All possibility of understanding is rooted in the ability to say no. Strictly speaking one never understands anything from a photograph. Photography defines a large part of our daily being, influences our Self-Awareness and shapes our conception of the world, while Billboards are part of our public everyday world and usually represent the consumer culture of the society we live in. In the Spirit of Susan Sontag the exhibition 2 min ago seeks to challenge contemporary aesthetic consumerism and to examine our personal perception to enable a new discourse on how we reflect on the countless images we perceive on a daily basis. We therefore understand public Billboards as a complex site for art that is accessible for everyone and will be used to show artworks that challenge and reflect on Photography as an artistic medium in the context of digital age, social image and political content.
