What is your relationship to the medium photography?
There are three things that instantly come to mind: The medium of photography allows for an almost infinite number of techniques and combinations of its different parameters.

How do you use photography in your work?
As medium photography empowered me to visualize and spread a different narrative on the identity of the migrant and the emergency of it stemmed from my background of East European woman living in the Netherlands.

See work by Conrad Müller at Setareh X in Düsseldorf.
Jan 10 – Feb 2, 2020
Opening , Jan 9, 2020, 7 PM
Hohe Straße 53, Düsseldorf
The conceptual working artist Conrad Müller (b. 1983) is examining the conditions, possibilities and effects of photography as a visual medium.

Conrad Müller’s work asserts itself as a contemporary and future-oriented position that comments on and reflects the history of photography.
