Translated literally „exposed“ means „to make something visible“ or „uncovered“. In photography it means to subject photographic film to light. Exposed uses a short scene from a feature film - a man observes a dancing woman through a keyhole - as the raw material. Solely fragments of this tableau are visible to the viewer, and Fruhauf „re-exposes“ the scene by passing the perforations of a strip of film in front of the projector so that they resemble a moving sieve. Sight can no longer be taken for granted and therefore increases in fascination. (Maya McKechneay)
