Daniel Wagener’s photography involves graphic design, staging and urbanism. He focuses on objects and urban landscapes that are both familiar and transgressive to him. He documents traces accidentally left behind by people, and the absurd normality everyday life staging. In their saturated primary colors, Wagener’s photographs portray commonplace scenes that propose new approaches to reality.
Daniel Wagener has exhibited work at Cercle Cité, Luxembourg; Brussels Gallery Weekend, Belgium; and Les Rencontres d’Arles, France, among others.danielwagener.org

İnci Furni contemplates the constructed spaces of social life and researches the possibilities of new and as-yet-undefined fields of individual existence outside of these. Furni’s inner world and everyday life fill the background of these research processes. Dreams, imaginations and content are brought into the works through inward processes of exploration without designating an individual quest or inner journey.
İnci Furni has exhibited work at Arter, Istanbul; Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna; and the 2009 Istanbul Biennial, among others.incifurni.com.tr

Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz
Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz produce installations that choreograph the tension between visibility and opacity. Their films capture performances in front of the camera, often upsetting normative historical narratives and conventions of spectatorship, as figures and actions across time are staged, layered and re-imagined. Their performers are choreographers, artists and musicians, with whom they are having a long-term conversation about the conditions of performance, the violent history of visibility, the pathologization of bodies, as well as companionship, glamour and resistance.
