American artist Liz Magic Laser’s (b. 1981) first solo show inGermany centers on her new work “Public Relations/Öffentlichkeitsarbeit”. Staged and produced in Münster, her video installation takes thestructure of a vox pop interview to stage a dialogue between the newsmedia and the public, embodied by a reporter and the proverbial“man on the street”, who is expected to give testimony for the public.By recasting this archetypical interview situation as a theatricaldialogue Laser not only lays bare the suggestive mechanisms at play but also speculates about a relation between news producers and recipients on equal terms.Additionally, earlier works will be shown both at Kunstverein and in two screenings at Cinema Münster. A catalogue will be published during the show.
