FROM THE BOOK
"Looked at as a whole, the works gathered together here cover one of the richest and most complex periods in the development of photographic art. The collection of Zellweger Luwa AG begins with key works of Conceptual and performance art from the late sixties and early seventies; passes through what came to be called the 'postmodern' arts of appropriation, quotation, and rephotography; and concludes with large-scale photographic tableaux. Each of these moments is, of course, rich and complex in its own right and has been the subject of important exhibitions and critical studies. Through the Looking Brain allows us to consider what is particular about these moments, but more importantly perhaps it allows us to see significant overlaps, dialogues, and what its artistic possibility has been thought to be across the last four decades."

David Campany, excerpted from Traces and Pictures in Through the Looking Brain.
