The exhibition consists of a set of new photographic, moving image and performative works that collectively explore tensions between discipline and chance, precision and chaos, empathy and the involuntary pleasure of watching the pain of others.
Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin are fascinated by power, its tools and mechanisms. Their artistic practice frequently leads them to directly engage with existing power relations within the production and use of images.
The artists are questioning not only the task of the photographer, but also the medium itself and its role as a political instrument. The camera is never neutral and innocent; rather, its physical and material characteristics often reveal its more underlying ideological functions.
