The Morning After exhibition marked the first time that media works from the Goetz Collection had been shown in northern Germany. Comprising 17 artistic positions representing a time span from the 1990s to the present day, it included major video installations and large-format video projections. The focus was firmly on the lyrical quality that is a characteristic of so many of the works in the Goetz Collection.
With an ever increasing flow of media images encroaching in every area of our lives, and with the brief attention span of our constant web and channel surfing habits becoming an almost natural trait, works of art can open up a place of contemplation. Slowing down perception, concentrating on details, structures and being aware of visual changes can all generate new ways of seeing. Living and dreaming, the conscious and the unconscious, the fleeting and the definitive, can merge in seductive ways. Video art reveals itself as the perfect vehicle for ambivalent feelings, vague ideas or attempts at approaching some complex theme. In the wake of intense mass media overkill, The Morning After provides a haven of peace and quiet concentration on essentials – a respite from the shallow distractions.
