With the means of art Alex Hanimann explores different pictorial worlds. These can be political or private photographs from the 1970s, the time when the artist grew up, or images of animals that emerge from photo-traps set up in the forest. What happens when existing footage is taken out of its historical or functional context and presented as an autonomous work of art?
Alex Hanimann and Ludwig Seyfarth talk about forms of artistic appropriation of images and the complex relationship between humans and animals.
