The Found Photo Foundation

Tanja Verlak,  Dear Aby Warburg: What Can Be Done With Images? 2012


The Found Photo Foundation/FPF, under the patronage of paula roush, deals with visuals suitably named ‘orphan photographs’ and explores this very possibility of walking the line between temporal and spatial domains, where the empirical and the surreal grow surprisingly close. The FPF can also be read as an artistic experiment of twisting the document value of an archive beyond its proverbial linearity of causes and consequences.
