Leichter als Luft (lighter than air)

2019 airships warburg universe

In 2018 I published the visual essay “Lighter than Air” in the annual magazine of the Landesverband Bildende Kunst, Saxony. The thematic frame was “original and copy”. In 2019 I was invited to the exhibition “PARADIGMA Blickwechsel – copyright”. This probably because of the attention paid to “lighter than air”. It was obvious to take up this imagesy in order to develop a narrative installation that deals with the relationship to one’s own sources. The result was a Wunderkammer, an archive, a spatial collection of sources on the theme “Lighter than Air – World Trips”, journeys through the Warburg universe.
