Give and Take. Images upon Images

8th Triennial of Photography, 2022 – Currency

»Give and Take. Images upon Images« describes processes of exchange and appropriation of visual material in contemporary photography. More and more images are circulating and migrating across geographical, cultural and social boundaries. One and the same photograph may appear today in myriad contexts, multiplying its impact exponentially. We have thus lost control of all the meanings that may be assigned to an image once we release it into the world. In this “give and take”, artists appropriate images from a variety of fields as they explore the mechanisms behind the production of realities and identities.

From early picture archives, historical film footage and museum collections to classic print media and digital images on social media and in search engines, the artists featured in the exhibition draw on a rich trove of material. In their photographs, films and installations they respond to images that originated in another time or were made for a different purpose. The show examines the following themes: Facts and Fictions, Canon and Process, Appropriation and Re-creation, Exchange and Exclusion, Archive and Algorithm.

The exhibition will be mounted on the upper floor of the Galerie der Gegenwart, whose open architecture will also offer a platform for other shows and events during the Triennial of Photography. The museum will thus become a place of exchange and constant image transfer and a forum for lively discussions on current developments.

Requested artists:
Viktoria Binschtok, Sara Cwynar, Katharina Gaenssler, Anouk Kruithof, Louise Lawler, Max Pinckers, Walid Raad, Volker Renner, Sebastian Riemer, Thomas Ruff, Taryn Simon, Johannes Wohnseifer a.o.

Supported by: Freunde der Kunsthalle e.V.,  Behörde für Kultur und Medien der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg
