Boris Mikhailov

Press release

Boris Mikhailov – Before Sleep / After Drinking

In celebration of Boris Mikhailov’s eightieth birthday, C/O Berlin will be showing more than 400 photographs that provide an overview of his oeuvre in its entirety. Themes like the body, system critique, mortality, and humor are interwoven with Mikhailov’s own biographical history. Projected images, framed pictures on the wall, and table display cases underscore the diversity of forms his work taken as well as the materiality of photography as object. Their interplay gives rise to a dense formalistic, ideological, and emotional dialog with Mikhailov’s life’s work.
