In its current exhibition, aff Galerie investigates changing perceptions of space and its representation within contemporary media.
The photographic perspectives of Diana Artus, Sven Gatter, Tamara Lorenz and Sarah Straßmann both depict and inhabit space, forming a network of examples which understand the possibilities of the medium not only as an imaging process, but photography in particular as an experimental and constructive practice.
In the early days of photography, the focus lay on technical and visual possibilities. From the 1960s on artists expanded their relationship to space to include social and conceptual topics. With the recent developments of technical processes such as the virtual reality at the turn of the millennium, there is a tendency within the arts towards an expanded concept of photography, which also includes installation formats.
The exhibition opens up a space into the indefinite and the possibility of imagining things beyond the boundaries of the picture.
