Kurt Buchwald | Actions (1982 - 2009)
With the jump into the pictorial space I am leaving the place behind the camera and am starting with the action. This way, your own body comes into play. I have been working with the action, since 1980. I associate them with the problem of perception. I question the technical media ("Action TV-Set-Incineration", 1982). The image concealment begins with the action "Stehplätze-Störplätze", in 1984, on Alexanderplatz in East Berlin. The photographer stands between reality and his image. "No photography allowed!" starts in 1988 on the Red Square in Moscow and is carried out worldwide after the turn until 2005. In 1993, I founded the "Office for Disruption of Perception", which irritates the audience with fictitious orders and prohibitions. In 2003, the "tube people" come into the world and, in 2005, are founding, the tube party, W.A.R.U.M..
