Thank you „Der Greif“ for inviting me!

I appreciated the richness and variety of photographic languages and moving stories!

My experience was shifting between the pleasure of discovery and great ambivalence throughout the process of looking at the photogrpahs and making selections within the provided framework.

It is crucial to my (curatorial) understanding of the photographic and how we work with images today, to be aware of contexts.

When and where was an image taken? Was there a dialogic process between the photographer- their machine – and the person who is being

photographed? The realm of shape, form and texture is seducing, like in any other visual domain. But this means having to completely neglect the context of the pictures. To mix and combine various geographical, political and social contexts within one selection (per day) felt slightly alien at times.
