“I took László Moholy-Nagy Mord auf den Schienen, 1925 and reused the circular spaces to accentuate the feeling of being a murder target, adding imagery of my own projects. I like to investigate how images are able to re-condition attitudes towards politics and morality. The shift of meaning from ‘Schienen’ towards “Screen” adds another layer of semantic ambiguity to it”. Andreas Agam
