Weekend Reflections #559 • Rückblick Reflection
Angela Merkel and the three previous chancellors are seated before Barnett Newmans enormous deep-red painting Vir Heroicus Sublimis (1950-1951). The cloud of smoke of Schmidts cigarette flutters void for this paragon of American expressionism. The main protagonists in German history have been reduced to marginal figures. This moment never took place. With his fictional photography Andreas questions our explicit trust in photography as a medium. So the brochure of the Momentum exhibition in Museum Voorlinden tells us.
Rückblick Reflection is my entry for Weekend Reflections #559.
