31. Hansjörg Palm, key-codes oder der Schlüssel steckt..., 2002
Hansjörg Palm uses over 70 appearances by shoes to illustrate a whole range of contrasting pairs in the precise sense of the word. He uses shoe types he has made himself to code concepts like "beginning and end", "dirt and cleanliness", "war and peace", "mountain and valley".

  32. Daniel Pflumm, CNN Questions and Answers, 1997
The starting-point for Pflumm's work is the CNN program Questions and Answers. But this is not just the usual quizzing of experts: a striking reduction has been undertaken. Pflumm concentrates on the minimal moment in which an eye opens, endlessly repeated in a loop. The monotonous music emphasizes this condition of constant repetition. There is no communication, and certainly no dialogue. What remains is the classic look of a new broadcast with stereotypical images of a television link-up from Washington to Switzerland.

  33. Walid Ra‘ad, Hostage, The Bachar Tapes / 2001, 2001
Souheil Bachar was abducted in the Lebanon, shut up in a cell he had to share with five American hostages for three months. Bachar proves an impressive report about his captivity and his relationship with the five Americans. He talks about sexual abuse and the mass media's lack of interest in him as a person.

  34. Patrick Rau, Video Scans Image Creation Method, 2002
A film is made up of many individual images shown in sequence. It is only the special way in which they are shown that produces a film for the viewer's eye. The Video-Scans Image Creation Method project turns precisely this fact upside down. A scanner is positioned on a screen in order to reduce the moving images to a single one. The length of the technical process means that all the individual frames are crammed together to form a single image. Varying degrees of abstraction are produced according to the film that is used as a basis, with the time factor, whether it relates to film time or the scanning process, is always obvious. [Carmen K.

  35. Jan Rehwinkel, Der Tag X, 2002
After spending a substantial period abroad, you anticipate on return that your immediate surroundings will have changed as you have had so many new experiences. Then ultimately you are disappointed when it turns out that nothing has changed at all. In Rehwinkel's Der Tag X, people are asked among other things about their memories of certain squares, streets and places that look different today. It is not the same as the situation after a journey: the memories have been buried very deep, and have to be dug up again. Your surroundings, which used to be seen as everyday, lose their clarity because of the distance in time. Only old photographs can jog the memory. [Carmen K. Beckenbach]
