Monika Funke Stern Is a media artist, painter, photographer, director and author. The pictures of the catalogue have a narrative structure, they tell a story. The pictures play with reality. Thereby twitters emerge, which are neither paintings nor photographies. ¬ĽHybrides resulting from reality and algorithms, antagonism to the laziness of the eye, frozen pictures of analysed movements.¬ę (MFS)

Paintings don’t represent reality, they don’t create a picture of the world. Describing the world by images is a task of reflection. The traps, illusions, lies and meta-lies are connected to this problem. What is important is to perceive  the illusion as an illusion, knowing what is the reality of the lie and what is not a lie in the sense of deceiving.

The catalogue with the title ¬ĽThe Hole in a Coat of perception¬ę shows a selection of photography, film and painting, twitter and hybrids mostly of the last two years (2016-2018).

Authorship: Dr. Dorothée Bauerle-Willert, Monika Funke Stern
