In their art, the adoption and obfuscation of mass-media representations and the complex study of norms which manifest themselves in verbal communicative forms develop a broad horizon for the critical reflection of current social questions of cultural and national belonging.

As such, the meaning of language, symbols and information communicated via the media as well as their connection to culturally encoded patterns of understanding are recurring motifs in their artistic work.The question of social, cultural and personal identity seems to rest primarily on the underlying parameters of subject formation. The difficulties in critically questioning the construction of both historical and current identities thus always makes reference to the backdrop of the referential context of subject and world and in so doing repeatedly points to the paradox of considering these two fields of reference singularly and in isolation. In this field, the interwoven image of identity, consisting of diverse cultural, psychological, social and historical structures and which is based on an unstable, repeatedly questioned image of the subject, always remains a variable that evolves through process.
