Description

The works published for the first time in this book go back to the years 1996 to 2000, when Tamara Horáková and Ewald Maurer started intensively exploring the properties of Polaroid TPX radiographic instant film, which lends the project its name. It is an exposure technique originating from the medical field or security sector, which sees through the things and pretends to represent a certain truth of things. In this way, Horáková + Maurer open up a “game” involving methods, representation, perception, and readability that situates the photographic images at the threshold of their representational possibilities. Along this boundary, the relations between photography and renderability become unstable and are subjected to an experimental probing. The artists intervolve the production and reproduction processes so strongly that the photographic images basically arise at the crossroads between the two, as a superimposition, sometimes even a disruption. In this respect, their practice is at once as theoretical and tangible as possible—and with this practice, they have for years now assumed an extraordinarily independent position of thinking and showing the photographic in equal measure.
