Points of Presence


Caspar Stracke's video installation consists of a continuous rotating wide screen image that is interweaving two cityscapes, juxtaposing idiosyncratic appearances from four locations while making connections between architecture and sociology of two non-related places. The impossibility to be in two places at the same time is the origin for an investigation on locality. How do objects, buildings people of two local sites relate to each other when uprooted from their context? On several sites, objects from New York, Mexico City, Berlin and Shanghai find their counterpart.
