Armin Linke is a photographer and filmmaker whose work analyzes the formation, the “Gestaltung” of our natural, technological, and urban environment, perceived as a diverse space of continuous interaction. His photographs and films function as tools to heighten awareness of different design strategies. Through working with his own archive as well as other media archives, Linke challenges the conventions of photographic practice, whereby the questions of how photography is installed and displayed become increasingly important. Through a
collective approach with artists, designers, architects, historians, and curators, narratives are procured on the level of multiple discourses. Linke was Research Affiliate at MIT Visual Arts Program Cambridge, Guest Professor at the IUAV Arts and Design University in Venice, and Professor of Photography at the Karlsruhe University for Arts and Design.
