I put up a new description text for the Forensic Inventory Excavations project.

In short, it is a storytelling tool box.

Documentation Report is shown in the International Competition Super 8/16 on 23 March at Dresdner Schmalfilmtage.

In other news I have updated my artist's statement, which has been a constant work in progress since the inception of this page.
In the future, I would like it to resemble a mission statement, with my future goals and plans stated. As it is, it was hard enough to define my current process. After 5 years of art school I may have finally found a somewhat fitting approach.

Currently I am working on an essay film that merges elements of the long term research I've done both for TRADITION and Forensic Excavations Inventory. It is supposed to be finished for my graduation in July as well perhaps shown in a slot at Fotofestival Arles.

Also, for some time now my CV has been listing (some of) my failures next to my accomplishments and biographical facts. For the longest time I have been in conversation with Lars Preisser about the possibility of the artist's CV as a storytelling tool. Lars and I have already been collaborating on a few occasions as the dialectic consultation Pimp My Exhibit.

The idea of the CV as a site of storytelling is the nuclear idea and has the potential to expand into a multimedia work. So far we have made several project sketches.
As a start, we collected and analyzed hundreds of artist's CVs from our immediate surroundings, colleagues, friends and professors. By tracing the schools and supporting institutions we wanted to understand the connecting points that exist between the careers of these artists.
The motivation is to make transparent the social and economic dynamics that drive the art world opposed to the current narratives available.
