Angst vor dem eigenen PlanÜbungen zur Selbstkontrolle

In Uwe Krupka’s videos, the pressures of our media lifeworld become almost physically palpable. His remixes of visual material accompanied by a repetitive sound track are reminiscent of Paul Sharits’ flicker films. In Übungen zur Selbstkontrolle, shots of a deer in an apparently idyllic landscape, a monstrous child, a shooting in an Asian war are combined to a storm of stimulation from which there seems to be no escape. Krupka amplifies the flood of images towards the nightmarish.
