About Andreas Duscha
Andreas Duscha, who frequently bases his works on found digital images, that are often associated with specific places, historical events and political phenomena, aims to appropriate the facticity of an assertion. He builds his works on the potential, possibility and imagination, filtering episodes of events that could have happened in a particular way. Duscha does not try to prove, evaluate or bear witness. Moreover, he deciphers, modifies, encodes and stages, according to his own parameters, injecting subjectivity and singularity into the seemingly known, obvious and banal.
In a process that is at once alienating and subjectivizing, the artist condenses the factual and the fictional into new levels of meaning, which he transforms into works that are encoded in multiple layers, using various – often anachronistic – techniques of photography and/or analog printing.
