Provocation

Robert Rutoed participates in Provocation exhibition.
Provocation - presented by the New York Photo Festival - will be on show from from March 26 to April 17, 2011 at powerHouse Arena, Dumbo, Brooklyn, New York, USA.

Provocation is most frequently and mistakenly couched in negative terms applied to persons and behaviors that lack "normalcy."

In a world pervaded by power imbalances, those who belong to the power elite set the norms for the masses to follow — standards which serve to legitimize and enshrine their advantageous position in the body politic. The photographer-provocateur represents a challenge to such authority, and acts as a social critic, one who by his or her actions calls the legitimacy of convention and “normalcy” into account, and thus becomes a threat to the systems in power.

Less Is More

in New York

Die beiden Fotografen Klaus Pichler und Robert Rutöd nehmen an der vom renommierten New York Photo Festival (NYPH) organisierten Ausstellung "Provocation" teil. Klaus Pichler zeigt "Idyllen". Ein Werkzyklus, in dem er selbst in hüllenlosen Posen die biedere Glücksseligkeit einer Mittelstandsfamilie aus den 1960er Jahren stört. Robert Rutöd ist mit einem Bild aus seiner Serie "Less Is More" vertreten, auf dem ein beinamputierter Kriegsveteran mit den strammen Wadeln einer fidelen Blasmusikkapelle kontrastiert. Die Auswahl der Werke traf eine prominent besetzte Jury. Zu sehen ab 26. März 2011 in der powerHouse Arena, Brooklyn, New York. Mehr von Robert Rutöd und Klaus Pichler: www.rutoed.com, www.kpic.at
