Zu Gast: Vika Kirchenbauer
Looking And Being Looked At In Times Of Transparency
In her work Vika Kirchenbauer explores opacity in relation to representation of the ʻotheredʼ through ostensibly contradictory methods like exaggerated explicitness, oversharing and perversions of participatory culture. She discusses the troublesome nature of ‘looking’ and ‘being looked at’ as well as its affective impacts on the individual in larger contexts including labour within post-fordism and the experience economy, modern drone warfare and its insistence on unilateral staring, the power relationships of psychiatry, performer/spectator relations, contemporary art display and queer representational politics as well as the everyday life experience of ambiguously gendered individuals.
