“Michael Schirner appropriates a series of historical snapshots by working on images found in newspapers and on the Internet. From Robert Capa’s picture of a falling Republican soldier in 1936 to video surveillance images of the last time Princess Diana was seen alive in 1997, the artist erases elements which would a priori make these images instantly recognisable. This clever process compels visitors to search their photographic memory to reconstruct the whole image and the historical event to which to refers.” Katalogtextnach oben
