Isa Rosenberger, aus der Serie / from the series »Warszawska Nike / Warschauer Nike« [Warszawska Nike / Warsaw Nike], 2007

16 S/W-Fotografien / b/w photographs · je 45 x 30,5 cm each

 
In her filmic and photographic works Isa Rosenberger examines transformation processes in former eastern-bloc countries. Starting from specific sites – in an exchange with the population – the constructions of official historical writing, as well as its rejection, reinterpretation or overwriting through individual historical designs are revealed.

Until 1990 the »Warsaw Nike« stood on Theatre Square, initially »honouring the heroes of Warsaw 1939–1945«, then as a symbol of the communist regime. After its dismantling, the Nike was re-erected after public protests, but at a distant spot near the east-west motorway. Photographic views taken while walking around the monument are subtitled with comments of passers- by. The double changes of perspectives reflect the personal and social shifts of meaning. Different ideas of representation clash, take turns, are projected onto the figure. The role between artist and tourist is reflected by having a new level emerge through the connections and differences between spoken text, read text and photograph. On this level the missing synchronicities of a social condition, its simultaneous elements and multiple layers become evident.
