Julius von Bismarck, “Punishment I”, 2012
“Punishment I” consists of photographs, film and artefact showcasing the journey made by german artist von Bismarck in his quest ‘to whip nature’. The gesture is a pretext to express artist’s anxiety against socialization, while questioning at the same time the value of societal constructs and authorities.
For his solo show at Family Business, 520 W 21st Street, the artist went as far as to whip the Statue of Liberty in New York.
Opening tomorrow at 7PM as part of “These Peanuts are Bullets” organized by Le Dictateur.
