Jahrhundert ist geprägt von sich ständig beschleunigenden Veränderungsprozessen, die Menschheit befindet sich aktuell in einer gewaltigen Umbruchsituation. Digitalisierung, Klimawandel, Migrationsströme, Bevölkerungsexplosion und Globalisierung verlangen nach neuen Lösungen und Denkansätzen. Unter dem Motto ´´Breaking Point. Searching for Change´´ greift die 7. Triennale der Photographie Hamburg diese Debatte auf. Welche Antworten können Künstler in die Diskussionen einbringen? Welche Aufgaben hat die Fotografie? Die in diesem Buch versammelten Arbeiten sowie die Texte der Autoren und Museumskuratoren haben sich diesen Herausforderungen angenommen und reflektieren das Thema ´´Breaking Point´´ höchst komplex, anregend und ideenreich.

The book´s subtitle is also the contextual focus of the event curated by Krzysztof Candrowicz. The world in the twenty-first century is characterized by constantly accelerating processes of change; mankind is currently undergoing an enormous phase of upheaval. Digitalization, climate change, waves of migration, population explosion, and globalization demand new solutions and ways of thinking. Under the motto ´´Breaking Point: Searching for Change,´´ the seventh Triennale of Photography Hamburg takes up this debate. What answers can artists contribute to the discussion? What are the tasks of photography? The works collected in this book as well as the texts by the authors and museum curators have taken up these challenges and reflect on the subject of the ´´breaking point´´ in a manner that is highly complex, imaginative, and inspiring.

It rocked her when she picked up a strange volume of love spells in the town´s used bookstore...and it zapped her again when she encountered Slade Montgomery, the hot-tempered - and hot-bodied - divorce lawyer who storms into Kinnections demanding proof that playing Cupid won´t destroy his vulnerable sister, Kate´s newest client. The only way to convince this cynic that she´s no fraud, and that love is no mirage, is for Kate to meet his audacious challenge: find him his dream woman. Can Kate keep their relationship strictly business when her electrifying attraction nearly knocked her off her feet? Or has the matchmaker finally met her match? 1. Language: English.

This program is read by the author. A best-selling author and rabbi´s profoundly affecting exploration of the meaning and purpose of the soul, inspired by the famous correspondence between Albert Einstein and a grieving rabbi. ´´A human being is part of the whole, called by us ´Universe´, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness....´´ (Albert Einstein) When Rabbi Naomi Levy came across this poignant letter by Einstein, it shook her to her core. His words perfectly captured what she has come to believe about the human condition: that we are intimately connected and that we are blind to this truth. Levy wondered what had elicited such spiritual wisdom from a man of science. Thus began a three-year search into the mystery of Einstein´s letter and into the mystery of the human soul. What emerges is an inspiring, deeply affecting audiobook for people of all faiths filled with universal truths that will help us reclaim our own souls and glimpse the unity that has been evading us. We all long to see more expansively, to live up to our gifts, to understand why we are here. In Einstein and the Rabbi, Levy leads us on a breathtaking journey full of wisdom, empathy, and humor, challenging us to wake up and heed the voice calling from within - a voice beckoning us to become who we were born be. 1.
