Psychotektonische Prozesse: Black Out, 2013

The Daimler Art Collection has acquired a multimedia action space created by Georg Winter. This space has the property of initiating and instrumentalizing participation as an artistic process. This space of action and intervention is the means of setting in motion strategies of de-potentiation and de-escalation. By helmet for fighting exercises, a padded shield against aggressive behavior and the counterpart of the sword, the visitors can explore active forms of stimulus-reduction. Up-to-date monitoring technology allows visitors to explore active forms of irritation reduction. They can rest on the cushions, read books and focus their concentration on a large-format screen. This black screen does not convey any information – instead, it directs one’s attention toward one’s own state. As well as serving to reduce aggression, this experiment in behavior therapy reflects expectations and disappointments that we experience in relation to new media (in terms of the viewer’s physical attitude and location). Winter’s artistic projects demonstrate the formal and contentual potential of an expanded, processually oriented concept of sculpture that views action as a form of artwork.
