Two bodies of photographic work are presented from the collection of the IKOB, and both of them can be labeled as “classic”: Buildings Planked with Zinc Plates in East Belgium (1978-82) by Irmel Kamp as much as the five black-and-white photographs titled Rhombus by Barbara and Michael Leisgen who both participated in the documenta 6 in 1977. Two different and in each case very concise ways of working with place or topos, which make visible an inhabited space within a clearly defined image space that tends towards the poetic.
