BE POLITICAL. BUY ART.
A web design- and social media concept was developed and implemented for a new project of the artist Franz Wassermann – including strategy, consulting, design and final set-up. All steps of the process were conducted in 1:1s between the artist and me.
With the art project #DailySocialTransfer, Franz Wassermann is reacting to the abundance of news that reaches us each day from all over the world. For more than one year he was buying a newspaper every day to then apply adhesive tape to the surface of images and text fragments of interest to me, so as to extract them from their original contexts. He rearranged these fragments on drawing paper, creating a collage. These art pieces are being dated, signed and labeled with a special embossing: the hashtag DailySocialTransfer. In this way, daily a unique work of art is produced that critically responds to many of the news items published around the globe.
