Transformation and Recurrence

Reflections on Radical Nationalisms in Contemporary Art

In parallel with the continuity of extremist rightwing political ideas there is an afterlife of the repeated representation of fascism in art and an appropriation of its aesthetic set pieces in popular culture and (transgressive) subculture. This international group exhibition pulls together a great number of works that address this phenomenon, ranging from appropriation and “mimetic subversion” to the analytic contemplation, re-staging and deconstruction of fascistoid mechanisms.
