Voices III was created during an artist-in-residence stay of the artist duo in South Africa in 2008: six poets, wrapped in wool blankets, talk about life in the townships, formulating questions about the social and political situation in South Africa.Daniel Glaser and Magdalena Kunz have been working together in the fine arts since the beginning of the year 2000. Their projects are installations: cinematographic sculptures and Talking Heads, large-format photographic and kinematic pictures, drawings and objects in space. Cinematographic sculptures are created by means of video projections and resemble human figures (Talking Heads). Glaser/Kunz combine sculpture, video, projections and experiment with a variety of materials.The kinematic picture is a digital image projected onto a panel; it unfolds in time, changing imperceptibly. Viewers note the changes though the transition is elusive. Glaser/Kunz explore social and individual issues, in particular philosophical questions, social conditions, visions and dreams.
