Der Greif – A Process 2.0

2016 | Exhibition, Performance, Discourse | Krakow Photomonth | May 12 till 15


We have been invited by Lars Willumeit, curator of the Krakow Photomonth 2016 Main Program — »Crisis? What Crisis?!« — to perform A Process 2.0 during the opening weekend at the festival centre. A Process 2.0 questions photography in its digital form as a distinct medium, its handling with the use of the Internet as well as photography’s haptic stimuli and common perception of authorship. A Process 2.0 is using the World Wide Web’s participatory structure to connect participants, visitors and editors across national boundaries—made possible due to an online transmission of the performative exhibition. A Process 2.0 is the continuation of A Process – Ein Prozess, first performed over the course of two months at Neue Galerie im Höhmannhaus, Augsburg, in 2014. The basis for A Process 2.0 is an open call. These submissions are curated by DER GREIF for the performance as well as by Lars Willumeit in a »Guest-Room« in April. This once more enhances the discussion about de- and recontextualization of single photographic images – both on- and offline.
