform, is dedicated to the human being. Herlinde Koelbl’s central theme is the importance of seeing. Everything begins with a look at the world and a look at one’s self: recognizing, perceiving, seeing, communicating. Her installation „You have taken away my heart, with one look you have taken it“ returns us to the origin of perception and the meaning of light, which provides the basis for the SEVEN  SCREENS. The title of her installation was inspired by Solomon's Song of Songs.
Herlinde Koelbl (*1939 in Lindau) is one of Germany's most prominent photographers and documentary filmmakers. She did not begin her career in photography until she was thirty-seven, and has worked for numerous newspapers and magazines, including Stern, Die Zeit, and the New York Times. Koelbl has presented her work in numerous exhibitions at home and abroad, for example in the United States, South Korea, Japan, Australia, and China. Most recently, she had extensive solo exhibitions at the Villa Stuck in Munich (2008), the Kunsthal Rotterdam, the Martin-Gropius Bau in Berlin (2009), the Stadtmuseum Graz (2010), and the Stadtmuseum in Munich (2011). She has received numerous awards, including the Leica Medal of Excellence (1987), the Epica Award and Kodak Pro Prize (1992), the Golden Camera (2000), Dr. Erich Salomon Prize 2001, the Federal Cross of Merit (2009), and the Lindau Cultural Award (2010).
