For the occasion of the first anniversary of the Kunstraum Niederösterreich [Lower Austria Art Space] the Berlin art critic and curator Raimar Stange has been collating a very compact exhibition on the phenomenon of “language and text” in the visual arts. In the process, thematic complexes such as “politics” and “theory of signs”, “text and sound” or “text and architecture” have been juxtaposed, always presenting two positions. The artists, who all live in Berlin, were quite deliberately chosen to reflect three different generations.

What characterises all of the artists in the present exhibition is, as it were, a neo-conceptual approach to their work, with language being inscribed as a significant aesthetical element, not least for its critical focus on political topics such as the dismantling of the social welfare state and the aggressive nature of US imperialism – as well as, of course, the mundane world of everyday Pop.

Curated by: Raimar Stange, Berlin
