Viktoria Binschtok is a conceptual photographer who often blurs the lines between found photography, documentation, restaging, and original compositions. For her series World of Details, Binschtok found Google Street Views of New York City and then traveled to those places to photograph the reality in detail. Her Cluster series also relies on the internet for inspiration. To create these photographs the artist inserts one of her original images into a search engine to find similiar images that the algorithm associates with it. Then she restages and manipulates these found images, exhibiting the results together with the initial pciture in order to call into question authorship and originality.
She has had solo exhibitions at Kunstverein Göttingen, C/O Berlin, KLEMM’S in Berlin, and AMERIKA in Berlin. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as Centre Pompidou-Metz, Museum Folkwang Essen, Museum der Bildenden Künste Leipzig, Bergen Kunsthall, Kunstverein Bregenz, MODEM Centre for Modern and Contemporary Arts, Debrecen.
