ACHIM MOHNÉ & VICTORIA PIDUST | Kunstmuseum Bonn
The group exhibition 'EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED | CURRENT CONCEPTS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY' tests and stretches current photography to its extreme limits and sees itself further as a laboratory, field of experimentation and discourse space for photographers and the public. In addition to the usual photographic tools, the artists in the exhibition work with new, photography-based tools such as photogrammetry, 3-D scanning, 3-D printing, augmented reality, computer-generated imagery (CGI) and machine learning, and in this way explore uncharted territory. In addition to contributions by Achim Mohné and Victoria Pidust, anz & Bowinkel, darktaxa-project, Tim Berresheim, Beate Gütschow, Philipp Goldbach, Spiros Hadjidjanos, Fabian Hesse & Mitra Wakil, Susan Morris,Michael Reisch, Anna Ridler, and many more are represented.
