BERLIN -- The Deutsche Guggenheim exhibits Miwa Yanagi's series My Grandmothers -- pictures of people who have been made to look older by means of computer editing as well as by make-up, and who give a scenic portrayal of their life’s dream. It is fascinating to read the various statements alongside these photographs. They are passionate pleas, visions of a future world in fifty or sixty years, for Yanagi inquired of young people about their own, utterly personal images of a fulfilled life in old age. Friends, acquaintances or actresses located through the Internet, along with the artist herself, appear in these portraits.
