The artistic work of Peter Piller is characterized in particular by his photo archive, whose images – newspaper photos and aerial photographs – he compiles in series according to design elements and content correspondences and also publishes as artist books. The work of archiving and compiling photographs by Peter Piller is transferred in the exhibition to the archiving and compiling of Peter Piller’s artist publications in the sense of a meta-archive.
