Katrin Kamrau engages in the processes of image-making and perception in relation to the medium of photography. She is interested in both the current and historical use of optical images in our Western society. In particular, she is looking into the social interactions, power structures, role models and networks of relations that form around printed images. Her artistic practice, in a sense a visual examination of photography, arises from the encounter between (printed) images derived from cameras and their transformation into the exhibition space.
During her stay at the Frans Masereel Centre Katrin Kamrau focused on the relation between print and publication. She worked on several concepts for publications in relation to her ongoing research at the Lieven Gevaert Archive, the historic archive of Agfa-Gevaert in Mortsel (Belgium) and realized Normal – Robert Olson, an artist edition in form of a swirl, being art work and publication the same time.
