“If Germany had been comunist, I would have been a photographer. But my adult Germany was National Socialist. And I, that I don’t have an ideology, I was there.”
From his childhood, Prohaska is fascinated by images. He will dedicate his life to them as a filmmaker, photographer, and painter. But Prohaska is a very singular artist, obsessed with disappearance and invisibility, a paradoxical man who does not keep a single image, but nevertheless seems to have seen everything. The attitude of this multidisciplinary artist to his work poses two uncomfortable questions: the first – if one can live without ideology; the second – is it possible to look with impunity?
This show proposes a vertiginous traveling in time and space, which exposes not only the entrails of the ferocious twentieth century, whose cruelty Prohaska persists in portraying but the complete map of human shame.
