Montage, Metamorphosis, Masks

Montage, Metamorphosis, Masks: On the occasion of Wangechi Mutu’s exhibition My Dirty Little Heaven, which Mutu conceived as Deutsche Bank’s first ‘Artist of the Year’ at Deutsche Guggenheim, ArtMag presents international artistic positions that question identities and construct them in new ways.

Wangechi Mutu has transformed the Deutsche Guggenheim into a fascinating environment that involves all senses. The show’s curator Friedhelm Hütte, Global Head of Art, Deutsche Bank, introduces her work.

Her hyper-aesthetic collages quickly made Wangechi Mutu one of the most interesting figures on the young American scene. Matthew Evans met her in New York.

Disco Kid, Malcolm X, Angela Davis—photographer Samuel Fosso slips into a wide array of roles, tapping African cultural history for his store of props.

In the late sixties, Jürgen Klauke placed his own body at the center of his photographic work. The directness of his early series has a new relevance for a young generation of artists. An interview.

Paulina Olowska combines a wide variety of influences – references to modernist utopias encounter the autobiographical; Pop Art meets the visual residue of Warsaw Pact Socialism.

Rediscovered: The painter Uwe Lausen mixed radical social criticism with bold formal experimentation.

The dark side of light: Ivan Navarro’s politically charged Minimalism

Also at News, reviews, and ongoing updates.

ArtMag, Deutsche Bank’s online art magazine, has reported on the international art scene since 2002. In addition to articles on and interviews with artists whose work is included in the Deutsche Bank Collection and shown at Deutsche Guggenheim exhibitions, each edition is devoted to a special topical subject.
