information and apocalypse


The 11 th September 2001 has wrought great changes – above all it has drastically altered our modes of perception. The representation in the media of terroracts and events of war has reached a complete- ly new dimension and transmuted into a full frontal assault on the way we perceive and order things.

We find ourselves confronted with a massive and ever more rapid turnover both of the events themselves and of their medial representation, the attacks in New York, and especially the 2003 Iraq war, have given us the blueprint for the conduct of war in the 21st century and its presentation in the media: a blueprint in real-time.

"information und apocalypse" is an attempt to produce a counter-text based on transmitted media images and to extend and enrich it with original pictorial works.
Thus the exhibition is equally informed by a decon- structivist approach and by the input of new creative work. Television images of the events of 1I th September and the last Iraq war are reorganized, set in new contexts and supplemented with original photographic compositions.

Three main features characterize the transformed structure of visual discourse since the 11th September: real-time, the blurring visuals, and the cinematographic vision.

"information and apocalypse" was created in collaboration with Dieter Jaufmann.
