"Man soll sehen, dass hier gelebt wird." : Die Inszenierung von Privatheit – in literarischen Interieurs des 19. Jahrhundert und der zeitgenössischen Interior-Fotografie

  • Since the 19th century, the intérieur has been the bourgeois space of self-reflection, an archive of objects that bear traces, a material utopia where the presence of objects produces a loss of time and space. Working for an international interior magazine, I came across several strategies that photographers use to bring an interior to life, to stage a feeling of a private sphere. These strategies are identical with the ones that have been applied in 19th century literature: It’s the same concern with objects, the discovery of the narrative power of details and traces, a search for „truth“ on the surface of things. My article leads through some fictional intérieurs, a photo shooting on the Maldives and a small hotel in L. A., where a designer brought all the ideas together to create a space that narrate of its own accord.
