Serious Games. War – Media – Art

The exhibition examines the conversion of war images into entertainment images, and thus the militarization of our imagination. We are not so much concerned with the question how war is represented in contemporary art, but with what kind of images the war generates, and how the art system deals with them, resp. what the art system generates opposed to them. With which kinds of images and with which kind of artistic strategies are war experiences evoked or made depictable.
We want to exhibit a constellation of works that themselves media-reflectively are concerned with the question of the image with regard to issues of war and violence. If there is also a downturn of the documentary image and an upturn of the animation image within the art system – and if so, in which ways? – is what we are trying to find out. (Antje Ehmann, Harun Farocki)

The Image in Question. War – Media – Art

Oue exhibition is a collection of art works dealing with the question:
how can the wars of the present and the experience of war be adequately represented? Can the military image be re-appropriated or how can it be countered?
What are different types of images capable of? – The image in question.
(Antje Ehmann, Harun Farocki)
