Before the Revolution traces a development in Torsten Lauschmann’s recent practice considering his work in the context of expanded cinema. Motivated by curiosity he works with a broad spectrum of mediums both new and obsolete which encompass sculpture, video projection, animation, photography, music and performance. Diverse too are the contexts in which his work can be found, ranging from galleries to theatres; cinemas and the internet. What often unites this work is its constant transformation, deconstructing and reconfiguring it to further test the boundaries of its medium. Since 2000 Lauschmann has explored the sculptural qualities of video projection, often projecting found footage or animation onto elaborate geometric wall drawings and sculptural objects to create the illusion of three dimensionality.
