The exhibition at the Museum for Contemporary Art Leipzig shows a selection of the 472 Screen Tests which Andy Warhol produced between 1964 and 1966. These cinematic portraits show film stars, artists, authors, poets, well-known and forgotten personalities connected with Warhol’s studio, the Silver Factory.

The 25 selected Screen Tests are presented in a scenographic sequence that expresses architectonic qualities such as transparency and mirroring. Various zones emerge, related to visual connections, interaction and a possible change in existing perceptual patterns. The appearance and soundtrack of the exhibition and the accompanying programme examine the relationship between subject, image and identity, inviting visitors to reflect upon forms of staging oneself and being staged by others.

To develop a concept for the exhibition Julia Schäfer (curator), asked Heike Geißler (writer), Stefan Hurtig (artist) and us to be join up for a team. Beside Graphics for the show we were involved in the whole process of creating the exhibition.
