Under the title Spotting, Brigitte Konyen and Michael Michlmayr present works in which they employ similar artistic strategies to study and monitor their own past.

Brigitte Konyen’s series Snapshots deals with the history of her female ancestors, who come from a deeply conservative social fabric, and the successive attempts at liberation in subsequent generations. The artist assembles photographs from the family archive and examines the significance of gestures, body language, and clothing in the socialization of women.

In Revisiting the Past, Michael Michlmayr uses his own archive of black-and-white negatives to look back at private as well as social events; the act of viewing and observing is present through the manipulation of the film strips.

In the video of the same name we hear the regular clicks of a shutter release, reminding us of the historically analogue nature of photography.
