Info: Rasender Stillstand is an artist book about Max Bresele. Although he was mainly known as an harsh outsider artist and one of the key figures of the anti-nuclear movement in Wackersdorf 1985, my own research revealed that behind the facade of this impulsive anti-capitalist and misfit there was also quite calm and peaceful person. This publication attempts to show the other side of an artist who was often misunderstood and received little to no attention. The place where this side became most visible was the garden on his small property, or as he himself said, “My garden, where I can be all sister.”
Info: An exploration of the intersections of performance art and protest. While the first half mainly deals with the historical and technical aspects of civil disobedience, the second half focuses on the evolution of political and resistive art. Additionally it offers an insight in the current state of political performance art and gives a brief glimpse at the future of the artistic forms of protest. Project as part of my BA-Thesis.
Info: The Absence of Reason brings forth Monsters is an exploration of how old and new techniques in the field of art can be combined to create something new, how and if an algorithm understands a data set consisting of fine art and how it deals with said data. A machine learning model was trained with Francisco de Goya’s Desastres de la Guerra and used to generate a new series of images, which were then set in relation to the original titles.
Info: The bilingual artist catalouge Blaue Fährte has been published on the occasion of the solo-exhibition of Leipzig-based artist Isabelle Dutoit at Galerie Leuenroth in Frankfurt am Main.
Info: The zine consists of a collection of photographs that have accidentally been taken without any further notice. Since none of the pictures show any recognizable motive, i decided to take a look at the meta data in order to draw some links to these unconsciously captured moments. The result seems like a blurry overview of the year 2020, while the subsequently found connections between images and their corresponding points in time sound like a swan song contemporary society with all its holiday, traditions and constant lack of solidarity.
