B. 1980 in Luxembourg, lives and works in Berlin.
Jeff Weber’s practice revolves around what he refers to as his attempt to develop a personal epistemology. In 2014, he established the Kunsthalle-Leipzig, a project in the form of a gallery space, which he ran through 2017 as an extension of his photographic practice and as a conceptual frame to invite others to actively participate. Here, the collaborative dimensions of Weber’s practice explore the significance of these encounters with alterity and the social dimension of photography as an epistemological principle. Rather than an isolated object, the photographic image is enmeshed within a matrix of social relations that are interpersonal, artistic, and material.
