About the exhibition
The exhibition ‘Power & Paper’ is concentrated around issues of photography, official/documented history, individual relationships with memory and history, concepts of manipulation, authenticity and authorship. The exhibition gives the audience the opportunity to reflect on the artist’s ultimate power over presenting different realities and directing the audience’s attention to how we navigate documented, historical material and public archives.
