The new online series provides all who are interested with exciting insights into topics and questions about the artistic positions of the exhibitions. For the Artist-Statement, the artists are each asked five short questions, whereby new insights into their work emerge and a current reference to conceptual art is established.
Heinrich Dunst is currently seen as the Austrian conceptual artist. His work focuses on the analysis of art and on testing its potential, with language and object in an open dialogue with one another. Important questions concerning the function and the conditions of art are raised, and they run up against reality and its challenges. These finely tuned works follow a conceptual approach that refers to the specific place where they are presented within an open interplay of images, language, and context. The concrete production and processing of art is at the center, and it is directly and humorously tested as to its relevance. Dunst sets art and its signs in motion by creating a dynamic referential media interplay of the visible and invisible, composed of image, film, and language — thereby proposing possible responses to the ambiguous signs of our fragmented present.
