Description: Florence: Centro di Cultura Contemporanea Strozzina, 2009. 26cm., pbk., 168pp. illus., most in color. Exhibition held at Palazzo Strozzi, Firenze. Italian-English text. Publisher's summary: Photography and video art have always been based on the conflict between recording reality and, at the same time, becoming themselves a falsification of that reality, a viewpoint that builds a particular image of the world. Today, with the spreading popularity of easy-to-use digital technology, that ambiguity has if anything increased, pushing the conflict between appearance and reality to its outer edges. The material on display in this exhibition, entitled Manipulating Reality, is the work of photographers and video-artists who have developed the potential of these new techniques or who reject post-production procedures, sharing the common aim of playing both with the medium's possibilities and with the viewer's expectations, thus creating totally original visions of the world. Do artists still care about the concepts of reality and truth? What is true and what is real in our daily lives today? The exhibition will show the work of the following artists: Olivo Barbieri, Sonja Braas, Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin, Gregory Crewdson, Thomas Demand, Elena Dorfman, Christiane Feser, Andreas Gefeller, Andreas Gursky, Beate Gütschow, Osang Gwon, Tatjana Hallbaum, Ilkka Halso, Robin Hewlett & Ben Kinsley, Rosemary Laing, Aernout Mik, Saskia Olde Wolbers, Sarah Pickering, Moira Ricci, Cindy Sherman, Cody Trepte, Paolo Ventura, Melanie Wiora.
