In her series of drawings “Methods of Destruction” (2011), Jana Gunstheimer (born 1974, lives in Jena) pursues strategies of aesthetic transformation. Apparently scientifically she proves cases of ideologically motivated interventions in existing works of art, up to their complete destruction, as a special form of demonstration of power. There are plenty of real examples of such an attitude: the burning of books, the “degenerate art” under the Nazis, the destruction of the Buddha statues in Bamiyan, Afghanistan. Gunstheimer’s fictitious provenances make the joint viewing of past and contemporary works a principle. The 14 unique pieces are excerpts from Goya’s work “The Shooting of the Insurgents on 3 May 1808” and show the 14 shots with which the rebels were hit.
