Exhibition series on art photography in the digital age

About the exhibition

The exhibition RESISTANT FACES inquires into the state of the portrait in the digital age and presents a collection of fourteen critical approaches to both visuality and reality from contemporary photography. In a present shaped by social media and public surveillance systems, the image of the human being has become part of a new culture of data-sharing, observation and control. On a total of 400 square meters, the positions presented in the exhibition address a new understanding of autonomy and reveal visionary alternatives to algorithm-based facial recognition technologies.

With: Broomberg & Chanarin, Eli Cortiñas, Antye Guenther, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Esther Hovers, Basim Magdy, Frida Orupabo, Emmanuel Van der Auwera
"Fotografie heute" is organised by the Department of Photography and Media Art under the direction of Franziska Kunze. The series itself was initiated in 2016 by Inka Graeve Ingelmann (1960–2019).

Guest curator: Jana Johanna Haeckel, art historian, curator, and lecturer based in Brussels, Belgium.

The exhibition series is made possible by the generous support of the ALEXANDER TUTSEK-STIFTUNG, Munich.
