In our everyday lives we are surrounded by objects that function as signs and media, as indications of what we are. The thing has been treated like a subject with its own biography ever since it became a major topic in cultural studies. The exhibition “The Biography of Things”, a joint project of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation, the Liebscher Photography class at Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach am Main, and students of the Curatorial Studies programme at Goethe University Frankfurt and Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste–Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main, explores the question of how in photography things can become actors and reveal new realities.
