Armin Linke: The Body of the State


il_corpo_dello_strato

At the end of 2006, Italian photographer Armin Linke was commissioned by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities to realize a reportage. For this commission, the artist proposed a photographic mapping of all the institutions housed in various historical buildings in Rome. His research attempted to carry out both a documentation of and an inquiry into the characteristics of public institutions. The result is a portrait of the Italian State through the understanding

of the architectures in which functions and ceremonies are performed daily. Including excerpts from Giorgio Agamben′s recent book "Il Regno e la Gloria", the publication invites a critical reading of the representation of power, while displaying very rarely seen interiors and details of the government′s settings in an objective style typical of Linke′s images.

Wenn die Welt leise untergeht
Interview: Max Dax und Anne Waak
spex30 09/10


rome

Der italienische Fotograf Armin Linke ist ein Weltreisender auf der Suche nach den Wunden und Narben, die der Mensch seinem Heimatplaneten zufügt. In seinem neusten Bildband «Il corpo dello Stato» (dt.: «Der Körper des Staates») zeigt er die Schauplätze römischer und katholischer Politik und blickt in die Schaltzentralen des Machtapparats.

Gleichzeitig offenbaren Linkes Fotografien mit einer Faszination für das Überdimensionale aber auch eine unheimliche Schönheit. Keine Frage: Linke ist einer der wichtigsten Fotochronisten unserer Zeit.

admont

Phenotypes/Limited Forms enables visitors to make use of Linke′s online archive of photographs. This includes images of locations in Nigeria, China and Cyprus, of the G summit in Genoa, a NASA base in California and of the documenta exhibition. Phenotypes/Limited Forms eschews the usual "Please do not touch" approach of the museum and the authoritative stance adopted by artist and curator when they stipulate that an artwork

is the completed and conclusive form in which it is to be presented. Because the visitor can make their own personal selection from the archive, they become, as it were, a temporary "curator". Linke does not allow visitors to simply react to his work, but encourages these to actively and consciously make their own decisions.

Weil keine eindeutigen und tradierten bildlichen Metaphern zu erkennen sind, entziehen sich die Aufnahmen einer einfachen Kategorisierung durch eine sprachliche Deutung. Der Fotograf sucht explizit nach dem visuellen Wissen, das im kollektiven visuellen Gedächtnis (noch) nicht mit sprachlichen Klischees verbunden ist. Die Ausstellung im Heidelberger Kunstverein gewährt nun zum ersten Mal in dieser Größe Einblick in Linkes Archiv.

Neben den ausgestellten Abzügen bietet sie die Möglichkeit, das Gesamtarchiv in digitaler Version zu durchstöbern. Mit einer neuen Software lassen sich einzelne Archivbilder auswählen und zu einem individuell edierten Buch zusammenstellen, welches auf Bestellung gedruckt und an den jeweiligen "Redakteur" versandt wird.

Armin Linke: Green Line - UN-Porträts
22. Januar bis 10. April 2010, Innsbruck


puffern_linke

Für seine Arbeit über die Green Line auf Zypern greift Linke auf die umfangreiche Sammlung fotografischer Dokumente des UN-Archivs zurück. Anstatt selbst unter schwierigsten Bedingungen weitere Bilder zu produzieren - das Fotografieren der Zone entlang der Green Line ist strengstens verboten - bedient er sich des, zum Großteil von Soldaten der Stabstelle für Kommunikation aufgenommenen Materials aus dem "Inneren des Systems". Das Verschwimmen der Grenze zwischen Fiktion und Realität, das Linke in seinen eigenen Arbeiten immer wieder aufzeigt, stellte er auch bei der Sichtung dieses Materials fest, wo oft unklar ist, ob die Bilder "reale" Situationen abbilden oder Übungen von Ernstfällen, ob sie extra für das Foto arrangiert wurden oder zu reinen Dokumentationszwecken aufgenommen wurden.

Der Idee des Archivs als konzeptionellem Rahmen folgend selektiert und kategorisiert er diese Aufnahmen nach typologischen und dramaturgischen Kriterien und lenkt so den Blick des Betrachters auf Analogien und Details der Landschaft wie auch auf die Art und Intention der Aufnahmen selbst. In sechs, für die Ausstellung im aut zusammengestellten Fotobüchern zeigt er etwa eine endlose Serie von weiß gestrichenen UN-Beobachtungstürmen oder Luftaufnahmen von Kontrollposten, die willkürlich die Landschaft zerschneiden. Durch die Sortierung und Zusammenstellung wandelt sich das ursprünglich rein dokumentarische Archiv in ein schonungsloses Dokument, das ein gleichzeitig poetisches wie verstörendes Bild dieser letzten Mauer Europas entstehen lässt.

The ‘Straubs’, as Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub are often called, are among the most outstanding, and yet widely unknown contemporary filmmakers in the history of cinema. Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet worked together for over 40 years until Danièle Huillet′s death in October 2006. Since the early 1960s their radical approach towards filmmaking allowed them to create almost 30 very diverse films; they treated and transformed literature by Kafka, Pavese and Hölderlin, as well as the paintings of Cézanne, cantatas by Bach and operas by Schönberg.

Installation View, YOU_ser 2.0, ZKM Karlsruhe, 2008
28 Bienal de São Paulo, 2008
(in collaboration with Peter Hanappe)

How can curatorial selection processes be presented as part of an artistic work in museum contexts? How can interactive internet applications be transferred to physical space? Where does it lead when authorship is extended to the visitor? The installation Phenotypes / Limited Forms, was presented from October, 2007 – January, 2009, in the exhibition "YOU_ser: The Century of the Consumer" at the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnolgie (ZKM) Karlsruhe.

Exploring the meaning of the individual image within a picture archive, illustrating the conditions of its production and use. Relocating Armin Linke′s photo archive into the museum space, the installation takes the artist′s studio situation and proposes a serviceable experimental arrangement: the visitor can view a thousand images, select works, group them, present a selection on the wall, print their selection as a unique edition, the title assigned is then projected in the exhibition space.

These actions of individuals become the basis from which later visitors are received. The installation builds on the concept of a virtual book on demand accessible through arminlinke.com. The project is the formed through the cooperation between Armin Linke, Peter Hanappe (Sony Computer Science Laboratory, Paris), Alex Rich (London), Peter Weibel (ZKM), and the programme in exhibition design and curatorial practice at the Hochschule für Gestaltung. The resulting collective process of selection from Linke′s photo archive confirms that Phenotypes / Limited Forms is not a finished object for presentation but rather a space for production.

Armin Linke has a studio in a humdrum part of Milan, but if one wishes to do more than catch a glimpse of this peripatetic photographer, one needs to travel with him.

Linke quietly scrutinises his chosen location,

While he set up his camera, a group of men uniformly dressed in black walked into his view.
