For more than fifteen years, Arno Gisinger has been developing the multi-disciplinary practice of combining photography with historiography. Influenced by the intellectual movements which originated in Germany during the interwar period, and the contemporary techniques of recording history, Gisinger's projects represent a modern re-interpretation of historiography.
Using archives, documents and testimonials as a 'living memory', Gisinger creates entirely new figures and shapes: his work is not defined in terms of photographic genres – instead, each series is centred around its own relevant core, be it individuals, objects or locations.
Facilitated by four European photographic institutions, "Topoï" collates some of the artist's most important projects – the result of fifteen years of combining photography and historiography into one new discipline.
