Time shift II - Posun v Case II is a sequel to the precursory exhibition between Berlin and Prague and a continuation of fruitful collaboration that already took place in both cities in 2018/19. This year, emphasis is laid on works of art that have largely been formed and created by so-called new media.

Cooperation between the German and Czech artists has been an exchange in positions and ideas from each artistic scene, enhancing a mutual knowledge of each other’s culture and artistic methods.

This month 16 artists present their work together in the VBK gallery, eight of which are from the NSPU Prague, eight from the VBK. Due to Covid we have decided to project the artists’ work in photographic form. This bilateral project seeks to further strengthen the ties between both countries and establish an on-going relationship.

Due to Covid and the nature of this bilateral project between Berlin and Prague, we have put additional emphasis on the virtual side of presentation. The artists from Prague have kindly submitted their works in photographic form, so that a presentation of all works can be displayed simultaneously. Different forms and methods have been added since the launch of this project in 2018, so that a continuous virtual display is possible. This coming May the baton is handed over to the Czech artists and will be communicated here accordingly with various digital material available on request.

MindsetsON WorldSTAGE

MindsetsON WorldSTAGE

Opening, Friday the 24th May 2019

From the 25th of May to the 16th of June Carolina Patino Mayer, Claus Feldmann and Franziska Rutishauser present their work as part of the art exhibition MindsetsON WorldSTAGE.

In this particular exhibition, all three artists focus on a conceptual assessment of photography. As opposed to a snapshot, these staged photographs are compiled to evoke a conscious view of the image and invite to re-intertpret its contents. Technology is used to support this approach but is not meant to distract the spectator in their mental activity. The three artists do not want to simply re-tell the visual world but intend to will the suspension of disbelief. Time sequencing inhances the process, dismantling and playing with layers of expectation. The ultimatle aim is to make the spectator aware of the perceptional traps we tend to fall into when looking at so-called realistic photographs. These image-concepts are designed to lay bare the illusion of an objective reality and contribute to the disenchantment of viewing the world solely on our owns terms.
