interference of the image  (1998)

How does text influence the perception of images? Do we perceive the image first and then read the text or vice versa? Interference (on the image) deals with the problem of image-text combinations and tries to confuse the viewers. Are we looking for those things we think to know about the stated city after reading the text on the image or do we recognize the sight on the picture first and try to relate the text to the things seen?

The postcard seems to be very suitable for this piece as it is usually spreading visual stereotypes from all over the world around the globe.
