Back to the Future. The 19th Century in the 21st Century
Spanning a dialogue between contemporary positions and those of the nineteenth century, the exhibition Back to the Future displays what the photographic medium was, what it is, and what it will be in the near future.
Back to the Future juxtaposes the work created by contemporary artists with the work of some of the medium’s nineteenth century pioneers. The exhibition includes work by Anna Atkins (GB), Sylvia Ballhause (DE), Karl Blossfeldt (DE), Bownik (PL), Matthew Brandt (US), Alfred Brothers (GB), Henry Frères (FR), S.W. Burham (US), William England (SCT), Sam Falls (US), Spiros Hadjidjanos (GR), Thomas Hauser (FR), Nicolai Howalt (DK), Adam Jeppesen (DK), Thomas Mailaender (FR), James Nasmyth (SCT), Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs (CH), Johan Österholm (CH), Jaya Pelupessy & Felix van Dam (NL), Warren de la Rue (GB), Lewis M. Rutherford (US), Stephen Thompson (GB), Simon van Til (NL) and several anonymous makers.
