  • Catalogue Essay

    “The work of Johannes Kahrs frequently mixes cinema and life in order to generate a subversive critique against images and against our perception of a world that can be too easily altered by the manipulation of a few moments and frames. In Kahrs’ paintings, photographs, drawings, and video projections, cinema is returned to life, and it is placed on the border between representation and private memory, transgressing both contexts through an intense experience of violence or a subtle form of skepticism towards rhetoric of fiction.” (J.Fernandes, Flash Art, May/June, Milan, 2002)
