Realit;-)t. video works from Sammlung Goetz in Munich. From Olaf Breuning to Sam Taylor-Wood
August 26 – October 25, 2005 | Seedamm Kulturzentrum Päffikon, Charles and Agnes Vögele Foundation

What is reality? What is fiction? In an age when perception of the world is largely conveyed by media images, the boundaries seem to blur. This exhibition brings together 30 video works by a younger generation of artists who confront these questions.

Electronic media shape the youth and recreational time of a younger generation. Against this backdrop, young artists are developing a great interest in using their media works to highlight the rites, problems and identity questions of youth. Collector Ingvild Goetz finds the medium of video suited like no other to reflect our world with its social, political and artistic facets. Will we soon perceive reality only through images brought to us via the media? "No cause for concern" say the exhibition curators. With a knowing wink, they have thus exchanged the 'ä' in 'Realität' [Reality] in the exhibition title for an emoticon.
