“The compelling photographs of Max de Esteban’s series Propositions pose uncomfortable questions. In Heads Will Roll, part four of the series, the artist uses seductive photo combines made of film stills, flower photos, and fragments of text to convey the essence of the parameters that are penetrated by the contemporary patchwork of our lives. The media define everyday life: we are permanently made to feel insecure by the wars and disasters that are always happening in the world; the individual is in danger of drowning in the masses; genuine and fake have become almost indis­tinguishable; and a vague fear of the East pervades political policy. Reality is largely conveyed as a media experience.”
