Eight years ago Impossible Project rescued and refurbished the last Polaroid factory in the Netherlands and have since become pioneers themselves in the world of instant film with the launch of their I-1 camera in July of this year.

This winter, the Impossible Project Lab is hosting an exhibition, which will feature a selection of works that explore the meanings and potential of instant photography as an ever-evolving art form. Instant Art includes photos that reveal the beauty of instant film’s unique limitations, then question, disrupt and deconstruct these limitations. The exhibition is a look at what can be achieved when you step outside the original white frame, to capture more than just a moment in time.
The latest exhibition at Impossible’s Berlin space proves that a photo doesn’t have to be a final, finished object – it can be a starting point for painting, drawing, collage or sheer, joyous destruction. Photos have been submerged or burned, scratched, scribbled or stitched on, cut up and put back together. Each one gives the viewer a new way to frame the world, revealing hidden truths in unexpected ways.
The evening is also set to feature creative works on instant film by artists including Ani Asvazadurian, Christopher Manning, Urizen Freaza, Wisse Ankersmit and more.
Impossible Project is open from November 17th until December 3rd at The Impossible Project Lab, 87 Potsdamer Strasse, Berlin 10785, Germany. Find out more here.
