In analogue photography, the contact process enables the creation of both reproductions and new productions. This workshop is devoted to the photogram as technique, whereby light-sensitive materials are covered by more or less transparent objects and then subsequently exposed. The covered areas remain white during the developing process, while the surfaces exposed to light turn black.
This summer, the KM– Lab, which is the innovative hands-on workstation at the Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, is placing emphasis on practical-creative activity: various techniques can be tried out together with young protagonists from the regional art scene. People of all ages are invited to simply stop by and participate! No sign-up is necessary.
Friedrich Becke (*1987 Leoben, lives in Graz) deals in his artwork primarily with a combination of photography and object art. Quick snapshots are juxtaposed with slow processing methods. The works are usually created using analogue methods or are kept in black and white. With a focus on contrasts, the coarse aesthetics is meant to be positioned contrary to a prevailing sense of ultimate beauty.
