Pepe Jürgens / Shuichi Fukazawa, Chiho Hoshino, Armin Purkrabek / Timo Piatkowski / Domink Rinnhofer, Anne Niemetz, Claudia Westermann, Steffen Wolf, Andreas Siefert, Dorcas Müller, Michael Schmitt, Simone van gen Hassend, Angelika Lepper en Heike Böhnke

sHe’ll survive shows the work of fourteen young German media artists who come from the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe. The participating artists were selected by Uwe Laysiepen (Professor of Media Art) and Michael Saup (Professor of Digital Technology). Various aspects of new media are emphasized, critiqued or, on the contrary, complemented by the students.

Three installations will make use of an on-line connection with the Internet: Chico Hoshino’s Demontage Dataspace and Timo Piatkowski/Armin Purkrabek and Dominik Rinnhofer’s F1. Simone van gen Hassend shows her life-size Schlampis in Amsterdam. Two webcams are placed at different places in Amsterdam and come together in a desc-installation at Montevideo/TBA. In her installation Noise Ratio Anne Niemetz sculpturally and tonally reproduces the volume and movement of the viewer. Drop Shadow by Andreas Siefert disconnects the shadows from visitors as they come in. Pepe Jürgens/Shuichi Fukazawa surprise visitors to the exhibition with InSideOut by projecting them integrally in various ways by the entrance. In her work Dorcas Müller demonstrates, in a somewhat romantic manner, her function as donor for her blood hedgehog nursery. In doing so she also busies herself with the scientific side of these organisms. During the opening Ssp. Bonkey (Heike Böhnke) will present a performance in which she stigmatizes the female body and renders it reflectively. Steffen Wolf shows a series of photographic images and videos that are especially performative and probing. Light changes discreetly in Michael Schmitt’s minimalist light sculpture. Claudia Westermann, a student of architecture, installs an extremely reduced work based on her study of Gothic porticos.
