Overview

Jeff Weber (lives and works in Berlin) develops a photographic practice that is experimental in a rigorous sense: it revolves around what he refers to as his attempt to create a personal epistemology, by exploring the contemporary conditions of the image.

The subsequent book An Attempt At A Personal Epistemology (Roma Publications, 2018) is the result of his longterm project Kunsthalle Leipzig. Established by Weber in 2012, the institution functioned as an extension of his photographic practice as well 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, in this sense, the essentially social dimension of photography as an epistemological principle. Rather than an isolated object, the photographic image is enmeshed in and emerges as a nodal point within a complex of social relations - interpersonal, artistic, material - and it is this set of relations that are crystallised in the image.
