Düsseldorf-based media artist Mischa Kuball is among the few artists who has consistently understood light’s sociopolitical dimensions and used the media accordingly in numerous works and installations. In his new exhibition project Platon’s Mirror, two additional aspects are included: a perception-aesthetics component and the possibility of image generation through computer tomography. This gives rise to highly topical issues within art, and for it. Within the project light politics and media politics are renegotiated.
