Exhibition concept:
In pop and art

pop and art are more sought after than ever. Quotations in word, sound and image range from Abba to Dada. Pop music no longer is a reaction to reality, but to an image of reality processed by the mass media, to which it reacts itself in the ways of the mass media.
At the core of the artistic positions I chose is the question by which aesthetical strategies artists currently react to the processes of transformation from subversion to utopian ideal to counterculture to marketable art to filing in art history to recording in archives to the neutralization of signs – purely formal and without pity.
