HIER UND SCHON NICHT MEHR HIER DA!

Photographs are comparable to language in that they are "reproductions from life" (Jochen Gerz). They are slices of real situations. But they are not what they show, they are just images on the surface, abstractions of reality. Thus, they become something like signs that play different roles, depending on who is watching and reading them. That is the foundation of Jochen Gerz's strategy for awakening our perception.

Andreas Vowinkel 1992

As the present becomes absent in a split second, the former must somehow be gasped. There are two possible ways to achieve this: either we inscribe the former into our memory or we allow images to do it for us.

Bojana Pejic 1993
