“A self-described professional looker, Berlin-based artist Joachim Schmid has scoured archives, flea markets, the streets, and internet webcams for the raw materials out of which he creates his wry, sardonic, yet revealing works of found photography. He invites us to re-see photographic history, questioning the nature of authorship and the role of the photographer. This mid-career survey includes Schmid’s 25-year signature series, Bilder von der Straße (Pictures from the Street), as well as new multi-channel digital photo pieces. Exhibition accompanied by a monograph.

Organized by the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York, and The Photographers’ Gallery, London”
