When you’re on the Net, are you lost? Or found? And the rest of us—lost or found—are we on it, or in it?, Museum für Fotografie Berlin, 26. 04. – 02.06.2019

The work „Rembrandt“ is a digital photograph, reconstruction and „remix“ of the painting „Self Portrait with Halsberge“ (ca. 1626) by the Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn.
In the original painting, the young painter expresses his youthful self-confidence and his social aspirations, by presenting himself for the first time in a noble attire.
The reproduction photography was provided for this project by the Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg, which holds the original painting and was processed in collaboration with the retouch agency RGBerlin.
