DIE NICHTSCHÖNEN: WORKS, 1967–1974
02 March 2021 00:00 - 06 June 2021 00:00
At once technoid and bodily, minimal and monstrous, often with spouts or hoses that resemble weirdly organic orifices and tentacles, the early sculptural works by Joachim Bandau (* 1936) remain as strange and singular today as when he first made them.
Accompanying the exhibition, a richly illustrated catalog with extensive historic material and several newly commissioned contributions by Joachim Bandau, Alexandra Bircken, Elena Filipovic, Martin Herbert, and Renate Wagner will be published in German and English.
