Today’s images are, in most cases, electronic data. According to their tags
, they can be arranged and put into new orders within no time. In his installation, Goethe V&A Photography Resident Helmut Völter
uses the elegant wooden cabinets of the Museum Lunch Room, which were built in the 1950s to house parts of the V&A’s textiles archive, to playfully revive an era when images were physical objects that had to be filed according to strict categories. Each cabinet displays a category, whereby the photographs and images from the V&A’s collection selected by Völter crisscross genres, styles and time periods.
