I swear, acrylic on hardboard, 410×280 cm, 2017
Exhibition View – Blumen am Arsch der Hölle, Shedhalle, Tübingen, Germany, 2017
Exhibition Text: ”If Modern Art development found a programmatic reference to the everyday and trivial with Pop Art, divergent subcultures and subversive forms of life developed this direction further in their artistic expression and changed it. Based on the idea of do-it-yourself (DIY), self-taught, punk, for example, encouraged artistic creation within its own standards between self-imposed restrictions and forced non-conformism. In constant confrontation with themselves and their environment, these artistic works elude a one-sided attribution.
The exhibition presents artists who have been socialized subculturally and thus provides insights into contemporary art forms that can be attributed to this heterogeneous area. ”
