Gambit – Erró, Chronicler of Current Affairs open till 22:00
In the exhibition Gambit, you can see how the artist Erró (b. 1932) has continuously documented the turmoil of his own time. He draws rulers, tyrants and warlords into his visual world where they face ridicule, mockery and parody.
In his works, Erró looks at world history with a critical eye. By mixing together different and contradictory image fragments, he dissolves the traditional narrative, twists the rhetoric of spindoctors and undermines the society of the spectacle. Glorified propaganda is equated with offensive stereotypes and the notion of hierarchy is turned on its head. The world reflected in Erró’s work is a combustible mixture of chaos and contradictions, excess and violence.
