During the course of two years and through multiple stages, outstanding exponents of documentary photography will be asked in this project series to exhibit on a whole array of issues. The individual exhibitions will be accompanied by a series of catalogues, and from one project to the other a new volume will be created for each. After the project's completion, all single issues will be republished as one book. International authors contribute texts on the individual photographers in order to create an up-to-date discourse on critical documentary practices.
Through the photographic works of Joachim Schmid (born 1955 in Balingen, lives and works in Berlin), Mishka Henner (born 1976 in Brussels, lives and works in Manchester) and Tobias Zielony (born 1973 in Wuppertal, lives and works in Berlin), the exhibition explores exiting documentary strategies in contemporary photography and critically screens the issue of hierarchies within the practice of documentary photography. The exhibition will be complemented by artist's books featuring the three participants as well as video portraits and the exhibition catalogue.
