Stefanie Koscher: Screenshots of Despair
FREE ENTRY, ART
• Days with event
Opening: Tue, May 7, 19:00
In „Screenshots of Despair“ the multimedia artist and musician Stefanie Koscher shows a selection of collage and mixed media works she created over the last decade in different parts of the world (NYC, Berlin, Wien, Carinthia). Inspired by photoshop-style layering, the works show analogue compositions of mindfully selected images, trying to bring some sort of utopian order into a chaotic overflow of visual stimuli, that we are exposed to even more so in our everyday virtual realm. The results of this process are often dissonant, alienated and strange and put a spot on the absurd. The endproducts become some sort of connective tissue to the collective unconscious, and ask the spectator to intuitively decrypt context individually.
