The work Untitled (2016) by Sven Augustijnen is a photograph of a page of “Newsweek” from October 20, 1980. The article entitled The U.S. Role in the War concerns the war in the Persian Gulf.
The artist often works with magazines in a way similar to creating a storyboard of a movie. Through his editing – using selected pages from often a large number of issues of a magazine – he draws attention to aspects of history that remained invisible.
Augustijnen’s work can be summarised as subjective in the literal sense of the word. He walks the boundary between fiction and reality, distorts norms and is keen to break through clichéd roles and expectations.
