In “negatives“ propaganda imagery of „ISIS“ / „Daesh“ is taken and transferred to a smaller, comparably meaningless conflict. The aim of the work is trauma processing by confrontation with the existence and effectiveness of the image language, facing the visual elements that trigger the memory, and at the same time criticizing the unfiltered release of war propaganda by media as clickbait or to increase print runs, as well as the thoughtless viral spread in social networks. The title is inspired by Zbigniew Libera’s series “positives”, in which, among others, Eddie Adams’ photo of the execution of a member of the vietnamese National Liberation Front is restaged as a positive, peaceful motive.
