Die epistemische Maschine

In 2021, Philip Kanwischer is the scholarship holder of the Schwarzweiß Fotolabor. He creates narrative networks using photography, found-footage and text. In his projects he deals with the relation between images and reality, the perception of catastrophes and the thin line between failure and success.
During the residency at the Schwarzweiß Fotolabor Philip Kanwischer explored the story of a notorious inventor and his fraudulent use of the photographic image.

Philip studied photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig. Based upon his personal archive of collected stories.
