Sightseeing is an exhibition and publication of postcards that explores the representation of place in contemporary German and New Zealand photography. Some are colour, some are an austere black and white, but the effect of these 90 images en masse is an impressive montage of a very peculiar kind of travel. The exhibition depicts armchair travel, a second-hand experience where the postcards are a stand-in for real encounter. Sightseeing suggests an expanded role for the travelling artist, beyond that of author to roles as archivist, activist, researcher, detective, auteur.

Participating artists: Elger Esser, Haruhiko Sameshima, Sarah Schönfeld and Shmuel Hoffman, Jeremy Diggle, Anne Noble, Ann Shelton, Wayne Barrar, Grit Schwerdtfeger, Eva Leitolf, Doris Frohnapfel, John Di Stefano, Frank Breuer, Karin Apollonia-Müller, Fiona Amundsen and Mark Adams.

Sightseeing is curated by Hanna Scott
