Brehm's Praxis series is driven by a spirit of enterprise that is clearly palpable: Since 1974 Brehm has been sensuously modulating his private iconography in ever new variations, ceaselessly engaged with his ever growing image and sound archive, withdrawn into the interior of an infernal fantasy. There is no posturing behind his cool treatment of the disquieting signs in his work, but rather ennui, a loner life, solipsism.

Dietmar Brehm orchestrates implosions and idling states. He could be seen as the representative of a telephone-game art movement: His work is post avant-garde, post-narrative, post-surreal, post-pornographic and post-psychoanalytic; it appears like an extra entry in the annals of a long since shelved cultural history, like a last ditch effort of art after the end of time.

Dietmar Brehm, born (1947) in Linz. 1967-72 studied painting at the University of Fine Arts/Linz. Professor at the University of Fine Arts/Linz. Drawing + painting, experimental films and photography. Numerous filmscreenings and exhibitions at home and abroad. Various awards in Austria and abroad.

"The disc serves as a good introduction to Brehm’s later work, for those who are unfamiliar with him… the disc could serve as a satisfying video art installation in your home, a refreshing bath of aesthetic illumination to which you could return at odd moments throughout the day, when a short immersion in a few states of heightened awareness would be just the thing to wake you up and bring you back into your senses and into your body."
