Austellung Andreas Fogarasi - 1998, Aachen 2010
28.02. - 25.04.2010

In his multifarious works, Andreas Fogarasi reflects processes that shape our perception and behaviour but, due to their omnipresence in daily life, often pass below the threshold of our consciousness. The aesthetical and economical transformation of seemingly public spaces is just as much a part of these processes as the mechanisms of creating history. Andreas Fogarasi reveals its visible symptoms and translates them in highly aesthetical works.

For the exhibition, Andreas Fogarasi has produced a video about the Folkemuseum in Oslo that stages entire units of the buildings constructed at different times in the past. Another new work consists of a room installation of ten two-winged presentation walls from marble that show a series of photographs and serve both as a display, a sculptural object and a means of an architectural re-interpretation. Parallel to the exhibition, the theatre of the Ludwig Forum will show the videos that had been produced for the Hungarian Pavilion at the Venice Biennial of 2007.
Moreover, Andreas Fogarasi edited a supplement for the magazine 'dérive - Zeitschrift für Stadtforschung' that goes along with the theoretical discourses in this edition that focus on the topic 'reconstruction and deconstruction'.
