Carmen Reichman’s work challenges prevailing notions of how we see the world around us and how we tell stories. She is interested in what it means to interpret and relay information in a documentary context and what happens to its truth value in the process. As a researcher, she is interested in how narratives are shaped, the origins of what we accept as ‘facts’ and the role they play in constructing our shared reality. As a photographer she seeks to challenge her own way of seeing, inviting others to do the same.

Zheng Fang’s work is about indifference to history. The photographer shot a place in Western China called Oil Town. Now, it’s just ruins.
