Lukas Hoffmann >

In his Series 'if there were images attached they will not be displayed' Lukas Hoffmann photographed situations after having applied a number of changes. The interventions were done by means of everyday materials, such as post-it notes or toilet paper and were more or less subtle. The works raise a number of complex questions with regards to content balance, the construction of image and representation and the role of photography as a document of the real.
