Thomas Freiler

An exhibition as an experimental setup in which photography provides information about itself and, reflecting upon itself, also questions itself as a collection and argumentation. Thomas Freiler approaches the medium from the vantage point of its scientific preconditions and its apparatus-based structures on the one hand, and its uses and contexts on the other.
Arrangements and contrasting comparisons of photographs explore the basic parameters of photography and photographic representation in both the analogue and the digital field, but also the conditions and impact of developments and standardisations of photographic technologies on concrete picture worlds. As always, the medium is a key part in the formulation of the message, and Freiler examines these alphabets of photography, the traditional and the new, in contemporary images.
