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.

The award, which was initiated jointly by the Düsseldorf entrepreneur Georg Landsberg and the Kunstpalast, is aimed at artists who graduated from the Academy of Art Düsseldorf several years ago.

Curator: Sarah Jonas, Kunstpalast

Exhibition venue: NRW-Forum
