Florian Pumhösl + Warchavchik



Programm 2006. 16mm colour film installation with optical sound, 7' 49". Courtesy of the Galerie Daniel Buchholz, Cologne.
In his film installation "Programm" (Program, 2006), Florian Pumhösl engages with a specific site and its filmic representation; Pumhösl, however, attempts to unravel the particular historical moment to which a modernist building, the Casa Modernista, is owed and to “attain” an image saturated with meaning, “to reconstruct it, to contextualize and to preserve it” (Pumhösl). In this work, created in 2006 for the Bienal de São Paulo and on view in Austria for the first time, the artist moreover examines the current repositioning of non-western avant-gardes.
