A central topic within the work of Anna Witt is the everyday occurrence of the political; a circumstance that reflects itself also within medial translations and the according images regarding the conception of what constitutes the political. At the same time, it reflects itself within the experience of being almost completely powerless and excluded from this political discourse. The ambivalence of politics and this lack of power provide the coordinates for Witt’s artistic interventions. Initiating a debate with the local population, she looks for possible focal points within this ambivalence and performs the staging of participation in political development, against this general speechlessness. Due to the act of staging, the requisite distance can be maintained – it is only the image of policy that changes, as it must now face the concept of possible participation in political action.
