Andreas Gursky

Andreas Gursky,

«Montparnasse», 1993
Paris, Montparnasse | Photography | © Andreas Gursky


The multi-storey, unusually wide building was just too big to photograph all at once. Therefore Gursky made two photographs, which he joined together digitally so that the assembled image resembles a single photograph again. As in a picture puzzle, two levels of image recognition emerge: from a certain distance the façade appears to be a flat, ornamental and lifeless structure; but under closer inspection we recognize people, furnishings, human activity, and the rigidly-structured façade becomes alive.

Nam June Paik
[Exposition of Music – Electronic Television]


Paik’s first major exhibition was held from 11 to 20 March 1963 in a gallery run by architect Rolf Jährling in his private residence. The title Paik chose indicates his transition from music to the electronic image. Four ‘prepared’ pianos, mechanical sound objects, several record and tape installations, twelve modified TV sets, and the head of a freshly slaughtered ox above the entrance awaited visitors.

Since the middle of the 1990s, Vanessa Beecroft stages performances that use naked and stylized female bodies as tableaus. In the case of this work from the year 2002, created in Sao Paulo, the determining stylistic elements chosen for the staging amount to a uniformed coloring of the flesh and the wearing of wigs.

Carsten Nicolai

Carsten Nicolai

The german artist/musican uses electronic sound and visual art as a kind of hybrid- tool to create his own microscopic view of creative processep. His world looks more like a laboratory- constantly morphing in space and time, influenced by the impulses of this media world, sound- the message as a code- becomes, the primary theme via visualised sound performance.
