At the center of Sonia Leimer’s works is the topic of the relationship between staged (mise-en-scène) and imaginary cultures. Within this topic, architecture will be examined as an effect of the medial constitution of current societies and their narratives. The artistic intervention of Sonia Leimer’s work is expressed as the re-staging of events and as the fictionalization of spaces and their social and ideological configuration. In her project for Manifesta 7, Sonia Leimer treats the train station as a stage set for a fictitious film, and then follows the medial capability of the ensuing sense of place. Memories of a “film set” of a fictitious film, organized in the public spaces of the train station, thus lead the perception of the place into an indissoluble entanglement of current and virtual space.
