Der Greif – A Process
2014 | Exhibition, Performance, Discourse | Neue Galerie im Höhmannhaus | March 18 till May 18
Over a two-months time frame, we transferred the different steps of our artistic work – curation, de- and re-contextualization of submitted works – into real space and made this process accessible to the public through a performative act. Between March and May 2014, »A Process« raised questions concerning photography in the digital age and in the light of the Internet as well as photography’s haptic stimuli and common perception of authorship. The exhibition used the Internet’s participatory structure to connect participants, visitors, and artists across national boundaries – made possible through an online transmission of the entire exhibition. It was accompanied by several events, such as readings and discussions, and comes with a book that features both combinations of images and texts that were part of the exhibition, as well as essays. The exhibition featured a selection of 279 photographs from 279 photographers coming from 33 countries, as well as poems by 4 authors, curated by Andreas Bülhoff.
