Daniel Blaufuks has been working on the relationship between public and private memory, one of the constant interrogations in his work as a visual artist. He has exhibited widely in museums, private galleries, and festivals and works mainly in photography and video, presenting his work through books, installations, and films. He holds a PhD from the University of Wales, where he wrote on photography and film in relation to the work of W.G. Sebald and Georges Perec, as well in relation to memory and the Holocaust.
"Daniel Blaufuks’ work reveals a peculiar combination of (auto)biography and historical analysis, travel and diary entries, factography and fictionality, with a predilection for an artistic and meditative approach towards the collective and individual realities we inhabit and the past that affects them. Through the annotation of moments, spaces and objects of everyday life, frequently subjected to the articulation of photography’s historical value and rememorative potential, Daniel Blaufuks’ work also distinguishes itself through a persistent reflection on the nature and perceptive potential of the image."
