Horst Maria Blaschek

Familygame is a conceptual photo-intervention of staged realities. The private room, as a staging area in the discourse of reality and fiction, between private and public, is broken and rearranged. Under the motto “as if”, various family models are constructed, each of which responds to the existing space and its original inhabitants. The artist couple slips into the identities of the householder and directs the narrative based on gender roles, stereotypes and family models to question the perfect “surface” for the mirror of society.
