The outward manifestations of people’s yearnings and projections of reality are the focus of Robert F. Hammerstiel’s (Pottschach, AT, 1957) works. For the exhibition Forget Mozart! held as part of the Mozart celebrations in 2006, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg commissioned the artist to reflect on the composer’s less than unambiguous image through the lens of his media. In the video I want you to want me I, part of the extensive body of works Hammerstiel produced for the occasion, a tacky Mozart souvenir doll gyrates in its plastic packaging as the tune of Eine kleine Nachtmusik plays on a music box.
