To the art of Günter Puller - Martina Wetzenkircher
A central concern of the artistic work of Günter Puller is the exploration of systems as they appear in the artistic, social and political environment. In various projects it is in the limelight of the artist to analyze the systemic bases and structures which happens in a sort of laboratory situation. Thereby the systems are taken apart and are transferred into a new context or new connections as well as into certain forms. Deliverables of these investigations in the special projects are - besides a series of artefacts which soever own a certain documentary character - first of all discursive art spaces where the audience is invited to discuss contentious issues posed by the artist or to interact in an unspectacular way.
In Günter Pullers interdisciplinary and process oriented method of working no concrete results or products are striven from the beginning. Also the choice of the media and techniques is quite flexible and is determined by the particular topics and also by the conditions of production whereas the last issue constitutes a basic approach for his work.
