Pictures and Non-Pictures//Project Art. An Introduction to Project Art
“I do not see myself as a political artist at all. On the contrary, I am interested in what art is currently doing, what types of material are available to artists.“ Faulhaber’s statement is initially disconcerting and does not seem to tie in with the themes and keywords found in his projects, which constantly deal with politically charged content. Although he has broken away from the traditional concept of work and is now concerned more with performance, he fulfils one of the most important objectives of art: he holds up a mirror to society in his work. In his publications, he uses existing images and information, collecting and recombining them to specifically evoke a sense of confusion – which itself becomes a political act. This collection documents Faulhaber’s most important campaigns and outlines the current links between project art and visual culture.
