Speaking about our populistically acting mass media environment and its influence on aspects of mediation in general the Austrian artist will present examples of his documentary photographic work and his interactive media projects within mass media systems. The meta-world of public representation where basic aspects of democracy or economy are transmitted by setting ideological standards seems to be irresistibly shifting over to un-balanced commercial contents or surveillance and propaganda, especially in moments of crisis, which does challenge the media systems (most important for the development of western democracies) in a principal way since its beginnings. Questions of media observation and of the public (media) space and its ownership and political implications will be linked to artistic concepts which try to research the “abstract” technological aspects and strategies of a media society and which do suggest also that formal abstract work is not necessarily a contradiction to political aspects in artistic practices.
