Die epistemische Maschine
October 22 - 30, 2021
For the second time Nails projectroom is kindly hosting the exhibition of Schwarzweiß Fotolabor's scholarship.
This year’s scholarship holder is Philip Kanwischer. The Leipzig based artist has worked in the dark room during the summer 2021, where he produced prints for his upcoming exhibition.
In his artistic practice Kanwischer combines photographic images and texts into complex narrative structures. Inspired by the surrounding of Schwarzweiß Fotolabor's facilities, he puts the doubtful reliability of the photographic medium in the center of his current project “Die epistemische Maschine” (The epistemic machine).
Within the exhibition black and white photographs from his archive are combined with a text collection in form of a riso-printed booklet. Austere technical descriptions, the investigation of an historic fraud as well as an innovation of todays professional sport are addressed.
