Camera of Wonders offers an unconventional, idiosyncratic examination of the world through photography. It presents an associative montage of over one hundred photographs belonging to the collections of the CIAC A.C. and the Kadist Art Foundation. This exhibition’s point of departure is the classical cabinet of curiosities, a product of sixteenth-century Europe that displayed a wide range of often-unrelated cultural artifacts and artworks, inviting viewers to consider what kinds of affiliations or connections could be established between them.

Camera of Wonders imagines this structure on the scale of an entire gallery, where the juxtaposition of photographic pieces encourages viewers to discover unexpected parallels between them. The show proposes a configuration of these images within an architectural space in order to influence the ways in which visitors perceive, experience and interpret things. | Jens Hoffmann
