KP Brehmer working on “Realkapital – Produktion, Berlin,” 1974.
Centro Andaluz de
Arte Contemporáneo, Sevilla
31 March–12 June 2011
We are living in a time of an excess in exhibiting. Magazines, newspapers, stores, television and the Internet constitute and reiterate visual grammars directing our understanding of the world. Exhibitions are just a further component of the circuit. This excess in exhibiting is a living condition monitored by capitalism. The exhibition of projects of the German artist KP Brehmer (1938–1997) today leads us into a space of reflection: How do the visual systems of western societies affect the human being? What means do we have for making audible our disagreement without withdrawing our words and images?
