Theatre of Transparency 2000-2010
Over the past five decades, Romberg has produced paintings, books, installations, films, and achitectural watercolors that explore the analysis, interpretation, ad representation of art and art history.
Theatre of Transparency features three videos produced by Argentine artist Osvaldo Romberg during the last few years. These works explore the history of transparency and its relation to painting and electronic media, and were at the center of recent installations by the artist in the Mirror Room of the Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum Joanneum in Graz, Austria (2008) and the museum balcony of the ZKM / Centre for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany (2009). They were projected alongside the protagonists of these narratives -- a series of humanoid dolls and puppets made of transparent acrylic.
