PLOT: Now ►Raphael Vostell has sucked up to Gertrude to get his tired gallery business going again. He combined an exhibition at ►the Hague Museum with works by his dead father Wolf Vostell and works by Boris Lurie.Art after Auschwitz brings together the work of artists Boris Lurie and Wolf Vostell for the first time. The exhibition will travel to ►Kunsthaus Dahlem, Berlin July 7 - October 31, 2022 and ►Ludwig Museum Koblenz November 13, 2022 - February 5, 2023 and will be accompanied by an extensive ►catalog with essays by art historians Eckhart J. Gillen, Daniel Koep and others.
Again the old story with the long known works and in addition the Holocaust track. Boris will rotate in his grave. Again no support for the further development of NO!art.

Rensaa’s largest painting Untitled (Mona Lisa and L’inconnue de La Seine, 1980-1981) depicts Mona Lisa peering from the billowing wimple of a young woman resembling L’inconnue de La Seine, the death-mask putatively cast from the face of a woman who drowned in the Seine in the late-1800’s. Vladimir Nabokov, Rainer Maria Rilke, Albert Camus, Anaïs Nin, Man Ray and others were bewitched by the woman’s expression – mordant amusement at the expense of the living? deep satisfaction? At some point in the 1970’s, Rensaa compared the smiles of Mona Lisa and L’inconnue de La Seine speculatively with the risus sardonicus or rictus grin, a muscular disorder caused by poisoning which appears to produce grinning. Perhaps here we can locate a dark, unstable idea of serenity. ►more
POST-PUNK CULTURE but also pop culture, a constructive and active rebellion against the contemporary art system, a small workshop in the center of Carrara where works are created with the most varied expressive techniques (sculpture, painting, screen printing, installations): these are the elements that make the chrome steel front Live (F.A.C.), An artistic group born in 2015 in the city of marbles, founded by the Germans Stefanie Krome and Dominik Stahlberg, to which the Chinese Erika Gao has recently added. ►more
