THIS IS / THE RIGHT HAND UP, 2013
reading room; 43 books, table, posters, wooden frames with passepartouts, colored glass, aluminium frames
variable dimensions



At the centre of this work stands a table with 43 books containing all the results of a Google image search of potentates of the 20th century. The synopsis of all these free floating digital images which are suddenly frozen reveals a typification of gestures and poses of power which is normally unnoticeable because of the daily deluge of media images in our society. PlögerŐs library allows us to study the visual development of the representation of power through images within modern media ridden societies. (press release)
