“History is equally a question of knowledge and narration, and very much a question of the position from which it is told,” writes Anselm Franke in his essay on the works of Ines Schaber.

An invented mountain range in Africa and a falsified skull found in Great Britain play a pivotal role here. Two seemingly unrelated circumstances that nonetheless share a common history: describing and […]

Stefanie Seufert: Wood Survives in the Form of Postholes

So, for example, various arrangements as if shot directly from above with a repro camera of flat, transparently translucent, potato-slice-like ovals—pastel-light-hued, seemingly completely disembodied, almost a bit like watercolour-like shadows of something, floating before a nearly neutral white. But shadows of what? It almost reminds me of … ? Exactly, the title then indeed says […]

134 | 2016

The artists introduced here by our guest editor Maren Lübbke-Tidow are connected by the radicality of their thought and action, as well as by the way in which they subvert and overcome visual conventions. The flickering visual appearances of their image worlds refer to specific aesthetic experiences and aesthetic knowledge. Everyday contemporary cultural surface aesthetics […]

Atelier d’Expression (Dakar)

“Friedl Kubelka: Atelier d’Expression (Dakar)” introduces the artist’s most recent work.

the end of the world as we know it ist der Beginn einer Welt, die wir nicht kennen Ähnlich wie das Märchen über Jahrhunderte ein brauchbares Medium der oralen Vermittlung gesellschaftlicher Erfahrung war – für Traumata ebenso wie für das Alltägliche –, wurde es die Reportage im 19.

Since 2003 these two artists, both born 1964 in Graz, have been embarking on photographic forays into the Gries settlement, where they were raised, in the eponymous district of Graz—independently of one another and on a regular basis. “Triester” is a rare long-term project with open documentation that eschews any kind of ascriptions or any […]

Shirana Shahbazi
Group Show

For the exhibition at Camera Austria, Shirana Shahbazi reviewed her archive and brought her works of the past fifteen years into a new constellation—a constellation that appears to elude access at first glance, seemingly characterised by contradictions, leaps, and disruptions. It is for this reason that the exhibition title thrust itself upon us, so to […]

133 | 2016

The idea behind the issue at hand deals, both loosely and inevitably, with two contrary moments in contemporary photography. On the one hand, questions are currently revolving around what photography even still is, how we can glean an image from vision, how we can “act upon” this image, and how it must be almost violently […]

Peripherie und Ungleichzeitigkeit: Pier Paolo Pasolini, Henri Lefebvre und Jacques Tati als Kritiker des fordistischen Alltags

Tati und Pasolini? Der Komiker und der Dramatiker? Leichte Unterhaltung und schwere Geschütze? Wie geht das zusammen? Auf den ersten Blick mag es abwegig erscheinen, einen Vergleich zwischen dem italienischen Schriftsteller und Filmemacher Pasolini, dem französischen Philosophen und Raumtheoretiker Lefebvre sowie dem Regisseur und Satiriker Jacques Tati anzustellen. Beim näheren Hinsehen finden sich zwischen den […]
