Dilettants, free from the constraints of professionalized art business, can afford to ask fundamental questions and demand radical answers. They are responsible for calling into doubt the rules and starting once and again to turn away from the codified and traditional ways. From Dada to punk, the dilettant was and is a central figure of every radical change.
The exhibition presents three artists from three generations in whose work and biography dilettantism plays a key role:
Timm Ulrichs (D), Wolfgang Müller (D/IS), Monochrom (Johannes Grenzfurthner, Evelyn Fürlinger, Frank Apunkt Schneider, Harald Homolka List, Franky Ablinger, all A).
