Introduction Miriam Bettin
In the exhibition "docks", Moritz Krauth constructs a social model, represented in a video and in eight large-format digital collages.
A constellation, such as that found in the nuclear family as a social norm in Western societies, is brought into the focus of the visual event. The nuclear family becomes the friction surface of socialisation, representative of society. The questioned family status quo is ambivalently negotiated through the supposed absence of a member and the resulting fictitious expansion.
The installation of the artworks leads to the question of whether the person looking at them can possibly evoke this member or even take on his or her role.
