In the exhibition NOISY IMAGES, Belgian artist Antje Van Wichelen investigates the mechanisms of colonial photography. To do this, she conducted research in the Historical Photographic Archive at the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum. Her examination of this material has given rise to installations that overcome the classifying gaze: Van Wichelen translates photographic document into moving image, places the shots in direct relation to the beholders and calls on them to conduct their own research. She thereby enables a wholly new view of the images.
