The Hidden Tracks

Alisa Kossak, Fay Nolan, Leifur Orrason, Andreas Rehmann, Sven Serkis, Sarah Veith, Florian Weber, Hannah Zelter

The non-representable, the invisible, the past and the supposedly obvious are the subject of The Hidden Tracks. In his project Die Akte (The File), Andreas Rehmann finds a new form for visualising the archives of the East German Ministry of State Security. In Reden ist Silber (Speech is Silver), Alise Kossok examines the history of her family and its origins. In Orte (Places), Sarah Veith documents public spaces in which people have committed suicide. Caves & Dogs, a book by Leifur Orrason, brings together Icelandic caves and Lithuanian watchdogs. In his work Rauschen (Noise), Florian Weber examines phenomena of perception: ‘Twilight, a condition between day and night, between the lucid and the unconscious, represents the particular ambivalence of our perception.’ The virtual social network as a mass gathering of people in connection with their own private spheres is the premise of a series of posed portraits in the work Visualization/Being Socialized by Sven Serkis. In Zwischenräume (Interstices), Hannah Zelter analyses locations that are used for various forms of psychotherapy, including talking therapies and Gestalt therapy.
