Constructio Infernalis (2004)
Disaster and violence are subjects Christoph Draeger has been exploring for the last decade. He has visited the aftermath of numerous disasters sites around the world such as plane crashes, explosions, terrorist attacks and crime scenes and researched them toughly. This obsession with destruction, its unpredictable nature and the voyeuristic fascination it inspires has resulted in various projects he has created. He lifts from new reels, home videos and Hollywood films splicing them together to recreate his own interpretation of the event. He plays with fiction and reality to evoke the emotional impact of these events.
