Review: ‘Archive Matters: Fiona Tan at the Ludwig Museum’

Exhibition: Fiona Tan ‘GAAF’ at Museum Ludwig, Cologne May 4 – August 11, 2019.

Looking at how women are framed in these photographs, and with Griselda Pollock’s Encounters in the Virtual Feminist Museum (2007) in mind, I have to wonder why Tan decided to retrieve the Agfa images, how they relate to her artistic practice, and what this tells us about the position of women in museums today.
