100 years of DADA
To mark the 100th anniversary of the DADA movement, Hamburg’s White Trash Contemporary will be devoting a solo show to the absurd and comical world of the artist PRINZ, the last living Dadaist, who follows in the footsteps of Hugo Ball, Kurt Schwitters and Raoul Hausmann. Outside their booth, the Galerie Hengevoss-Dürkop will be presenting an ambitious performance by their artist Valentin van der Meulen, who will be using a large eraser to rework a photo-realistic charcoal drawing based on recent images from the media.
The Galerie Kronsbein from Munich will be showing a total of 47 internationally renowned works, such as “Girl with Balloon” by Banksy, whose works have long been in high demand on the art market.
