In his group of videographies „wildwechsel“ - a German word which describes the movement of animals in nature - Matthias Fritsch shows us well-known motifs from images of police in the daily press during the 2007 G8 conference in Heiligendamm, Germany. The decontextualisation of those images remind us of animal and landscape photography. The titles and arrangements of unusual places don’t show the normal space of representation of state power and provide the viewer with a sense of irony.
