Korpys & Löffler, The Nuclear Football, 2004
In light of current events, the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum is showing a comprehensive solo exhibition by artist duo Korpys/Löffler, and presenting their complex, innuendo-rich work of the last 10 years. The focus will be on room installations with drawings, sculptures, videos and photos; several films will also be incorporated. For over 10 years the research work undertaken by Andree Korpys (born 1966) and Markus Löffler (born 1963) for their projects and films was conducted in social and political domains frequently characterized by special functions and security structures, or which are considered to be historical topographies with a special symbolism.The exhibition also examines issues related to defining one's own position. What means are open to art and artists today to participate in an historical discussion, which the media appears to have replaced? How are historical events coloured by the media's presentation of them? An information booklet is in preperation. On the ocasion of the finissage an extensive reader, published by Revolver-Verlag, Frankfurt a. M., will be presented.
