On curating contemporary Photography – Kuratorengespräch


On curating contemporary Photography – Kuratorengespräch, 30 octobre 2016 19:00, Aff Galerie

Podiumsdiskussion und Kuratorengespräch

Im Zeitalter digitaler sozialer Medien erhält die Fotografie, zwischen Aufnahme, Hochladen, Teilen und Bewerten, beispiellose Aufmerksamkeit. Doch welche Faktoren bestimmen die Entscheidung, etwas wie zu zeigen und mit welchen Motiven lassen sich heute Dinge in Bezug zueinander setzen? Die aff Galerie lädt zu einer Podiumsdiskussion ein, um gemeinsam mit Kuratoren und Fotografiespezialisten über das Kuratieren zeitgenössischer Fotografie als eine Herausforderung zwischen Zeigen und Verbergen nachzudenken.

Moderation Sarah Straßmann (Künstlerin aff Galerie)

This event is part of the exhibition FORMATIONS and the EMOP Berlin – European Month of Photography 2016. http://www.emop-berlin.eu

FORMATIONS combines art photography and curatorial ideas; it investigates and inquires into the boundaries of what it means to put on an exhibition in the digital age. Within a ‘changing exhibition’ format, the pictures engage in a dialogue of unexpected commonalities and differences. The exhibition begins with a curated show of works from current work groups by aff members. Over the course of the show, visitors are invited to become curators themselves. The images are hung in such a way that they can be moved around; each new hanging is then documented online. Beyond this participatory effect, the exhibition also poses some basic questions, for instance: what commonalities and variations can be discovered, whether they’re of a formal, thematic or some other kind? In terms of evaluating images, what function does comparison perform? Who determines the conditions for which things are placed in relation to one another and in what way? This is an exhibition that creates new spaces for association – of both the physical and conceptual kind.

With works by Anna Eckold, Constantin Köster, Charlotte Krauss, Alexandre Kurek, Inga Alice Lauenroth, Marielle Viola Morawitz, Jana Ritchie, Sarah Straßmann, Katrin Streicher, Kathrin Tschirner, Franca Wohlt.
