Apparat. Retrogression through technological progress. is part of an exhibition series under the Nonsense Technologies concept. The artists Przemyslaw Jasielski and Rainer Prohaska present an unusual attitude to art and technology. In their approach the critical idea of how and why we use the newest technological designs is superior to pure fascination with the latest gadgetry. The question why should we design or make something is much more important than how we achieve it. The result of such a strategy is always the physical object available for the viewer in the real world created in opposition to finality, productivity, and effectivity, and including a serious dose of a sense of humor. It is also a constant experimentation and playing with the definition of sculpture in the context of technology and science.
