In the Bongout Showroom, Berlin, the work, having grown into a wall drawing, acquires a third dimension, with contemporary artists transforming their very names into sculpture, painting, drawing, serigraphy, collage, or video. Twenty international artists will give their answers to the two lonesome money cadavers mocking the tree: Ironic as Fabien Souche or Joep Van Liefland, poetic as Nicole Bianchet or Barbara Breitenfellner, or with a strike in the face as Manuel Ocampo, Stu Mead, or Assan Smati, the exhibition provides a bubbling contrast to the decorative art that the simultaneous art fair – Art Forum – will surely present.
