NYC0902 relates to the catastrophy of 09/11 and its consequences as an seemingly unending conflict between old and redundant views of life, as an ongoing war of the ones for power and capital and a war of the others for equal rights, freedom of belief and stable economics.

It was produced in the beginning of 2002 when the shock occuring from the destruction of the world trade center and all its implications was still vividly alive.  NYC0902 is based on the art book NYC9202 which was created by Alexandra Reill during her artist’s residency in NYC in 1992. NYC0902 is an adaptation of the piece produced then in form of a transfer into digital realms referring to actual sensual experiences relating to the state of life on this globe shortly after the catastrophy by constellating the imagery to a text excerpt from Tropic of Capricorn by Henry Miller.

Too many truths are still the same. The destruction of the World Trade Center and the media campaigns following it transformed everybody’s life. Daily life is not the same any more.

The artist cannot believe in warfare but definitely believes in the option of finding peaceful solutions and establishing equal rights for everybody and every culture.
