Willie Doherty (*1959 in Derry) works with photography, video, and sound installations. Many of his narratives question the capacity of certain aspects of visual representation to convey the truth, a quality supposedly possessed by contemporary media. Doherty’s works occupy the narrow void between documentary and staged compositions, reflecting a world that is shaped by television news, the fantasies spun in movies, tourist-oriented information, popular stereotypes, and collective memory. The heated conflict in Ireland also repeatedly appears as a subtext throughout Doherty’s oeuvre. Exhibition schedule: Kunstverein in Hamburg, May 19–September 2, 2007 · Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau, Munich, September 29, 2007–January 6, 2008
