Freedom & Independence at the Ebensperger Gallery

  

"John Bock, Jörg Buttgereit, Bonnie Camplin, Christeene, Lea Draeger, Tim Etchells, Heiner Franzen, Assaf Gruber, Yuki Jungesblut, Sandro Kopp, Bjørn Melhus, Otto Muehl, Hajnal Németh, Bruno Schleinstein et al.


The exhibition “Freedom & Independence” borrows its name from Bjørn Melhus’ eponymous film Freedom & Independence from 2014. It will use its title as both, a motto and a theme, while understanding ‘freedom’ and ‘independence’ as value and virtue. Being an ever evolving show works will be added to the exhibition over the course of its yet indefinite duration.

It is conceived with Mehlus’ film at its core: This experimental short questions the current global ideological paradigm shifts towards new forms of religious capitalism by confronting ideas and quotes of the self-proclaimed objectivist philosopher and novelist Ayn Rand with evangelical contents of US-American mainstream movies.

The exhibition will examine themes implied by the film and draw variations from other artists’ contributions. They will be juxtaposed with Freedom & Independence in and at its centre. The works will range from spacial to drawings, from photographs to paintings. The size of the premises allow extensive installations that might change over the course of the show's duration."

The gallery is open daily around the clock only by appointment.
