Während ihres einjährigen Aufenthaltes in Cairo 2017 stand Katharina Stumm im Austausch mit ihrer Kollegin Lina Augustin. Diese schickte der Künstlerin Fotos, Schnappschüsse. Die Antworten waren Konstruktionen aus Bildern und Texten.
From a book about architecture of the 50s in California, “Meditarranean to modern”, the motifs are selected and extracted. While dreaming of the beautiful places, the Mediterranean can be brought to California and yet the places are always to be seen differently, is not the place, the architecture decisive. Katharina Stumm intervened, made trips and in the end packed the spatial into a portable two dimensional image.
It remains the idea of architecture, the idea of space but as in a dream, slightly changed, a skepticism about reality arises, how bewitched it feels
The life, from childhood to old age, of Ernst Jandl in pictures.
From the illustrated biography about the poet, “a komma punkt ernst jandl – Ein Leben in Texten und Bildern”, the motifs are selected and extracted. By interventions with chalk and ink, by censoring and adding, new texts without words are created, “JandlKommaStumm”.
