What role do images play in our memory? Which images find their way into our collective memory? Photographer Florian Rainer talks with curator Jana Franze about his series "Transitions" (2010-17) in which he explores the metaphorical power of images and the potential of photography. In his project "Fluchtweg" (2015) he directed the lens to those sides of the refugee movement in 2015 that were mostly overlooked and created a contemporary document of public discourse through a combination of photography, media reports and "found footage" from social media.
