Artist Talk mit Lisl Ponger

Dancing on Thin Ice

“Inspired by the figure of the controversial French art publicist and later Minister of Culture André Malraux (1901-1976), who was instrumental in promoting the universalization of the European concept of art and propagated the existence of a “world art,” it shows a supposed museum curator unpacking a collection of colonial art treasures. Triumphantly prancing he symbolizes Eurocentrism and the anthropological self-superelevation that is still anchored in the structures of European cultural institutions today.” (Frederike Sperling, Lisl Ponger, Dancing on Thin Ice)
