From Mythological Demigod to Mass Phenomenon
Beate Ermacora & Maren Welsch (Eds.)
Taking as its starting point the myth of Narcissus, who fell in love with his own reflection and pined away because he couldn’t possess his beloved, this catalog for an international group exhibition includes a smart curatorial mix of international artists. Featured are Barbara Bloom, Felix Burger, Luis Camnitzer, Niklas Goldbach, Conny Habbel, Katja Hammerle, Ely Kim, Jürgen Klauke, Urs Lüthi, Bjørn Melhus, John Miller, Olaf Nicolai, Helmut Schober, Johanna Smiatek, Wainer Vaccari and historical works by Gyula Benczúr, Felix Nussbaum, Johann Heinrich Schönfeld plus more. The diverse selection of art works is not concerned merely with self-experience and self-recognition, with clichés and male behavioral models, but also with the social changes regarding the blurring of gender roles and the acceptance of the glorification of the masculine physique, thus illuminating our current social circumstances. Texts by Julia Brennacher, Lotte Dinse, Beate Ermacora, Jürgen Tabor and others.
