Ilit Azoulay moved into a studio at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art Berlin in June 2013 and used her five-month residency to develop her interest in the archaeology of cities. During her travels throughout Germany, she collected and photographed objects and architectural fragments in towns and cities from Berlin to Bamberg, as well as in the KW building itself. In the process she developed narratives about her finds based on correspondence with squatters, botanists, and taxidermists.For her exhibition »Shifting Degrees of Certainty« at KW, Azoulay presented ninety-three photographed objects in a site-specific installation, combined with an audio guide. A publication of the same title, published in the form of a paperback book, accompanies the exhibition and examines the project’s archival character. It contains images of the work on view, along with all the texts from the installation’s audio guide.
