At first glance, one might think that Olaf Unverzart is presenting the image collection of a well-traveled man. Taken over three decades and on five continents, his images initially suggest ethnographic documentation. Looking at the works more carefully, however, it becomes apparent that something else is at stake. Despite their surface value, Unverzart's photographs lack the usual characteristics of travel pictures, of "pictures from around the world." . They are precisely not interested in the supposedly authentic geographical and cultural signatures of the areas traveled, the particularities of the landscapes and artifacts.

The deliberate inattention to the spectacular - to objects, people, and performances that purport to vouch for autochthony - underscores this impression. The pictures have nothing to do with onlookers, they show themselves unimpressed by everything that comes across as an event. They are not concerned with what is going on, what is happening and what catches the eye, but rather with what is not happening in this way, what is not to be recognized as an event right away.
