For many years, the artist has been investigating the possibilities presented by the photographic dispositif, with different visual regimes, or shadow and mirror formations, playing an essential role in the construction of (not only female) identity. In her photographic, textual, and haptic works, Hahnenkamp leads us through various reductions of the rendered material, thematizing not […]

Preceding the actual artistic work is an elaborate conceptual and research-oriented practice that is an essential part of the work ultimately on show. Thus, the artists presented in Camera Austria […]
