Reinhard Mucha - Profile

(Profile only availible in german - translated by machine) In Reinhard Mucha's work history and autobiography are inextricably linked. The strong need for rehabilitation and reconstruction after 1945 supplanted important aspects of collective memory and history. Economic prosperity and the apparent rediscovery of a shameful past overlays a deep sense of alienation and the loss of both the father and also of the Fatherland. In "Auto Reverse" sets itself apart Mucha with this problem. shows on one side of the wall a large, back-lit black and white photography Mucha as a child with his scooter. Besides the monumental snapshot is a endlessly repeating black and white film with Roman, the son of the artist, projected. In his seat next to his father's bike, which leans on a railway bridge, the child constantly repeats the word "car. While pretending Muchas static image children an orderly world in which the size of the scooter of the child, the film's weakness and vulnerability by the size difference between the child and bicycle are suggested. The word 'car', the child repeated emphatically includes the desire for movement, speed and strength, but by the absent father can not be met. On the other side of the installation side by side, leaning on a projector stand two scooters, similar to the one in the photograph. On one of the two rollers, which can be seen as the Muchas, a red pennant with the arms of Düsseldorf is located, the city, was born in the Mucha and Joseph Beuys studied at the Art Academy. On the wall behind the stand, two Rondos hang from glass. One includes a mirror, the other a book page with the image of an industrial pipeline system of the factory is located in Mucha's studio today. (Text: Thomas Zandegiacomo Del Bel)
