For more than 20 years, German photographer and filmmaker Armin Linke (born 1966) has been photographing the effects of globalization, the wholesale transformation of infrastructure and the networking of the post-industrial society via digital information and communication technologies.
His photographs show that the modern world is a massive profusion of data, where the material infrastructures—consisting of computer centers, data highways and server rooms—are largely invisible.
For The Appearance of That Which Cannot Be Seen, Linke invited scientists, philosophers and theoreticians to examine his picture archive. Ariella Azoulay, Bruno Latour, Peter Weibel, Mark Wigley, and Jan Zalasiewicz made a selection of images and in the process opened up Linke’s photos to a variety of different readings.

Since 2009, photographer Armin Linke and architect Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss have been documenting ex-Yugoslav Socialist architecture—buildings that were either left vacant or only recently repurposed when the Socialist Federation of Yugoslavia was dismantled in the early 1990s. Socialist Architecture commemorates these structures in present-day Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, and Serbia.

In 2006, Italian photographer Armin Linke was given a commission by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, and proposed a photographic mapping of all the institutions now housed in various historical buildings in Rome. The result is a portrait of the Italian State through rarely seen interiors.
