Since the start of globalisation, Armin Linke has been forming an archive chronicling the upheavals that have transformed the world since capitalism became the rule. His photos come from the four corners of the globe and show a broad range of places and institutions. He has focused, too, on the transformation of infrastructures as well as the connections between post-industrial societies through digital information and communication techniques. His work records the profound economic, environmental and geological changes that make up our highly technological world in the Anthropocene. His 2017 exhibition at CPG offered the public an excellent overview of these concerns. For OSMOSCOSMOS, the artist has selected photographs from the Cerro Paranal space observatory in Chile along with a picture of Moscow’s training centre for cosmonauts.
