Born in 1964 in Munich, German photographer Barbara Probst develops her research around the perception of the image. By questioning the informational value of photography, the artist invites us to rethink the role of the medium. Her approach is influenced by sculptural and performative practices that aim to question the viewer’s perspective. With x books to her credit, published by Steidl, Hatje Cantz, Hartmann Books and Éditions Xavier Barral, the artist has definitely made a name for herself on the contemporary scene. Her contribution in 2006 to the huge group exhibition New Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York brought her international recognition. Her images have been included in numerous collections including the Folkwang Museum, in Essen, Germany, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus of Munich, the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, as well as the Centre Georges Pompidou.
