Beat the System! Provocation in Art


We would be delighted if you, your family and friends would join us for the opening of the exhibition!

The exhibition focusses on artistic positions that take a critical stand on politics, society and the art scene. It shows works by artists who interfere and take a stance. Their works impress with subversive power, strong political statements and the use of irony. The presentation emphasizes the analysis and relevance of actionst art today: Therefore, artists collectives have been asked to develeop new and innovative actions during the exhibition period.
