die_reale_abstraction

 

 

The project “Die reale Abstraktion” has as its point of departure the material and, more specifically, visual properties of money. The title, originally introduced by Marx, is a reference to the processes of abstraction taking place during the real procedures of commodity exchange.

 

In the works euro bank notes are used as a reference point. Through enlargement and serialrepetition by means of silkscreen techniques, anabstract visual imagery is produced. An object closely affiliated to societal practices is being gradually defamiliarized, transformed into a field of contemplation.
