ANT!FOTO starts where photography ends – or rather begins. At the invitation of the municipal art space in Düsseldorf, ANT!FOTO was developed and organized by the artists Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber. The aim of ANT!FOTO is to show the different facets of the medium of photography. They present ten international photographers with many different approaches and understanding of the medium.

About the Artist
Katja Stuke (b. 1968) is a German artist. She lives and works in Düsseldorf. Together with Oliver Sieber she covers an extensive range of personas: photographers and artists, curators and exhibition organisers, designers and art book editors. Yet as they move through their photographic cosmos, it is not always so easy to determine where one identity ends and the other begins. Regardless, in their works and activities as artists and art facilitators they have long since become moderators of a very specific photographic culture.

Oliver Sieber studied photography in Bielefeld and Düssseldorf. Since 1999 he has worked with Katja Stuke on Frau Böhm, a photo project in the form of a magazine, see Sieber’s work usually takes the form of series and he is fascinated by the subject of identity and the phenomenon of young people and their subcultures. This led to the series SkinsModsTeds, B-Boyz B-Girlz, 11Girlfriends and Boy meets Girl. In 2006 he spent time in Japan for an artist in residence program, where he made the series J_Subs as well as character thieves, for which he photographed young people dressed up as their favorite manga characters. Over the past few years exhibitions of his work have been held at, among others, the Photographers Gallery London, the Photographische Sammlung SK/Stiftung Kultur in Cologne, the National Museum of Photography in Copenhagen, the Photo Espana Festival in Madrid, your Gallery in Krakow and Fotomuseum Winterthur. Sieber has published a number of books. The latest two are based on his work character thieves an imaginary club.
