About

Galerie Wilma Tolksdorf presents the latest works by the artist Katharina Sieverding from the series SPIEGEL Boxes, 2013, Invitation Boxes, 2013, and Untitled, 2013, which were recently shown at the highly acclaimed exhibition KATHARINA SIEVERDING - WELTLINIE 1968-2013 at the Museum Schloss Moyland. The photographs of SPIEGEL Boxes, 2013, are captured from above and show cardboard boxes filled with Spiegel magazines, of which the upper two covers enter simultaneously into an antithetic and synthetic dialogue. Katharina Sieverding refers with this juxtaposition to media-transmitted images, which strikingly comment on global events and have long since become part of the collective memory. This not only questions the mechanisms of mass media vocabulary, or as the artist phrases it what is behind the propaganda of the present?"
