Work in progress // made in collaboration with Jens Pfeifer
emphasising on the production and handling of artistic goods and values
in a local, global and digital context we want to present a visual
manifest of the artistic and cultural production process: We are
fascinated by the process of industrial manufacturing of art and culture
as opposed to the romantic notion of the lonely artist in the studio. In particular, places where art is manufactured draw our interest: where objects, as a
proof of cultural identity are materialised. By doing
so we intend to show that artistic meaning is not only found in a
finished artwork, but that anterior and posterior processes of artworks
can be equally meaningful.
The work investigates how much we identify
with cultural traditions expressed in the different processes of making.
