Erli Grünzweil's statement
A backlash on the political and social situation in Austria and Europe—produced between the events of the national holidays and circling around the elections of 2017. Through contextualizing, combining and manipulating these images of different conditions of living, they are developing into new correlations, narrations and both compressed and displaced views on the present age pointing towards a future minted by the yesteryear, strongly bearing those tendencies. Production-related references, color tone and framing are supporting the critical content in a series of three acts. Photography as a medium itself, social conventions and political mechanisms are here both questioned and illustrated.
