About The Artist 
Armin Linke was born in Milan, 1966. He is a photographer and filmmaker combining a range of contemporary image processing technologies to blur the border between fiction and reality. Linke indagates the formation – so called Gestaltung – of the natural, technological and urban environment in which we are living. Armin Linke´s oeuvre – photographs and films – function as tools to become aware of the different design strategies.

Through working with his own archive, as well as with other media archives, Linke challenges the conventions of photographic practice, whereby the questions of how photography is installed and displayed become increasingly important. In a collective approach with other artists, as well as with curators, designers, architects, historians, philosophers and scientists, the narratives of his works expand on the level of multiple discourses.
