Wir freuen uns sehr Sie zum Werkvortrag „Another World with Difficulties“ von Jakob Kolding einladen zu können.
Die Veranstaltung findet in englischer Sprache statt.

How do found images function as a way of thinking about construction, de-construction and re-construction of meaning? Images are cut and pasted, re-contextualized and re-positioned, re-posted or re-presented, changing how they can be seen and understood and taking apart existing worlds and (re)making new ones. Images are everywhere every day. They are part of the construction of a physical, digital, psychological, social, economic and political space. Spaces defined by mutual interrelations and ever developing processes. As with images it is impossible to understand one part as isolated from its relationship to the world around it. In that sense re-working and re-positioning found images is a way of discussing the production of meaning and, at the end of the day, the production of power to define and represent. Images with difficulties.

Within this realm of image related politics Jakob Kolding discusses his artistic practice of the last decade and gives insight into his work with found and recontextualized footage.
