The rapid urbanization along with the spread of new technologies and multimedia features have created a new scope of artistic interest in landscape over the recent years. Juxtaposing virtual nature and organic simulation, or just immersing into urban jungles, artists are using themes and methods to extend the traditional view of landscape. Romantic landscapes reemerge as movable battlefield sceneries of popular computer games while real urban landscapes can be captured as 'augmented reality'. The multiple layers of fully mediatized megacities start to correspond with artificial recreation areas; natural landscapes are becoming protected while airports and malls are designed with classical landscape patterns. The exhibition 'synthetical landscapes' showed three different artistic positions addressing the subject of landscapes, each one by a different approach: The Spanish photography artist Joan Fontcuberta is using a sophisticated 'open source' software that was originally created by American military laboratories to turn topographic maps into hyperrealistic landscape views. Fontcuberta is using the technology as an artistic tool to generate images of unseen territories based on existing photographs, paintings and drawings of different cultural sources. The German artist Nikolaus von Wolff takes travel photographs as a source for appropriative visual compositions. Adopting the artistic technique of the 'ecrire automatique' he decodes the simple photographs to re-reflect the significance of the explored environment in generative landscapes. In his series 'Memory City' the Chinese photographer Sun Ji re-arranges images of already demolished urban buildings. By this he creates mashups of already historic urban sites which turn into fictional city landscapes.
