»Visual Realities – The Computation of Photography«

Kathrin Ganser, Carola Lampe, Maxime Matthys, Michael Reisch, David Young

Curatorial team of the AFF Galerie: Julia Brigasky, Maidje Meergans, Matthias Walendy

With the use of artificial intelligence in photography, the definition and boundaries of the medium are increasingly being renegotiated. With »Visual Realities – The Computation of Photography«, AFF Galerie explores this trend as an important influence on photography in the age of digitalization. The exhibition presents positions that explore the possibilities of artificial intelligence in very different ways and in which the classical photographic gesture is also tested away from the camera. The five artists Kathrin Ganser, Carola Lampe, Maxime Matthys, Michael Reisch and David Young create their own visual language in the visual realities they create, moving through analog and digital spaces in the field of tension between reality, fiction, control and chance.

In “Digitale Ruinen (digital ruins)” Kathrin Ganser deals with our habits of seeing, which have been collectivized by globalization, by questioning the trust in the accuracy of what can be seen on Google Earth. In “Tell Me What to See”, Carola Lampe explores the juxtaposition of reality and fiction and the tension between the human and the mechanical. Maxime Matthys‘ work “2091: The Ministry of Privacy” explores the impact of AI-based technology on everyday life in China, with the aim of making the invisible visible. Michael Reisch’s “iPhone-series: Roland Barthes_AI” deals with the delegation of pictorial decisions to artificial intelligence and algorithms. Whether, on the other hand, aesthetic experiences can bring about a new beginning for our thinking about AI is what David Young wants to find out in his work “Learning Nature”.
