Commentary on Today’s Image Economy

Viktoria Binschtok‘s photographic works are physical echoes of the image flows produced by our digitally connected world. Her works become part of the larger net that Binschtok consciously casts over divergent visualities dissecting the vastness of our daily digital image production. The precise layering of her large-scale photo-objects generates visual connections with both subtle and apparent references to current realities—immaterial concepts which thus take on a physical shape in new contexts of meaning, creating feedback loops between online and offline.
The book opens with Three People on the Phone, an early series Binschtok photographed on the streets of Tokyo in 2004, visualizing how the absorbed presence of the people immersed in a dialogue with their devices connects the physical space of the city with the channels of the new, digital world—an interaction that is constantly reiterated in Binschtok’s work.

Moscow-born artist VIKTORIA BINSCHTOK (*1972) studied Photography and Media Arts at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig. Today, she lives and works in Berlin. In addition to institutional solo exhibitions at the Museum Folkwang Essen, C/O Berlin, and Kunstmuseum Bonn, she has participated in numerous international group exhibitions.
