Opening: Spot on: Antje Van Wichelen, NOISY IMAGES
Antje Van Wichelen
In the exhibition NOISY IMAGES, Belgian artist Antje Van Wichelen investigates the mechanisms of colonial photography. To do this, she conducted research in the Historical Photographic Archive at the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum. Her examination of this material has given rise to installations that overcome the classifying gaze: Van Wichelen translates photographic document into moving image, places the shots in direct relation to the beholders and calls on them to conduct their own research. She thereby enables a wholly new view of the images.
