"The current situation demands finding new ways of presentation and ways to keep the connection between art and art-consumers alive. Virtual exhibitions, online events, discussion and talks are increasing in popularity and a growing number of artists and independent venues start experimenting with hybrid forms of presentation.
In this vein, the cultural venue “Badstrasse 8”, a former bath barack in the frankonian city of Fuerth, started a new exhibition format called “Barrack Attack”, which offers an experimental platform for the creation of site-specific works and experiments with different ways of digitalised presentations.
My installation “time shift” plays a psychedelic perception game with time and senses. By repurposing obsolete media carriers I transform the space into an imaginary scene, full of light ,shadow and reflection. The space is optically deconstructed into a real-time collage. New angles, walls and shapes pop-up out of nowhere. Mirror glass objects fold and unfold the parts of the interior transmitting the distorted images even further.
The final film is a documentary and an impression at the same time, aiming to involve the viewer in the fantasticlight experience." Elizabeth Thallauer

Art Karlsruhe - Micky Mouse, neon and forest pathways
I decided to write this article about Art Karlsruhe two weeks after visiting the show, when it has ripen in my head, in a way to make an impression of the impression. Well, I am picking up cherries and don`t say a word about the flies on the cake. So, this impression is all about focusing your attention on few artists, I personally find very interesting, to keep a further eye on.
I'll start the PechaKucha with Wim Botha. Originally from South-Africa, this contemporary artist is getting well deserved attention in Europe lately. His installations and sculptural objects are free interpretations of classical themes and cultural heritage in a very unique style, with use of unconventional materials and playing with the context.
Anothervery interesting artist, who captured my attention is Philip Loersch. He creates strong objects by mixing painting and sculptural technics. Yes, it is a newspaper. No, it's painted.
Both Wim Botha and Philip Loersch were presented by the Berlin-based gallery FELDBUSCH-WIESNER-RUDOLPH.
