The exhibition "The Magic of Transfiguration" unites 9 photo artists and a group of students who use the artistic medium of photography in a variety of ways. What all have in common is the unsmooth visibility of the respective, usually analogue, process of creation in the images themselves. This way the viewer is taken into the moment of the image becoming.
The transformation of view, film or print medium and further processing into a picture becomes tangible. Double and long exposures, instant pictures, pinhole camera pictures, rubber prints, collages, overpaintings, print installations in film cassettes: each of these pictorial strategies reveals its very own aura of transformation. The question "What is the nature of photography?" can be asked anew.
