En vie

 

“Everything becomes photographable, in any position, it doesn't cost anything anymore, and the images accumulate in the computers' memories. What interests me is to talk about this fluidity. I am starting a series of digital collages from this photographic material, trying to reproduce moments that have existed. I know they are just passages, equilibria that are constantly changing. The cutouts have both the solidity of a completed form and the fragility of an unlikely connection. Each is a simple transition point in the great becoming.”

TYPOGRAMME - Schreibmaschine

 

“The media artist Claus Böhmler was already “smart” when Steve Jobs was still working for Atari. Böhmler’s interests as an artist are not so much the development of algorithms as the practical use of typewriters, photocopiers, cassette recorders, record players, Super 8 films, cameras, radios, film or slide projectors, video, i.e. the media with which a maximum of art can be produced extremely economically and easily. Like drawing, painting, sculpture, graphics and performance, he uses them as a self-reflecting, intermedial, communicative invitation.”

Textem Verlag, Hamburg 2019, page 112 - 113

“These lines should be not just for pleasure; but impart too, a most important truth: a penny, deposited safely to account, is more worth than a thaler, well minted, upon which a person, with full desire, first cherishes hope.”

Pablo Schlumberger in: Pablo Schlumberger,
Ne, meine Braut ist die See, Hamburg, 2020, page 12

Odyssey – an Exile Collage

 

“We have lost our language and with it the naturalness of our reactions, the simplicity of our gestures and the relaxed expression of our feelings. [...] Our identity is changed so frequently that nobody can find out who we actually are. [...] and that means the collapse of our private world.”

Hannah Arendt, from: We Refugees , in: The Menorah Journal,
New York 31, 1943, Nr. 1, p. 69 – 77

“(…) Not by coincidence do Jan Albers’s works oscillate between Nelson Mandela and Ellsworth Kelly. It is precisely this unusual tension between political commitment and spiritual longing that makes his work fascinating and compelling. ”
