The catalog accompanying the first part of a diptych exhibition in S.M.A.K., Ghent, spread over two years, curated by Martin Germann with Tanja Boon and Steven Humblet. The exhibition comprises new and existing work by artists and photographers, including among others Mohamed Bourouissa, Moyra Davey, Roni Horn, Aglaia Konrad, Jochen Lempert, Zanele Muholi, Malick Sidibé, Dayanita Singh, and Wolfgang Tillmans. The selection, ranging from the 1960s to the present, demonstrates a lively interest in the power of the still image as a means of examining the world. It concentrates on indefinable images with an open view, whose multi-layering requires slow reading. With an introduction by Martin Germann and Philippe Van Cauteren, and an essay by Steven Humblet in Dutch and English.
