Intro

“Double Check” analyzes relations of art, visibility, action and technology in the field of artistic representation, while exploring and re-framing other spaces of production/non-production in photography. The confrontation of artistic views provides the basis for re-shaping the future conception of the political and experimental spaces in between different cultural territories.
“Double Check” confronts different artistic arenas and production sites within the politically and mentally changing
geographies of the global world. While the past decade has focused on various field trips and attempts to explore the art production of the new and old countries, thereby often concentrating on the notion of difference as a pigeonholing marker, the new millennium has brought about the necessity to parallel various modes of artistic reflection, which are interrelated through the unhindered spreading of globalized values on mediatized ground. The rise of the global market of electronically supported media and image (re-)production has led to uniform ways of interaction, which artists reflect by demonstrating their strategies of counter action. In this respect, the medium of photography has regained importance as an artistic tool to oppose the dominance of constructed worlds and their mingling of real and fictional entities.
