Seriosität_03

22. April 2022 — 29. May 2022

© Kilian Kretschmer und Benjamin Breitkopf

From April 22, 2022, the third part of the sequential artwork under the title Seriosität – INFO will be on display in the Schaufenster (shop window) Karlsruhe at the Marktplatz. The video installation will be shown between December 2021 and July 2022 in various Karlsruhe shop windows.

In front of a large-format display, the two artists set a specially built mirror grid, which reassembles all content and image layers from information broadcasts and opens up unusual perspectives. The starting point of the work is the question of how “serious” news media work and their rules. How can these be turned upside down and what new image content is generated – for example through a multi-perspective image structure?

In contrast to the usual reporting of serious sources, which want to suggest the most objective impression, Kretschmer and Breitkopf are concerned with subjectification that includes the viewer’s perspective, even makes it the core theme. With all possible interpretations of the content open, the two artists are not concerned with alternative points of view, but with countless variants within a single origin.
