The Austrian media artist GŁnther Selichar delivers insight in current photographical projects topicalizing mass media. Selichar's works are inspired by modernity referring to Malewitsch, Newman, Rothko and Richter. He understands his photographic oeuvre as an educational contribution in the series of media critical elucidations and self-evidently refers back to the medium of photography, the oldest one among the new media.
Amidst the manifold attempts of current image production, Selichar's photographical work mode is taken on as an outstanding interpretation, which documents in each image the "incoherence" and medial wasting of space. Selichar's works exhibit that every media technical apparatus bears the represented to a "sphere of difference as a matter of principle" and thus generates a really productive difference.
