The IKOB – Museum of Contemporary Art in Eupen is located in the Germanspeaking part of Belgium, close to the German and the Dutch border. Its program focuses on emerging and leading contemporary art through the constitution of a significant collection (in progress) and temporary exhibitions (in dialogue). Functioning as a discursive platform for contemporary art with its multidisciplinary and thematic exhibition program and concerned with critical and socio-political issues, the ikob attempts to reflect the matter of the frontier.
Horst Keining’s new paintings appear as poetically informed views into the display windows of shops or boutiques and present thoughtful insights into the globalized visual culture of everyday life.
For their exhibition, MUSEUM OF VANITIES, Jerry Frantz – the notorious inventor of absurd persons and projects – and Sali Muller – the sensitive analyst of habits of vision and perception – have created a series of works of art that fearlessly respond to the work of the other artist, entirely in the sense of a culture of dissent. On display are current works by the two Luxembourgian artists many of which were developed specifically for this exhibition. With reference to this year’s theme at the IKOB – resentment – Jerry Frantz and Sali Muller focus on such concepts as terrorism, nationalism, selfishness and, ultimately, finiteness.
