Aleksandra Mir

‘First woman on the moon’ (1999) by Aleksandra Mir.

Aleksandra Mir staged a moon landing on a Dutch beach, which she transformed into a moonscape for one day with the help of bulldozers. At sunset she climbed up on its highest peak, planted the American flag, opened a bottle of champagne and invited the audience to climb up and join her in the celebration.

‘Tropical Beach’ (2007) (found postcards) by Katerina Drzková.

Katerina Drzkova has been systematically collecting pairs of the same picture-postcards from the 1960s to the 1980s. These postcards are never identical. They usually differ in several details in the picture. In ‘Tropical Beach’ a time shift of several minutes is visible. On each postcard a different photographer is stated; the post offices and the times when the postcards were sent are also varying. The addressee is the same person.
