Today we are looking at the installation and catalogue work they did for artist collective DIE NEUE OFFENBACHER SCHULE, and used files and images from their archives and computers to create an interesting visual experience.

The exhibition at the Museum Frieder Burda is being curated by Patricia Kamp in close collaboration with JR.

Wish we could say that was us, but then we see works like this from Landau and Weimar, Germany-based photographer Lucas Zimmermann, and we know we were still amateur at that age. All these shots were taken of traffic lights in the fog near Weimar, Germany.
