Gerwald Rockenschaub (1952)
Six Animations, 2002

Video installation.
Sammlung DaimlerChrysler


Rockenschaub's video installation, created for the Sony Style Store in Berlin, translates the formal pictorial language of abstraction into colorful computer animations. In these simultaneously broadcast scenes, abstraction’s compositional elements are animated, detached from their original context and recreated as a mix of graphics and techno-music. Six Animations makes clear how heavily the reservoir of artistic images has been accessed by the mass media. In other words, the abstract and geometrical art of the 20th century has so permeated the worlds of fashion, graphics and design, that the public no longer identifies it as art.
