MIR HÄNDS NÖTIG 3.0 - GALLERY STARKART ZURICH
This time the exhibiting participants are ANONYMOUS. The names of the authors are not disclosed. This has advantages for artists and exhibition visitors alike. It offers artists a protected platform for experimenting incognito. As a viewer you are freed from premature classification. The work can speak for itself, but this does not in any way detract from the author's appreciation. The exhibition is democratized. Uniformity is to be replaced by equivalence, allowing visitors to re-evaluate the work.
Today most artists do not act anonymously, nor do they use a pseudonym as a name. So they are unprotected against malicious reviews or can be easily ridiculed. In other cases, they try to proctect themselves through their meticulously planned careers. Education / titles are used as tickets or excuses, as well as all the taxonomies that function as status symbols: names of the artists, the gallery, the buyer, the price of the artwork, etc. And their language ranges from cryptic to flat and slightly amused. Interesting in this context is Christian Saehrendt's article in the NZZ.
Daring to experiment or to take extreme positions can be a risky business for those who make a living from art. This has many nasty side effects for art ... The concept of MHN 3.0 is intended to stimulate creative mindsto experiment while under the protection of anonymity,allowing them to make more rigorous and epic statements.
* The prices for the works are neither written nor fixed. Interested parties can simply enter their work number, their contact and their offer in an opt-in form online in the gallery, or from home, and send it directly to the artist (Starkart is not involved). He/she can respond to this if they are interested - also anonymously.
Opening of the exhibition: March 15th from 6pm
