‘Is History ok?’ questions the space and scale of the artist’s reality that appears to change since the Covid pandemic in 2020. In the context of the ongoing everyday with these new changes, in the work ‘Is History ok?’ samples are taken from the nasal cavities of artifacts in public space using common Corona test sticks. Videos document the respective action. Images are created that take the testing performance of being ‚positive‘ or ’negative‘ as a departure to transfer this situation with an experimental action to figures representing the historically and socially built and active order, domination, play, pleasure, joy, victory, loss and so on. The productions of this installation serve as encounter for the beholder that might find him or herself in a model of his or her own Form and Deform, Stability and Instability, Big and Small, Importance and Unimportance.
