Text über den Künstler - English
Andreas Duscha, who frequently bases his works on found digital images that are often associated with specific places, historical events and political phenomena, aims to appropriate a claim’s facticity. He builds his works on the potential of possibility and the imagination, filtering episodes of events that could have happened that way; he does not try to prove, to evaluate or to bear witness; he deciphers, modifies, encodes and stages according to his own parameters, injecting subjectivity and singularity into the seemingly known, obvious and banal. In a process that is at once alienating and subjectivizing, he condenses the factual and the fictional into new levels of meaning, which he in turn transforms into works that are encoded in multiple layers using various — frequently anachronistic — techniques of photography and/or analog printing. With his at once aesthetically subtle and poetically abstracting pictorial language.
