Boris Mikhailov

Mrz 20, 2012


Since he first began working with photography in the mid 1960s, Boris Mikhailov (*1938 in Kharkov/Ukraine) has produced a wide, impressively complex and multifaceted oeuvre. Over the years he has exhausted the medium’s full range of possibilities with great virtuosity and drawn a merciless yet ironically humorous picture of his direct surroundings. His continuing investigations into photographic techniques, as well as his work with a wide range of cameras and stylistic means, and frequent alternation between conceptual works and a documentary approach make him into one of contemporary art’s most interesting proponents.

The exhibition Time is out of joint. Photography 1966 – 2011 is conceived as a show of his oeuvre and brings together a selection of works that encompass the experimental images of his earlier years as well as works produced recently in Berlin.
