Anna Artaker’s conceptual practice is focused on questions of “historicizing”, more precisely around the excluded and unsaid in history. The material of her analyses is mostly (historical) photography –often considered a superior means of chronicling reality –as she is concerned with the way in which representation, images and reality relate to one another. Artaker investigates photographic images as well as other forms of presentation and classification, through which they become part of a certain historiography.
