221110: MUSA – Museum auf Abruf Mutations III – Personae: Personal Image, Public Role

MUSA – Museum auf Abruf Mutations III – Personae: Personal Image, Public Role 05.11.10 until 27.11.10 Photography in the digital network For a long time, the zero-euro-photo has been serious competition for an analogue photo. And for years the Internet replaced the classic distribution forms for this medium whose ephemeral character multiplied through digitalisation. Photographs are uploaded in seconds and published worldwide. Personal snapshots on Facebook and Twitter: one man’s joy and another man’s sorrow. How artists utilize the Internet for photo-based works is presented by the main project of this year’s European Month of Photography, Mutations III. Public Images – Private Views. Institutions in Paris, Berlin, Bratislava, Luxembourg, Moscow and Rome are also displaying works under this motto. The photographs mounted on the wall attempt to make it clear that a gripping reality will also be possible in the future. Hubert Blanz distilled one user out of 500 million Facebook-users, graphically abstracted the connection to his 1,500 contacts, and ultimately translated the digitalized result in a large-format Diasec presentation. Visitors click through the show on a PC, visiting places such as the Caucasian Krasny Vostok near Sochi, and its partly underdeveloped infrastructure impressively documented by Rob Hornstra & Arnold van Bruggen. Or one can follow the traces laid out by Ewen Chardronnet & Benjamin Cadon with “Bangalore: Subjective Cartography”. Via mouse click Anders Bojen & Kristoffer Orum make things visible that are easily overlooked in an urban setting, and Susanne Wehr questions which identities are formulated if one posts private photographs on the Internet. It was a wise decision to only use MUSA’s niches and transition zones for this presentation. Thereby the main room is reserved for the smallest art magazine of the world. Photo artist Sissi Farassat offers an insight into 33 editions of her magazine “Sioseh”. One only has to stick one’s head into cardboard boxes.
