For documenta 7, Jack Goldstein has written an aphoristic catalog essay that begins with the statement "Media is sensational," which can be seen as a leitmotif for his paintings in particular. At the same time, in his reflections he also underlines the substitute function of media technology for his own experience. He writes: "Technology does everything for us so that we no longer have to function in terms of experience. We function in terms of esthetics." The closed cosmos of a medially constituted world can therefore only be countered with the means of art. His slogan "Art should be a trailer for the future" is to be understood in this sense.
