The organism of the city in the startling interplay of deep matt black and brilliant white. Panoramas that create mysterious landscapes with familiar details. In superimpositions, smudges or deliberate blurring, they unfold new spaces of thought and time between materiality and immateriality. Layers of documentary and abstract material, rasters and artefacts, lineatures and white noise, which Betina Kuntzsch composes into highly complex video-drawings. Mehr anzeigen
At dawn, the bus seems stranded. Empty of people. Doors wide open, it stands in the middle of an embankment. Ready to set off, or the final stop? Construction cranes in the background and skyscraper façades are illuminated by the first glistening sunlight. The next beach bar is not far away. Wall surrogates at the memorial. Posts mark the former course of the memorial. As if pegged into place, some to be impaled on. Condensed into double posts, they take on the shape of cages. Behind them, the totally new building. Chic properties and lofts as investments or for personal use. Memory and history concreted over. The real fragment of the Wall is isolated, out of sight.
