The Data Battlefield
Antwerp, 27 April – 4 June 2017
The Data Battlefield shows how four international lens-based artists engage with the various meanings of the word ‘document’ and create new visual ways through a documentary field marked by the disappearance of its traditional models of representation. Through some of the latest technology, DAVID BIRKIN (UK, 1977), HARUN FAROCKI (DE, 1944-2014), FORENSIC ARCHITECTURE and STEFFI KLENZ (DE, 1979) each open up unique conversations about the contemporary socio-digital conditions of our current photographic and filmic culture in relation to environments of conflict and dispute.
The Braakland Museum Takeover is running for seven months, transforming the top floor of FOMU into an experimental workspace for photography with the diversity of the photographic medium as the prime objective.
