Work In Motion, about Migration, Mobility and Labour:
The current change in global living conditions by new ways of communication and transport - often called globalisation - is enabled by certain developments within the media. The view of this development, with all its social and economic issues, is represented by mass media in a way that leads to a phenomenon Jean Baudrillard calls "Hyper reality", where the perception of mass media products starts to replace the independent view on the common reality.

Baudrillard suggests that the "production of alternative media" is a way back to a clear and more independent perception of reality.
The production of media products that do not fit within the common standard formats of mass media is what the work of media artists is about. The media works of "Work In Motion - migration, mobility and labour" are (re-)producing a clear view on social lives within the European and North American nations in times of rapid "globalisation".

The media art exhibition “WORK IN MOTION - migration, mobility and labour” intends to pool various artistic approaches in a pulsating art show.

DISCUSSION

Union of Heroes | Online Comic | Ruhr Area | Germany | English Language


Union of Heroes

www.unionofheroes.com

The Union of Heroes! In early 2007, we developed the idea for a team of superheroes from Germany. And it didn’t take us long to figure out a matching title. Where else could we place the cradle of our Union of Heroes than in the Ruhr Area? This is where we live und work, this is where we know our stuff, this is where our first story had to take place.
With this project, we - Eric Wünsche and Arne Schulenberg - try to live our dream.
Disregard for a moment that this is a comic! Ignore the fact that it is a photographed one! And don’t be surprised that our heroes experience their adventures here in Germany - and not in America, England, France, Japan or where else they usually do!
Please close your eyes for a moment and imagine what it would be like: Superheroes!
In the Ruhr Area! We would like to tell you their stories. And we are certain you will like them. So, draw the curtain: The time has come for new heroes! Welcome to the Union of Heroes!
Have fun reading!
