Photography has long since ceased being reduced to classical two-dimensional formats whose presentation solely is played out in the form of artwork mounted on walls. Preceding the actual artistic work is an elaborate conceptual and research-oriented practice that is an essential part of the work ultimately on show.

Alice Maude-Roxby, Stefanie Seibold: Censored Realities / Changing New York. The complete reclaimed texts of art critic and political journalist Elizabeth McCausland intended for photographer Berenice Abbott’s 1930s seminal book Changing New York

Within research of female/sapphic collaborations of modernity, a perpetual process of “erasure” or the “writing-out of art history” of female collaborators is exposed. One such example is evident through analysis of the 1939 Dutton publication Changing New York by photographer Berenice Abbott and writer Elizabeth McCausland. Little or nothing is known of the fact that […]

Notes on Archives

Since 2004 Ines Schaber has been pursuing in her work the idea of a “working archive.” In a series of case studies, texts, and artistic projects, she explores aspects of the archive, relating, however, not to the collecting and classifying of things, but rather to opportunities to probe, from the constellation of the respective archive, […]

Repeatedly reappropriated and reapplied, they appear to establish all kinds of things, especially when the truth is no longer the truth, as Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York and present attorney of the American president, recently asserted. Does this give them […]
