Michael Wesely - The Invention of the Invisible

The Invention of the Invisible


Michael Wesely’s publication shows three important parts of his work, commented and interpreted by Eugen Blume, curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, and Mark Gisbourne, free-lance curator in London and Berlin. Both of his main aspects in his work are discussed: the narrative potential of long time exposure in the series “Strand “ (1996), “Potsdamer Platz” (1997-2001) and lately the collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2001-2004). His approach with his self-constructed “Split-Camera” with which he made several groups of works since 1995 like “Palazzi die Roma” (1995) and “East Germany” (2002-2004) also suggests the connection between the titles and the essays about the so called photographic reality: the invention of the invisible.
