Dirk Stewen

Dirk Stewen is a German photographer and artist who lives and works in Hamburg and is represented by such renowned galleries as Maureen Paley in London or Tanya Bonakdar in New York.

The conception, design and implementation of his website is our latest collaboration project with him. Previously we conceived and designed his artist book “Schwarzes Brett”.

The website appears playful at first glance. Visitors are confronted with “blank” canvas on which they can place randomly selected works from Dirk's extensive archive by clicking. These constantly changing arrangements then combine, for example, photographs with paper works or installation views, thus providing an insight into the fascinating diversity of Stewen's catalogue.

For logged-in visitors, such as his gallerists, the website, both mobile and in the classic desktop format, provides extended information or even a comprehensive overview of the complete works.

The extensive archive is divided into Dirk Stewen's work areas collages, drawings/watercolors, editions/photos, ensembles (or installations) as well as the so-called Twins: unique pieces that at first glance seem to exist two times.

The artist's book “Schwarzes Brett” was created in close collaboration with the artist and is largely devoted to Stewen's photographic oeuvre.
