the so-called death of photography main1

Ausstellung: 06.02.2016 – 21.02.2016 – Do-So 15-19 Uhr

Irgendwie haben sie sich getroffen, gesprochen und sich entschlossen, eine Ausstellung zu machen. Mit ihrer Erfahrung und Ausbildung in traditioneller Fotografie (wie macht man es/wie denkt es sich/wie schreibt man darüber) , wurden ihnen klar, dass sie in dieser Verbindung auf etwas vollkommen [wirklich?] Anderes aus sind. Was kann das sein? Hoffentlich kann die Ausstellung das ein Stück weit erklären – denn Post-Fotografie kann vieles bedeuten: kein Fotograf zu sein, in einer Fotografie zu leben, seine Kamera zu verkaufen, screenshots zu machen, Fotos zu löschen oder nutzlose Aufnahmen für Meisterwerke zu halten, überall Fotografie oder auch Fotografie in anderen zu sehen. Was geschieht, wenn niemand ein Foto anschaut? Wo war die Fotografie, bevor sie entstand, und wo wird sie nach ihrem Tode sein? Die drei polnischen Post-Fotografen haben Fragen über Fragen!

 

Somehow they met, talked and decided to make an exhibition. Having experiences and education in traditional (making/thinking about/writing on) photography, they understood that together they’re onto something completely [really?] different. What is it? Hopefully the exhibition will partly explain as post-photography could mean many things: not being a photographer, living inside a photograph, selling your camera, taking screenshots, deleting photos or taking the useless shots as masterpieces, seeing photography everywhere and maybe seeing photography in others. What happens when nobody looks at a photograph? Where was photography before it was established and where is it when it is dead? The three polish post-photographers are screaming with question marks!


 

Karol Komorowski
Born in 1994, polish fine art artist and filmmaker based in London. He started learning film and photography in his early teenage years from his tutor, cinematographer Krzysztof Tusiewicz P.S.C. At that time he was already producing his first short films. Due to one of them, a realistic depiction of his school environment – “The Portrait” – he was expelled from high school. As a fine art artist he is represented by Lookout Gallery in Warsaw where he opened his first solo show at the age of 18. He exhibits internationally and gives lectures at universities and public galleries. In 2015 his first academic book was published by The University of Silesia Press and the leading polish art magazine “SZUM” listed him amongst 24 most influencial polish artists of his generation.
