"Through which framing do we perceive images? How does their reception change depending on editorial decisions? How comprehensively is our perception of global events influenced by their media treatment? Which contextualization comes closest to what is actually happening? Can there be objective coverage?" The key to Jonas Höschl's artistic practice is raising questions like these—posed by art historian and photography theorist Mira Anneli Naß—rather than presenting answers. Based on his media-reflexive work, the artist gathers perspectives of numerous theorists, artists, and authors dealing with media-theoretical questions in our increasingly fragile present—making our social inflammations and injuries painfully tangible.
