Early Photographic work from Billingham's series 'Rays a Laugh' was included in 'Privacy', Schirn, Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Germany, (1st Nov 2012 - 3rd Feb 2013). The exhibition explored the fragile boundaries between the public and the private spheres and investigated a variety of contemporary approaches to the “publicness of the intimate” through photographs, polaroids, cell-phone photos, objects, installations and films - revealing domestic scenes and personal secrets. “Private—a word from the past, (or so it would seem these days). A word of hardly any relevance in an era when everything—from one’s favourite recipe to one’s current relation­ship status—is posted on Facebook. Exhibitionism, self-disclosure, the delight in telling stories, showing off, and voyeurism are the social strategies in today’s world—a world that has long since undergone a structural transformation of the public sphere. Besides Richard Billingham, the participating artists were: Ai Weiwei, Merry Alpern, Michel Auder, Evan Baden, Richard Billingham, Mike Bouchet, Stan Brakhage, Sophie Calle, Tracey Emin, Hans-Peter Feld­mann, Leo Gabin, Nan Goldin, Chris­tian Jankowski, Jenny Michel and Michael Höpfel, Birgit Jürgenssen, Edgar Leciejewski, Leigh Ledare, Chris­tian Marclay, Ryan McGinley, Marilyn Minter, Gabriel de la Mora, Mark Morrisroe, Laurel Naka­date, Peter Piller, Jörg Sasse, Dash Snow, Fiona Tan, Mark Wallinger, Andy Warhol, Michael Wolf, Kōhei Yoshiyuki ands Akram Zaatari There was a fully illustrated catalogue Edited by Martina Wein­hart and Max Hollein with Preface by Max Hollein; intro­duc­tion by Martina Wein­hart; essays by Boris Groys, Chris­tian Heller, Jan Verwoert and Lisa Beißwanger. It included inter­views by Martina Wein­hart with Leigh Ledare, Laura Naka­date and Peter Piller.
