Past cluster | Saturday, 03.10. – Sunday, 29.11.2015


The Formats cluster (SITUATIONS #20 to #23)explores lost and changing visual formats. As the lifespan of data storage formats decreases, the Internet provides unprecedented modes of production and distribution by which media content is constantly copied, transformed and circulated, thus persisting in both old and new formats. What reflections arise from these medial transformations and what implications do they have for a contemporary examination of art and photography?
