Instantdreams Exhibit for the Instantdreams Documentary by Willem Baptist

Instantdreams Gallery, Berlin

We cordially invite you to be part of a unique Instantdreams experience. Stefanie Schneider is showing new and rarely seen works and unveiling the Instantdreams App, as well as her new Virtual 3-D Gallery project.

“There is a ghostly uncertainty about many of the human experiences found in Stefanie Schneider’s subject matter. Some so empty and fragmented, a mirror of what has become of contemporary America. The recording of a phenomenon. A documentary of decay. Capturing the American dream as it slips away.” 
– Banksy

“I never remember the details of a Stefanie Schneider image, just the whole. She treads a third path between reality and dream that connects the two and truly sparks my artistic, visual freedom.”  – Marc Forster

We are proud to announce “The Perfect World Foundation” as a charity and gallery partner for our event. TPWF is a Scandinavian based independent, non-profit organization established in 2010 to raise awareness, funding, and to take action together with animal and nature conservation projects around the world (www.theperfectworldfoundation.org). Stefanie was first involved with the PWF in 2014 at their gala art auction in Sweden with two donated artworks. This year she has donated more art for this meaningful charity auction. 

The complete exhibition will be auctioned on ebay with the earliest ending date September 1: Please visit www.ebay.de/usr/polaroids69


WILLEM ON WORKING WITH STEFANIE
“Stefanie’s lifelong relationship with instant film is inspiring, her work impressive and fully embodies my vision of this medium and the way I want to portray it in my film... Me choosing the title Instant Dreams is no accident. That’s why I decided that Stefanie will be the artist to be featured in the film and I think that it should be done in a way that not only puts a spotlight onto her work, but adds to the mystique. That, what is in some form illusive, mysterious and magical only makes us crave for more. So in filming how Stefanie creates her work, I will try to capture the elements of her work in the visuals of my film; the day-dream-like quality, power of femininity, subtle eroticism and whole eccentric vibe of the time-less surroundings. Stefanie is a great artist; and I want to portray that greatness in a poetic larger than life fashion.”

September 1st, 2pm sharp “Doc” Dr. Florian Kaps, co-founder of “The Impossible Project”, will speak about Stefanie’s voyage through Polaroid.“It was Stefanie Schneider, who inspired me to start the company THE IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT after seeing her work, which seems to achieve the possible from the impossible, creating the finest of art out of the most basic of mediums and materials. Indeed, after that one day, I was so impressed with her photography that I realized Polaroid film could not be allowed to disappear. Being at the precise moment in time where the world was about to lose Polaroid, I seized the moment and have put all my efforts and passion into saving Polaroid film. For that, I thank Stefanie Schneider almost exclusively, who played a bigger role than anyone in saving this American symbol of photography.”   –Florian Kaps


Stefanie Schneider’s Instantdreams APP - The most analog digital photo APP experience ever!
Mark Engel, the programmer Stefanie partnered with to develop this project, will demonstrate it’s abilities in replicating Stefanie’s artistic style. With this App you’ll be able to take photos just like her expired Polaroid shots.

The Instantdreams Virtual 3-D Gallery – ARTist unlimited
- Another project to be presented is the Instantdreams Virtual 3-D Gallery. In this presentation the Virtual 3-D gallery shows a replica of the show hanging but in the future we’ll show artistic visions which would never be seen due to financial restrictions. This project is being developed with architects from the Syrian Arkium Design Studio in Berlin.
