Photos of the Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie

Eva and Franco Mattes, Abuse Standards Violations

Here’re some photos of our works installed at the amazing Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie, in the Raum für Gegenwartskunst, Mannheim. We’re in the exhibition “No Image Is an Island. How does sharing shape our dealing with images? ” curated by Fabian Knierim. The first line of his presentation says it all: “How do we use images today? We share them.”





“Merging with the Network”, an interview about Life Sharing

On the occasion of the recent re-launch of Life Sharing (2000-2003) we did a rather long interview with the amazing Paul Soulellis.





Life Sharing is back

For three years (2001-2003), we openly shared our home computer, making all its contents accessible to the public. Private material, including email, texts, photos, and bank statements, was freely available through our website. Made long before social media’s widespread influence, Life Sharing pointed towards the blurring of the public and private spheres. Originally commissioned by the Walker Art Center and newly restored by Rhizome, it can now be experienced again!
