Statement

In the majority of projects, executed in photography, film, print, text or performance, Barbara Visser has been occupied with the uncertain relationship between registration and dramatization, plays with notions of original and copy, and questions the way history and memory are being shaped by both the individual and society.

Dissecting various strategies to influence our collective memory, our biographies and behaviour, the works challenge conventions, readymade interpretations and clichés.

From a solid conceptual basis, many works have a changing appearance which is related to time, place and context. Thus, the projects can be regarded as multilayered stories or threads, rather than symbolic pieces or statements.
