Florian Pumhösl (*1971 in Vienna, lives and works there) constructs new referential systems, based on the mediation of avant-gardes graphic, painterly and architectonic tropes. His 16mm films and animations assimilate techniques and motifs of early scientific and abstract experimental filmmaking to constitute original reflections on the cinematic apparatus and its implications. Minimal glass paintings, which reproduce basic geometrical shapes, and films are woven together on an equal level with historical elements in considered exhibition displays. Pumhösl focuses particularly on strategies of appropriation, citation and montage and the research of European, Russian and Japanese art and architecture avant-gardes as the aesthetic equivalent to the mechanization of industrial production.
