Andreas Müller-Pohle : Coincidences. A Select Retrospective
PRAGUE • Prague City Gallery • 22 July - 28 September 2014
|The exhibition presents the work of Berlin-based artist Andreas Müller-Pohle who questions both the ontological and representational essence of photography since the mid-1970s, and reflecting the radical change of the technical images through the 1990s till today. The ever-recurring questions of the codification and meaning of information and their dialectic opposition to entropy and chance shows Müller-Pohle's mutual influence with Czech-born philosopher and media theorist Vilém Flusser.|
