PHOTOGRAPHY TODAY: RESISTANT FACES

Pinakothek der Moderne | Kunst
 ‐ 

Exhibition series on art photography in the digital age

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

guest curator: Jana J. Haeckel
