Projektinfo

For Fall 2016 I am preparing a book-based textual composition consisting of 33 polyphonic texts and a series of 33 photographs (working title: zone), that is supposed to find its counterpart both as an audio-composition and a series of video works. In Vienna I`m going to finish the textual part and working on the mentioned series of videos connected to the zone project.

From the formal point of view this work is an attempt to intercept in the tension between the textual and pictorial part. (With the textual part I mean simply short poetic text, the pictorial is a long-term documentation of the rigid as well as changing structure of the Raiffeisenbank building in Prague 4 as well as a series of video shots from the metro environment in Prague, possibly in Vienna and Budapest). The aim ist o articulate the mental landscapes, processes, perspectives as well as the absurd inward logic of a “Central-European mind” or an “mind-clima” of an possible subject. I can`t hide, that this is an attempt to pronounce an actual type of identity or subjectivity: to show the apparent tension between the personal conditions (with the perspective of the heterosexual white male based in the post-soviet capital in Eastern Europe) and the more abstract, yet almost tangible interpersonal patterns (organic structures of local and global media, social and economical state of affairs in the ex-socialistic / ex-capitalist environment).

Dokumentation

At MuseumsQuartier in summer 2016, I was working on a book-based textual composition consisting of 44 texts and a series of 44 photographs entitled zone. It was also supposed to find its counterpart both as an audio-composition and a series of short video works. During my stay I kept my focus on the textual part and partially on the video editing. This project was part of a long time project, which started some 4 years ago. Due to my stay at MuseumsQuartier I had the oppertunity to finish it this year and later on published in printed form (in December 2016, Rubato Publishing House, Prague).
With zone I made an attempt to articulate the mental landscapes, processes, perspectives as well as the absurd inward logic of a “Central-European mind” or an “mind-climate” of an possible subject. I can`t hide, that I was trying to articulate an actual type of identity or subjectivity and show the apparent tension between the personal conditions (with the questionable perspective of a heterosexual white male based in the post-soviet capital in Eastern Europe) and the more abstract, yet almost tangible interpersonal patterns (organic structures of local and global media, social and economical state of affairs in the ex-socialistic / ex-capitalist environment). From the formal point of view this work is an attempt to intercept the simple, yet complex tension between the textual and pictorial message. Short poetic texts stand in combination with the long-term documentation of the rigid as well as changing structure of the Raiffeisenbank building in Prague – Pankrác as well as a series of video shots from the metro environment mainly in Prague.
