Landsberg-Prize 2022: Alex Grein. circuit

Photographic images are part of our everyday lives. Whether in social media, in advertising or art – photographs have the scope to document events, distort truths, create new worlds.

Alex Grein (*1983), winner of the Landsberg Prize 2022, explores the question of how images can persist in the digital age. In doing so, the Düsseldorf-based artist examines different categories of images and establishes a link between the virtual and the material.
