The images in Armin Linke’s solo exhibition at the Heidelberger Kunstverein stem from such widespread places like Algeria, South Korea, Brazil, Uzbekistan, Italy, Mexico and Switzerland. In the main space of the Kunstverein the exhibition presents select images from the astounding photographic archive, that includes more than 100.000 images. From 1999 and onwards the archive has documented the globalized world with images from Pjöngjang to Genova, all composed in the same unagitated but precise and understated manner.
Alongside the framed prints a digital version of the entire archive, which is designed by Alex Rich and Peter Hanappe will be on display. With a recently completed software the viewer can select images for an individual print-on-demand book. Armin Linke was born in Milano, lives in Berlin, teaches in Karlsruhe and exhibits worldwide.
