Her work incorporates a critical attitude towards the world around her, explicitly with regard to contemporary visual culture. Using a multitude of images taken by herself, she investigates their historical, social and visual effects. Korfmann creates a suggestion of distance and proximity at the same time and depicts realities, which neither the eye, nor the artist’s camera could have grasped. Her images are both an interpretation of her experience and of collective social memory. Korfmann grew up in Berlin but has lived and worked in Amsterdam since 1995.
