The reality experience (that no longer lends itself to a reliable structure) of a time that we are currently experiencing as a “crisis” – and which is also felt as a loss of a reality that we had taken for granted – highlights what has long been veiled by habit. Crises, dubiousness and uncertainty; fragility in many parts of society and in nature; the search for truth and reality, for our existence as individuals and together with others; ruptures and ambivalences and emptiness or isolation – these things are not new but have merely come more to the fore in the current situation, laying bare all weaknesses. In this context, Fabian Herkenhoener’s pictures read like reflective, often ironic comments on this state of affairs.
