STEFAN BANZ – ANGELS OF THE CHAMP (Les Anges du champion, Die Engel des Meisters): The exhibition shows 92 portraits (on 85 canvases) of important personalities who, over the last hundred years, have contributed significantly to securing Duchamp’s place of honor in 20th and 21st century art. But Banz is not primarily celebrating Marcel Duchamp, but rather takes a surprising and colorful look at this eternally incomplete, comprehensive entity and at the always subjective mechanisms of art as an operating system. And because he does this with vast knowledge, irrepressible joy, and a penchant for mischievousness, this portrait series becomes a unique exhibition experience, both cerebral and retinal. DIENSTGEBÄUDE, Art Space, Zurich, Mai 17 to June 30, 2019. Press Release in English | Pressetext auf Deutsch
