NOISY IMAGES Antje Van Wichelen


Cäcilienstraße 29-33
50667 Köln

In the exhibition NOISY IMAGES, Belgian artist Antje Van Wichelen explores the mechanisms of colonial photography. She researched the mechanisms of colonial photography in the Historical Photo Archive at the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum in Cologne. Her work with this material has resulted in installations that overcome the classifying gaze: Van Wichelen transforms the photographic document into a moving image, places the images in direct relation to the viewer, and invites them to conduct their own research. It thus enables a completely new view of the Images.
