RIDICULOUSLY YOURS | BUNDESKUNSTHALLE BONN
Ridiculously Yours!, collective exhibition on going at the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn is a very serious but also decidedly ridicules collection of contemporary art which doesn’t shy away from embarrassing the viewer. The exhibition includes 100 artists from all over the work, spanning from the earlier centuries to the immediate present and it is on view until the 10th of April.
Ridiculously Yours! flirts with the humour of catastrophe, bad taste, the camp approach, B-movie culture, science fiction and horror, but also with immaturity, idiocy, intuition and, of course, passion – not to mention enthusiasm.
An inspiring amusement park of enthusiastic awkwardness with works by numerous important artists: from Pieter Bruegel the Elder to Alfred Jarry and James Ensor, Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia, George Grosz and René Magritte, Giorgio de Chirico and Sturtevant, Sigmar Polke and Martin Kippenberger, to numerous contemporary positions of contemporary art such as Paul McCarthy, Nicole Eisenman, Fischli & Weiss, Isa Genzken, Pauline Curnier-Jardin, Kiluanji Kia Henda or Ming Wong.
