The photo of a wound is – like a painting – a picture. Like a wound itself, it is also a trace. In this way, photography resembles the relic, the remnant, or the imprint, but it also opens itself to fiction. Bloody Pictures. From Image to Trace locates the medium itself in this field of tension. The philosopher and visual theorist Klaus Speidel has developed the show within the framework of the exhibition Zeig mir deine Wunde (Show Me Your Wound) at the Dom Museum. There, real relics, Christian art, photographs, sculptures and destroyed or repaired objects come together in an unusual way. Pictures and films by artists such as Renate Bertlmann, Andres Serrano or VALIE EXPORT encounter a piece of Christ’s Shroud, the flesh of ORLAN, an exploded bombsuit or the skin of a sick animal: the relationships between real and depicted trace, photography, fictionality and body, which have occupied art and sign theory for centuries, are simultaneously theoretically examined and made tangible.
