Devised specifically for the spaces of the Teatro dell’architettura Mendrisio, open to the public from April 7th to October 22th 2023, the exhibition ‘WHAT MAD PURSUIT. Aglaia Konrad, Armin Linke, Bas Princen’ is an original project that brings together photographic works by three international artists who work with this medium through different methods and approaches: Aglaia Konrad (Salzburg, 1960) , Armin Linke (Milan, 1966) and Bas Princen (Zeeland, 1975).
By presenting some 50 works created by the authors at different places and times with equally heterogeneous purposes, the exhibition explores the intersections between photography and architecture, represented space and exhibition space. The exhibition questions the documentary function of photography, here understood as a device that simultaneously records and transforms reality, while also contradicting its conception of a two-dimensional image by exploring its materiality, body and presence.
