enough is enough
A project by Petra GERSCHNER in cooperation with Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen
Enough impositions – enough of the barely tolerable. It is time to question radically those stereotype iterations in politics and the media asserting that a social reality of exclusion and exploitation, that the logics of utilization, the given patriarchal and racist power relations and wars are unavoidable and simply fateful.
The project enough is enough intervenes by means of short statements in the privatized public space. On large-format LED video walls in the cities of Innsbruck and Wörgl, the project sets visual impulses and confident assertions against apparently incontrovertible norms. In this way enough is enough aims at visualizing contradictions, the constructedness of the “self-evident”, and the development of potentials for solidary change.

Petra Gerschner is an artist, filmmaker and curator living in Munich. The artist uses her photographic projects, video works and installations in public space to investigate the constructions of cultural, post-colonial and identity attribution as well as power relations that generate social inclusion and exclusion. The artist often responds to existing image constructs with her own staged presentations, visualising the methods and strategies of such systems and developing artistic forms and practices of intervention into contemporary social processes.
In 2013/14 she was Visual Arts Fellow at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen.
