True Truth About the Nearly Real

A Reader

Eds. Karen Knoll & Florian Malzacher. Frankfurt: Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, 2002.

With the forfeiture of master narratives, society and art have largely lost the possibility to take unambiguous ethical, political, but also aesthetic positions. New framings, representative orders, shifts in cultural, political and scientific paradigms challenge our concepts of identity, reality and ethics. But how and in what way do our realities break down? What new decipherments are necessary to understand the world? And how can these starting points be the beginning or result of an artistic process?
