Kaune, Sudendorf Gallery for Contemporary Photography was established in the autumn of 2007 in Cologne, Germany. The young gallery focuses on photo- and video art and their relation to reality, and international photography that adapts contemporary and documentary resources. The programme of Kaune, Sudendorf reflects the gallery's attitude towards photography: concentrating on real life, just as it is, not how it could be. Kaune, Sudendorf wishes to focus on the soul and spirit of photography, which has become harder and harder to capture in today's mass-mediated world.
