The series Overexposed shows gated communities of wealthy South Africans as hidden and allegedly secure places behind walls, electric fences and security systems. The focus is on gated communities as a manifestation of escapism and faked paradises which Daniel Müller Jansen fixed in pastel and faded colour photographs. The artist intends contradictions between the sugarcoated depictions and the subtextual political content. Müller Jansen plays with the issue of privacy, security and trust and creates variations of content and interpretation – works about rules and regulations – about elitism and identity formation – and about an emerging culture of fear.
