‘Escaping_Photography_’ presents a selection of artistic positions by photographers and “non-photographers”, each with a unique and experimental relationship to the medium of photography.
The question that visual artists (have to) grapple with in the age of instant reproduction is the process of reapplying and reinventing the respective media in which they work.
‘Escaping_Photography_’ refers to the process of artists turning away from the medium of the classic photographic image. The spectrum of works shows that this step can go in different directions, from collage and painting techniques to exploring the technical limits of photography to using new ways to produce a unique image using traditional techniques.
