Review

MMK Zollamt

Dolores Zinny /
Juan Maidagan
Das Abteil / Compartment

December 13, 2009 – February 21, 2010

Zinny/Maidagan’s artistic oeuvre stands out for its critical reflection on architecture as a mirror of the political, psychological and poetic character of a location and a culture. In recent years they have thus created specific architectural installations in any number of places around the globe, each of which drew the viewers into a special and psycho-emotional world. In the MMK ZOLLAMT exhibition, for the first time Zinny/Maidagan will be showcasing works that find an abstract form for clearly referencing the site and possess a strong streak of formal autonomy.

Angel Dust

February 20 – April 15, 2009

How do we know when the time has come to do the one and let the other be? Whom or what do we listen to when it comes to taking decisions? What voices insist that we listen to them? Which seek to influence us? What language does the Angel of Annunciation speak? And in what guise does he appear to us? Why do we not hear those calling in the desert and why does the sermon of someone like Zarathustra fall on deaf ears? Many are the calls. And:»He who has ears, let him hear!« (Matthew, 13,9)
