‘Keep Your Eyes Peeled’ is an exhibition project of the aff Gallery. It takes place in the gallery space at regular intervals during special art highlights throughout the year. During this year’s Berlin Gallery Weekend a group exhibition will be on display that shows works by the aff photographers and artists selected from the extended network of the gallery and its members.
Photography today influences our daily lives more than any other medium – to facilitate communication, for recording memories, as documentation and evidence, as a research tool, to make notes, and, of course, as artwork. Images are captured, fill our hard drives, pop up on various screens and implant themselves in our thoughts. The apparatus – the smart phone, the camera, or the wireless transmission – occurs mostly in the background, and we cannot identify their operations within the image production. We are surrounded by a diversity of photos that shape our vision and experience so that the complex everyday life appears partially relieved but also inscrutable.
In this tradition, the aff Gallery continues its exhibition format ‘Keep Your Eyes Peeled’, to respond to developments and tendencies in contemporary photography. In a short exhibition, the communication with and through our images, will be temporarily brought back to a common real place (the gallery).
