Fictions

Large inanimate objects, at this state radically defunctionalized, appear not to be out of this world but in the same time they seem so familiar. Filip Dujardin has been working on a series since 2007 whose humor and entertainment value is accompanied by references to art history: »Fictions presents wonderful objects in conceptional subjectivity and is full of jocularity and persiflage. With the aid of a digital collage technique consisting of photographs of existing buildings in and around Ghent, the city of his birth, the artist creates buildings that have been ingeniously imbedded in the landscape and whose construction would be impossible—fabrications in the true sense of the word.«

Justice Has Been Done

Media Artist Franz Reimer got the idea for his performance clip Justice Has Been Done from White House photographer Pete Souza’s now iconic press photo so-called »Situation Room«, which was taken at 4:06 pm on May 1, 2011. It captures President Obama and his national security team as they watched the killing of Osama bin Laden live on a screen. Reimer’s reenactment of this unprecedented media event was worked out step by step.

Migrants Not Welcome

Banksy is for ages now constantly working on the highest level of civil disobedience. This stencil showing a group of pigeons holding anti-immigration banners towards an exotic-looking bird was quickly removed by the District Council of Clacton-on-Sea, England, which said someone had complained it was racist. Usually nothing to worry about, better removed than being stolen by art collectors.
