Norbert Bisky
“D I S I N F O T A I N M E N T” – SOLO EXHIBITION

G2 Kunsthalle, Dittrichring 13, Leipzig, Germany
From June 4 to September 26, 2021
 

Norbert Bisky’s first exhibition in Leipzig, where he was born, combines earlier works from the holdings of the Hildebrang Collection with a new painting cycle and an expansive installation inspired by the altered conditions of communication in the pandemic age. The title refers to G2 Kunsthalle’s architectural history –it was meant to a host municipal data processing center. The show turns the spotlight on the use of data and information in a world ruled by digital technology. In the recent work “Trollfarmer” (2021), Bisky grapples with “doom-scrolling”, in which people compulsively search the web for fear-inducing images and information, and explores the ways in which such new cultural practices serve the interests of unseen actors.
