MANIFESTO FOR AN EMANCIPATIVE PRODUCTION OF IMAGES


.it is not possible not to see...

The field of visual perception today is the most important space of production for ideologies, myths and ideas. Asthetic representations are open for ideological inputs while image-campaigns, films and visual strategies are working to invade our perception, to mould and to manipulate it.. We therefore consider it important to strengthen the emancipative intentions of visual thinking processes (Joseph Beuys).

recent updates on gerold tagwerker´s web folio


Gerold Tagwerker, an artist from Vienna, uses architectural photography and industrial-strength sculpture to undercut the grid-like monumentality of Modernist space." writes Kathryn Hixson about his work. "When Tagwerker was in the States and Canada recently, he took pictures of mid-century high rises, not the famous ones, but the mediocre ones that are ubiquitous in urban downtowns. Casually pointing his camera up from his hip to take the shots, the resulting images are liked pained glimpses upwards; we are forced to crane our necks to get the full force of the monolith. Tagwerker makes huge prints of these glimpses, and mounts them on boards, leaning them against the wall instead of hanging on it. They become aggressive stand-ins for the actual buildings, but are brought down to a one-to-one relationship with the viewer"

The recent exhibtion http://www.re-modern.at in the Kunstlerhaus Wien shows new light sculptures and interiors.

Siegrun Appelt - Information on new website


Through her photographs, videos and installations the Vienna-based artist Siegrun Appelt (born 1965 in Bludenz) displays and stages the variability, transition and motion against a background of heightent media- and technology relevance. Appelt`s thematic spectrum ranges from the subtly nuanced interplay of light and dark on textile drapery to atmospheric cloud formations, landscapes filmed “flying” past a moving train, or spaces and architecture exposed to varying light-effects and as such primarily addresses various forms of transition or relocation, together with the processes of change and differentiation.
