  • Achim Mohné | Symposium: We do/are photography, Photo Scene Cologne

  • Achim Mohné and Michael Reisch talk about their darktaxa project in Dialogue 3 of the symposium. It is about phenomena of the digital starting from the medium of photography with a view to future potentials and developments. This approach flows significantly into teaching: What are the latest and relevant developments in photography and photography-based tools? How can these be taught and what should be part of a contemporary photography education in practical and theoretical terms? Topic: 'The Medium and Us | Photography in Progress'. Thursday October 20, 2 to 8 p.m. Kunsthafen im Rhenania Bayenstraße 28, 50678 Cologne more information:

  • Achim Mohné | winner of the 'Environment & Art Awards', Kummer-Vanotti-Foundation

  • Achim Mohné is the award winner of the ‘Environment & Art Award‘ annually donated by the Kummer-Vanotti-Foundation (established 2018). In 2021 the jury has chosen Mohnés artwork ‘Low_Poly_Tree’. The environmental sculpture park of the Kummer-Vanotti Foundation will be created on the island of Grafenwerth after completion of the construction measures from spring 2022. The plan is to place high-quality artworks addressing an environmental theme on the island. The artworks, which are freely accessible to everyone, are intended to emphasize to viewers the need for a sustainable approach to nature and the environment. ‘Low_Poly_Tree’ borrows its form from the virtual representation of a tree, as it appears on Google Earth in 3D mode, gives the sculpture its form. The artificial tree has been transposed from virtuality back into the real world, on a scale of 1:1. Thus the real tree and its digital counterpart made of polished steel face each other. While the "real" tree changes with the seasons and grows larger, the sculpture remains unchanged. The aim is to produce the sculpture in the most environmentally friendly way possible, using state-of-the-art digital processes and sustainable materials as well as climate-neutral techniques. The carbon footprint created by production will be determined and offset. The award ceremony will take place in October.

  • DI_GI_TA_LIS. A Plant Scan Project by Achim Mohné, ed. by Achim Mohné and Hatje Cantz 2020

  • The book project DI_GI_TA_LIS A Plant Scan Project by Achim Mohné is based on a performance by the media artist, in which plants are scanned using a high-tech process, printed out and finally exhibited as pigment prints. As part of this artistic action, cooks process the plant material into vegan dishes and serve them to visitors. In DI_GI_TA_LIS, the performative work fits into an interdisciplinary discourse developed by authors from the fields of philosophy, art history, social psychology, medicine and media studies.
