Arwed Messmer: Reenactment MfS


In the archives of East Germany's Stasi secret police, there are countless photographs of failed escape attempts across the Berlin Wall. Here, German artist Arwed Messmer (born 1964) presents a complex collage of found, retouched and recontextualized visual records and Messmer's own photographs.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Joerg Colberg

Arwed Messmer re-worked East Germanyís Stasi (Ministry for State Security, officially known as MfS, colloquially known as Stasi) archives, going beyond the creepy or weird, and pointing at the outright evil (Iím not using this word lightly), while showing the role of photography: Reenactment MfS (Hatje Cantz 2014).
