Driton Selmani - Archeology of Capitalism

Archeology of Capitalism, 2012 — ongoing

12×12 cm photographic prints


In the Archaeology of Capitalism photograph series, Selmani conducts an investigation into found objects that were taken from socially shifting landscapes. The photographs subtly focus on artificial structures of everyday life in order to unfold their facts and boost their fictions. His central intention is to extract the otherness, the witty, and the something-ness of the ordinary by pointing the camera at something familiar yet alien.
