Opening June 7th Artists Space will present Living with Pop. A Reproduction of Capitalist Realism. The exhibition includes Manfred Kuttner, Konrad Lueg, Sigmar Polke, and Gerhard Richter, with contributions by Christopher Williams. From the Artists Space website:
“Living with Pop. A Reproduction of Capitalist Realism documents the actions by Kuttner, Lueg, Polke and Richter that took place between 1963 and 1966 under the auspices of Capitalist Realism, and concludes with an account of the term’s strategic use by gallerist René Block in the late 1960s in Berlin. Further, sections of this exhibition are dedicated to the influence of Fluxus in the Rhineland as an important precursor to Capitalist Realism.”
On view through August 17th.
