The FOG Platform is dedicated to photography situated at the intersection of the artistic and the documentary. The emphasis is on a multiplicity of themes, working methods and styles. The exhibition shows four positions from this year’s issue 3 of FOG Magazine. In his project Lovely Planet: Poland, Jakob Ganslmeier adopts the typical categories of a travel guide to formulate ironic comments on the structural changes taking place at Europe’s centre. Furrowed, barren landscapes form the backdrop for the series Kowitsch by Robin Hinsch, who took photographs that document the sites of conflict during the recent years of crisis in the Ukraine. For over ten years now, Adelaide Ivánova has been photographing her grandmother Adelaide, who lives in Brazil. The two women share more than just a first name, and their close relationship is reflected in humorous, playful portraits that are also honest. In Grinders, Hannes Wiedemann explores the self-experiments of the American DIY cyborgs, who work toward merging human and machine using the simplest of means.
