About the Book
This catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition "Der Prozess" der PROZESS hunchentoot goes out 2 Matthew Davis, Dennis Neuschäfer-Rube, Enda O’Donoghue, Manfred Peckl, Susanne Pomrehn, Gregor Stephan, Marc Volk und Günter Wintgens Leipziger Str. 63, 10117 Berlin Opening: 27th November 2009 at 19:00 Exhibition dates: 27th November – 22nd December 2009 Galerie hunchentoot presents the second in a series of "off-site" group exhibitions. Featuring the works of eight artists who play with the depictions of reality, the pieces intersect and collide to create a patchwork of perspectives. The meticulous reproduction or the systematic deconstruction of the photographic, filmic and cartographic object is itself a translation process, one that attempts to reconfigure a part of reality with a personal set of rules. It in turn requires re-translation on the viewer's part for the art to acquire a significance beyond that of the original maker. The pieces in Der Prozess demonstrate "other" representative potentials of a familiar medium by thorough breakdown: a large football stadium made up of controlled paint drips, an entire Kubrick film flattened frame by frame into a hypnotic colour matrix. They ultimately offer a challenge of interpretation, a reality filtered and arranged by the art producer, whose perception is decoded and contextualised by the viewer. In a way, Der Prozess not only intimates the observable mechanics on the surface of the artwork, but -- perhaps more importantly -- at the reciprocal acts of understanding and relaying a certain reality. Organised and curated by Gregor Stephan, Enda O'Donoghue and Hannes Uhlemann.
