Dalibor Martinis: Reality is an activity, not a static object.

In the series of performances in public-space ‚Data Recovery‘ I explore our relationships to certain possibly historical and strictly personal events and what remains of them in our memory or is lost in the process of compensatory imagination.

Wallace Stevens defined reality as an activity, not a static object. Jacques Ranciere chooses the present instead of historicization, the materiality of the process instead of interpretation.

As with the loss of data on the computer disk which can sometimes be retrieved only fragmentarily and dispersed outside the original context, my data recovery procedure is an attempt to recover pieces of action, events or situations which are lost in our social memory-loss.
