Exhibition text

Der Sonne jag’ ich heimlich einen Funken Des Feuers ab. Ihn birgt ein Zunderrohr. Fortan wird er die Quelle jeder Kunst*, Entdeckt den Menschen nie betretne Bahnen;

Aischylos: Prometheus in Fesseln, 472 v. Chr.

With the taming of fire, humanity fundamentally emancipated itself from nature for the first time. Fire warms, illuminates, cleans, destroys: it is the power of transformation per se. The campfire is the nucleus of society. Fire and all forms of combustion seem essential to our culture and survival. Fire is also the principle underlying almost all human processes: cooking, ceramics, power plants, steam engines, motors, turbines, steel furnaces, heaters, bombs and rockets. Fire seeks its way through nature and the balance of its processes. It leaves what we experience as a society and culture. Departing from there, we set off to explore this powerful element within and beyond our personal experiences and reflected our fascination for its ambiguent character through moving images.
