© Hans-Christian Lotz The work of Hans-Christian Lotz addresses the supposed norms of everyday life. For all the familiarity of its elements and milieus – current technologies, information systems or generic objects – his installations are characterised by a calculated inaccessibility.
Lotz’s exhibition in Kunstverein Freiburg sketches the skeleton of a barren world of glass facades, fractals, ideologies and hallucinating source codes. At the centre of this is a video installation with an interactive mechanism, which is conversely employed to create an effect of concealment. Methods of encryption and abstraction become part of a reflexion on the specifically historical practice of exhibiting, and the possibility of its non-anthropocentric future. Consequently, the distance between the exhibited and the potential addressee is extended so far that the human observer is completely removed from this relationship.
