  1. Fade Away Medley

    2021
    Fade Away Medley @ Exhibition Hall, Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg, 2020

    "Time disappears and leaves behind memories - of people, moments, melodies. "Fade Away Medley" is what Jonas Höschl calls his work, which revels in the thoughts and feelings of a generation. Carried by the soundtrack of his youth, Jonas Höschl tells in the photo book of scenes of debauchery and rebellion, but also of pausing and looking up. The hedonistic urge for extravagance and exaggeration is palpable in the full-page photographs, which are juxtaposed and enter into dialogues of content and form in direct succession. The transfiguring view of days gone by is broken up by sobering images of conservative lifestyles and world views. The oppressive conformity goes hand in hand with the longing for dissolution of boundaries, which Jonas Höschl also embodies himself in his photographs. He confronts the dialectic of his pictorial milieus in order to overcome them.", Carina Essl (LEONARDO – Zentrum für Kreativität und Innovation)

    And let my cry @ EIGEN + ART Lab, Berlin, 2022 // Exhibition view by Peter Wolff

    "This criticism of journalistic reporting is repeated in his most recent work, And let my cry (2022): it is the transcript of an (internal) recording the Bavarian Broadcasting Company made during the setup and rehearsal for the memorial service for the victims of the racist attack in Munich’s Olympia shopping center in 2016. (...) False reports led to panic in the city, and despite the perpetrator’s unambiguous statements in chat forums, authorities long pointed to his psychiatric treatment as a motive for a supposed killing spree.", Mira Anneli Naß

  4. Gropiusstadt – Ist alles Kacke hier!

    2021

    On the 7th of November 1962, the then Governing Mayor Willy Brandt ceremoniously laid the foundation stone for the first construction phase of the large housing estate „Berlin-Gropiusstadt“ in the presence of Walter Gropius. Almost 30 years later, the documentary „Gropiusstadt - Ist alles Kacke hier! (1990) by Eberhard Weißbart appeared, which deals with gang wars in the satellite town. At a similar time interval, the artist Jonas Höschl is now reacting to the documentary, using the Film as the basis for his work. In collaboration with the audio film author Petra Schielke and the narrator Christian Bergmann, he created a sound piece with the use of audio description. A sound framework freed from narration, consisting of descriptions of the protagonists and locations of the short film, which interrogates the visual material itself. The producer Philipp Dittmar (Red On) reacts to this with sound documents of the 1960s from Neukölln`s museum archive, which accompanied the building process and the inauguration of Gropiusstadt. The result is a melodious radio play between German officialese, the subcultural sounds of Berlin at the time of reunification and contemporary, experimental electronics.

    "It confronts the history and contemporary implications of Neukölln's Gropiusstadt, one of West Berlin's major urban development projects from the cold war era. Höschl's contribution is a counter-narratological soundstream consisting of two elements: audio descriptions created to represent the protagonists and locations of the documentary "Gropiusstadt - Ist alles Kacke hier!" (1990) by Eberhard Weißbarth, as well as materials retrieved from audio archives dating to the 1960s documenting the building process and the inauguration of Gropiusstadt.", Mohammad Salemy

    "Through which framing do we perceive images? How comprehensively is our perception of global events influenced by their media processing? Which contextualization comes closest to the actual events? Can there be reporting that objectively reflects this?"

    Raising questions like these - posed by art historian and photography theorist Mira Anneli Naß - rather than presenting answers, is at the core of Jonas Höschl's artistic practice. Based on his media-reflexive work, the artist gathers in Politics of Media Images numerous theorists, artists and authors who deal with media-theoretical questions in our increasingly fragile present time. The contributions make our social inflammations and injuries painfully tangible under a burning glass.

    2020

    Jackie. Or: Dogs I saw…

    I saw a trailer for a movie. A women touched the bottom part of her nose with two fingers. A dog reacted by raising his right paw.

    I saw multiple covers of children's books with illustrations of a dog and a little boy. The colours were saturated and shiny.

    I saw Konrad Adenauer with a dog in a photograph. The photographer explained during an interview, that the chancellor didn't want to be portrayed like this.

    I saw an advertisement for a hoodie on Instagram. It showed a cartoon dog with a burning candle on its head.

    I saw a prank video on YouTube. It was about a dog scaring pedestrians by being dressed up like a spider.

    I saw a frozen dog in a garbage bin behind glass in an exhibition.

    I read multiple times that the dog Jackie from the movie trailer must have really existed.

    2019

    "Manfred Weber (2019) consists of various samples from the commercials of 41 parties that contested the European elections in Germany in May 2019. The resulting mosaic of political diversity is dramatized musically; Falco's song "Europa" can be heard and the setting is based on Bavarian brass band music. Höschl examines the suggestive imagery of advertising agencies and makes clear how uniform the parties' self-representations are. The artist deconstructs the representations by breaking through the promising narratives with recordings of resistance and police violence.", HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark

    Das Wort Krise besteht im Chinesischen aus zwei Schriftzeichen @ EIGEN + ART Lab, Berlin, 2022 // Exhibition view by Peter Wolff

    The state feels like an expanding vacuum, like a journey from Earth to the planet Trillaphon. There are no points of connection to this space, which seems more airless, nutrient-poor, unsubstantial, crowded. There are planets on which nights feel like merging black holes, while one senses the collision of exoplanets 10000 light years away.

    "The photograph still promises to be a reflection of reality. But what does that mean? Color printing, on the other hand, with its overlays and clearly visible changes, is an artistic promise of distance from the real. But it is precisely in this combination of print and print, the two different media, that a reflection finally emerges on the subjective, individual attitude that determines the interpersonal as much as the relationship to an object.", Jochen Meister
