Professor at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Beate Gütschow characterises her photographic artwork as rather an accidental result, assuming her role as installer as much as photographer. With the aid of computer software such as Photoshop, she works like traditional painters; conceiving of an image before realising it bit by bit through patiently stored fragments of photographs.
She thus explores the relationship between reality and photographic representations by questioning how our visual perception may be influenced through prior knowledge of other images.
