Curatorial Statement

“The question is not what you look at but what you see.” (Henry David Thoreau)

The focus of my scientific and curatorial work is on the communication of photography as an independent artistic form of expression within the context of the history of art since the beginning of the 20th century. Photography as a visual medium has not isolated itself but instead developed a dynamic interplay with all other visual art forms, as well as with music and literature. I am particularly interested in artistic positions that develop an autonomous visual language out of the media-immanent opportunities provided by photography, and participate in the aesthetic discourse of both Modernism and contemporary art by drawing on new aspects of content and style.
