Introduction:
Since its invention in the early 19th century, one of the primary focuses of photography has been the objective documentation of the visible world through the reproduction of this in the form of images ‘drawn with light’. Over the decades, a kind of battle arose between the new medium of photography and the time-honoured medium of painting. Today, however, art critics and museum professionals accept and even embrace photography as an artistic medium on equal footing with painting and sculpture.
The exhibition Beyond the Sphere of Reproduction features a juxtaposition of Chinese and German photographers, who of whom question the history and role of photography in many different ways. What do documentation and reproduction actually mean? Does a photograph have to have depict something from the real world, or can it be a pure visual invention? Do you need a camera to create a photo? What constitutes a portrait? Can photography also be abstract? These and other questions are raised by the twelve participating artists.
