Tentakuläres Gestalten - Denkmuster & Fadenspiele
The process of recognising, analysing and dissolving one's own thought patterns and the various perceptions within the respective stages are the focus of this work. These subjective perceptions become visible through the implementation in different artistic works, through the personal confrontation of the viewers with them and thus become comprehensible. Among other things, Donna Haraway's "Tentacular Thinking" is used as a method for releasing thought patterns and enabling new thinking. A constant change of perspective, the separation and connection of links play an important role,
as does the search for a new togetherness that transcends conventional boundaries. This serves not only as a theoretical basis, but also as a practice that integrates the works of other artists in exchange, thus creating interactions and emphasising their significance. Overall, this work is intended as an invitation to the viewers to become aware of their own thought patterns and to encourage (joint) reflection.
