Michael Geißler

Video - Ich sehe mich

“Mom, Mom, can you see me? I’m on TV!” With these ironic words, one of the protagonists in Geißler’s Video – Ich sehe mich emphasizes the performative potential of the medium. The individuals before the camera (Gerhard Walter performs a Aikido Zen exercise, Tabea Blumenschein presents herself as a sophisticated lady) use video as a medium of self-production. And Geißler, the founder of the group VAM, is an artist and producer, like Andy Warhol.
