“What kind of book is it?”
In the projection The Democratization of Gods, drawings and texts by Andreas Chwatal assume the roles of actors in the spotlight of a decelerated movie. Deter mined by the reading tempo, the ostensibly random simul taneity of two projected slides seen sidebyside bursts linear narratives. Lines of handwritten texts respond to the mechanical chiaroscuro of the projector and the illumina ted style of the single drawings, thus transforming current events into timeless, interwoven poetics. Slide by slide, the viewer seems to leaf through a book about the conflict between historiography and utopia.
The exhibiton will be open from 31/03/17 - 13/05/17
