In the exhibition witness to the (digital) world, Fleckstein and Dworczyk realize multimedia works site-specifically for the exhibition space of the Kunstverein. They address the unity and inseparability of current technological developments with the realities of our lives and reflect on the phenomena of a digital culture. Via screenshots, manipulated user interfaces of digital applications as well as artificially generated voices and body images, the artists approach the motifs, elements and details of the (digital) everyday life in a dialogical way.
In their work, the ambiguity of social networks in terms of self-presentation and the underlying reality as well as the relationship between anonymous user behavior and media prominence take on an important role. Private and personal everyday objects meet media references in the installations. The duality of digital and analog worlds is questioned, the problematic nature of the supposed binary principle is revealed.
Hannes Fleckstein and Mateusz Dworczyk have been working together in dialogue since 2018. The individual and social handling of image data is the starting point for their joint artistic practice. They embrace the possibilities of digital image production and examine images as signs in the environment of socio-technical networks.
