The Kunstverein in Hamburg raises six questions about the future of photography, which focus on the relevance of this medium within contemporary visual discourses. To think about the actuality and future of photography means to understand it as a subjunctive, in which within the framework of the exhibition and publication various artistic practices are discussed. Different generations of artists explore the photographic and its manifestations. In six exhibition chapters these processes are shown: the chapters are intended to provide spaces of potentiality to check and reformulate one’s own thoughts about photography.
Curated by Bettina Steinbrügge and Amelie Zadeh.
Exhibition architecture by Studio Miessen.
The exhibition takes place in cooperation with the Landesgalerie Linz.
It is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, the Hamburgische Kulturstiftung, the Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council, the British Council and the Bureau des arts plastiques of the Institut français and the French Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication.
The exhibition is accompanied by a publication.
