Volume V – Anna Vogel & Maria Müller-Schareck

November 2021

Anna Vogel lives in the Austrian mountains, in Tyrol, I live in the lowlands of the Rhine, in Düsseldorf. One, therefore, in the midst of the peace and majesty of the Alps, the other in a big city characterized by densification, traffic, and hecticness. The different speed that dominates our lives is one of the central themes in Anna Vogel’s work. Based on photography, she challenges its documentary potential by productively disrupting the surface of the image, literally overlaying and enriching it. Our conversation, conducted in the midst of the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, was possible thanks to digital communication; fast, but an inadequate substitute for face-to-face encounters.

Latent Fiction: Jimmie Durham, Michael Franz, Ulrich Hakel, Marie von Heyl, Martin Kohout, Mirja Reuter, Joseph Walsh, curated by Mika Schmid

8.04.2016–20.05.2016

Latent Fiction reflects on the ambivalence of the individual being viewer and part of a system simultaneously. The assemblage of work sparks a dialog between the various meanings of wish and desire.

To wish or to desire entails the construction of a framework – Gilles Deleuze speaks of the absence of isolated perception in what is defined as a wish (Abécédaire: désir). Desire will always address an entire construct of elements and is in close correlation to a societal field in which it exists.

At the same time desire flows, is invention and experiment, and essence of all productive processes. It is a canalized catalyst for the artistic as well as industrial production. As an object, it further reproduces itself there where it is staged: in designated contexts, architectures and displays, hereby becoming a measure for social relationships.

The artist can trigger shifts within these constructs and lay bare the absurdity of our concrete reality during the moment of its transformation

Participating artists: Jimmie Durham (*1940), Michael Franz (*1974), Ulrich Hakel (*1973), Marie von Heyl (*1981), Martin Kohout (*1984), Mirja Reuter (*1986) und Joseph Walsh (*1978)
