#FACELESS trailer is out!
See you on 25.04 7p.m 2018
At Austrian Cultural Forum. From 26 April until 13 June the extensive video installation in combination with framed works, masks and objects from the exhibition series “FACELESS” will be presented at the Gallery of the Austrian Cultural Forum Berlin. More than 30 works will be converted into digital format by various software and face-swapping apps, showing an apparent trend in art, fashion and the media since the turn of the century.
The exhibition series “FACELESS” explores the phenomenon of inescapable recognizability in the media and the resulting strategies of media users to become virtually faceless – a phenomenon that has become increasingly common in artistic practice after 9/11 and its socio-political consequences. “FACELESS” takes a radical look at this fairly recent phenomenon of everyday media culture and shows how it manifests in visual art, fashion, photography, advertising and dance. The works on show range from avant-garde masks to pieces that force open a dialogue with facial recognition software, surveillance cameras and drones. Themes included are seduction, surveillance and privacy.
The show features works by artists and designers such as @wheresaddie & Stefan Hechenberger, Ute Klein, @arambartholl , @martinbackes , Thorsten Brinkmann, @asgercarlsen , @shahramentekhabi_art , Karin Fisslthaler, Adam Harvey, Manu Luksch, Thomas Hörl & Jakob Lena Knebl, Geoffrey Lillemon, Simone Niquille, Bernd Oppl, Jan Stradtmann, @levivanveluw , @bernhardwillhelm many more... Free entrance! Soon more info on the book.
