Tropical Punch - curated by keen on magazine
How aesthetic is protest really allowed to be? Rowdy slogans, deeply affecting photographs and videos – whether loud or quiet, contemporary art production is over-saturated with political statements. However, alongside zombie formalism, the motif of the tropical is once again being hyped. Whoever rights off fruit and plant motifs as merely decorative, kitsch or superficial may be mistaken. The tropical motif was rarely more political. The group exhibition „Tropical Punch“ in the Galerie Nathalie Halgand — curated by keen on magazine — shows works by Sol Calero, Conglomerate TV, Diango Hernández, Marc Horowitz, Signe Pierce & Ali Coates, Titania Seidl and Marianne Vlaschits.
