Everything is Wrong’ '77as a group exhibition curated by Antonia Donze-van Saanen, featuring artists who, as a form of contemporary social critique, place themselves in the continuum of history. Brettle was selected because her images interrogate the themes of art history through the politics and ethics of present day photographic practice. This output recognised the researcher’s involvement with the politics of display and confirmed her scope as an artist who uses social criticism to confront history and aesthetics. The exhibition also included Marc Bijl, David Casini, Gregory Forstner, Christian Gonzenbach, Mona Hatoum, Jean-Pierre Khazem, Cyril Macq, Henrik Plenge Jakobsen, Elodie Pong, Rachel Reupke, Didier Rittener, Devorah Sperber, and Susanne Weirich. A catalogue was published by the Museum and a Swiss TV video, which includes an interview with Brettle, can be viewed at: http://www.art-tv.ch/everyth_is_wrong.html. Brettle’s contribution to ‘Everything is Wrong’ was discussed in her contribution to ‘Appearances’, the Annual Photographers Lecture at Edinburgh College of Art (November 2004) and then published in Studies: The Scottish Society for the History of Photography Journal (October 2005). The ideas used in this output were anticipated in earlier works included in two publications: 1) Fotografi Som Offentllig Kunst, Forbundet Frie Fotografer (2001) contained a Brettle sitework entitled Fallen www.utsmykkingsfondet.no/html/publikasjoner_2.html; 2) The Deutsche Bank Art Collection Catalogue (2003) illustrates Brettle’s photographs in the Deutsche Bank Art Collection, London. www.deutsche-bank-kunst.com. Brettle’s critical revisioning of the photographic subject and her innovative use of lens-based media led to her appointment as principal supervisor of Yee’s doctoral project, a Northumbria studentship, entitled: ‘The Influence Of Narrative and Photography in Healthcare Dialogue’. Yee explores the psychological benefit of curating photographic projects in healthcare environments.
