The artist Nan Goldin

  • US photographer known for photographing intimate biographical and provocative moments.
  • In her photographs, she also addressed her own heroin addiction – and was criticised for it.
  • Was allowed to curate the Rencontres d'Arles in 2009.

Nancy »Nan« Goldin, born 12.09.1953 in Washington D. C., is an American photographer known for her sensitive, provocative and personal imagery. Goldin uses her work to portray herself and the people surrounding her and to stage various phases of her turbulent life with unsparing directness. Life and death are always very close to one another in her pictures: she captured fateful biographical experiences such as physical abuse or the consequences of AIDS and drug abuse as well as taboo subjects such as nudity and sexuality in an impressive way – often she summarised several years in series.

Goldin thus brought her own low blows, such as her heroin addiction, which she reportedly overcame in 1988, into the centre of society for viewers to a certain extent. She was regularly criticised for the supposed glorification of this addiction. Goldin had to deal with a blow of fate early on: when she was 14 years old, her older sister took her own life. So she moved out of her parents' house shortly afterwards. She was already interested in photography in her teenage years and was even able to achieve a first smaller solo exhibition with some of her amateur pictures. In 1974 she began studying at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and graduated in 1978.

Goldin then moved to New York, where her artistic career was to begin. The period between 1980 and 1986, during which she produced her successful series of works and her most famous work to date, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, is described as her »breakthrough«. The sound image show was last exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2016/17. In 1982, the photographer travelled to West Berlin for the first time at the invitation of Alf Bold, an actor and cinema programme director, and from then on visited the present-day capital annually. In 1984, she was allowed to design the poster motif for the Berlin Film Festival.

She became friends with the band Die Tödliche Doris and photographed them during various performances in Paris and New York, among other places. One of Goldin's greatest achievements was her role as curator at the 2009 Rencontres d'Arles, a world-renowned photography festival. Since 2018, she has also been active as an activist against certain pharmaceutical companies after struggling with post-operative drug addiction in 2014. Goldin has already received various awards – in 2007 she received the Hasselblad Photography Award, in 2011 the Reminders Day Award and in 2019 the Ruth Baumgarte Art Prize. Today she lives and works mainly in New York.

Die Künstlerin Nan Goldin

  • US-amerikanische Fotografin; bekannt für die Ablichtung intimer und provokanter Momente.
  • Thematisierte auf ihren Fotografien auch ihre eigene Heroinsucht – und wurde dafür kritisiert.
  • Durfte 2009 die Rencontres d’Arles kuratieren.

Nancy »Nan« Goldin, geb. 12.09.1953 in Washington D. C., ist eine US-amerikanische Fotografin, die für ihre sensiblen, provokanten und persönlichen Bildinhalte bekannt ist. Goldin nutzt ihre Arbeit, um sich selbst sowie die Menschen in ihrem Umfeld zur porträtieren und verschiedene Abschnitte ihres bewegten Lebens in schonungsloser Direktheit zu inszenieren. Leben und Tod liegen in ihren Bildern stets nah beieinander: Sie hielt schicksalsvolle biografische Erlebnisse wie körperliche Misshandlung oder die Folgen von AIDS-Erkrankungen und Drogenmissbrauch sowie tabubehaftete Themen wie Nacktheit und Sexualität in eindrücklicher Weise fest – oftmals fasste sie mehrere Jahre in Serien zusammen.

Ihre eigenen Tiefschläge, wie etwa ihre Heroinsucht, die sie Angaben zufolge 1988 überwand, rückte Goldin so für die Betrachtenden ein Stück weit ins Zentrum der Gesellschaft. Für die vermeintliche Verherrlichung dieser Sucht wurde sie regelmäßig kritisiert. Goldin hatte schon früh mit einem Schicksalsschlag zu kämpfen: Als sie 14 Jahre alt war, nahm sich ihre ältere Schwester das Leben. So zog sie kurz darauf bereits aus ihrem Elternhaus aus. Sie interessierte sich schon in ihren Teenagerjahren für Fotografie und konnte mit einigen ihrer Amateurbilder sogar eine erste kleinere Einzelausstellung erreichen. 1974 nahm sie ein Studium an der School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston auf und schloss dieses 1978 ab.

Daraufhin zog Goldin nach New York, wo ihre künstlerische Laufbahn beginnen sollte. Als »Durchbruch« wird die Zeit zwischen 1980 und 1986 bezeichnet, in der sie ihre erfolgreiche Werkreihe und ihre bis heute bekannteste Arbeit The Ballad of Sexual Dependency fertigte. Die Tonbildschau wurde zuletzt 2016/17 im Museum of Modern Art in New York ausgestellt. 1982 reiste die Fotografin auf eine Einladung von Alf Bold hin, einem Schauspieler und Kinoprogrammdirektor, zum ersten Mal nach Westberlin und besuchte die heutige Hauptstadt von da an jährlich. 1984 durfte sie das Plakatmotiv für die Berliner Filmfestspiele gestalten. Sie freundete sich ebendort mit der Band Die Tödliche Doris an und fotografierte sie während verschiedener Auftritte u. a. in Paris und New York.

Einer der größten Erfolge Goldins war ihre Rolle als Kuratorin bei den Rencontres d’Arles 2009, einem weltweit renommierten Fotografiefestival. Seit 2018 ist sie auch als Aktivistin gegen bestimmte Pharmakonzerne tätig, nachdem sie 2014 mit einer post-operativen Medikamentensucht zu kämpfen hatte. Goldin durfte bereits verschiedene Preise und Ehrungen entgegennehmen – 2007 erhielt sie den Hasselblad Photography Award, 2011 den Reminders Day Award und 2019 den Kunstpreis Ruth Baumgarte. Heute lebt und arbeitet sie überwiegend in New York.
