Alexander Kadow was born 1985 in Germany. He lives and works as artist in Berlin.
His works deal with the border areas of photography and explore the question of what photography is capable of conveying.
Inspired by the approaches of conceptual art, he transfers ideas and questions into a visual level through experimental setups in analogue and digital photo labs, and through photographic series. In doing so, it plays a decisive role to create aesthetically appealing works, which usually reveal their origin only through their title. The tension between concept and object should raise questions and stimulate reflection.
After studying photography at Lette Verein Berlin from 2007-2010 he studied Fine Arts at Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg (HfbK, university of fine arts) in the class of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin and continued with the Master program. In 2017-2019 he attended the masterclass of Ute Mahler and Ingo Taubhorn at Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie Berlin.
