Stefan Strumbel - WTF Is Heimat Book
Achtung: Letzte verfügbare Teile!
In his prints, objects, and installations, Stefan Strumbel (b. 1979) overdraws the features of cultural products and cult objects from his native Black Forest by adding stylistic elements from Street and Pop art.
He places cuckoo clocks, wooden masks worn during the local Carnival celebrations, or crucifixes in new and sometimes provocative contexts. For instance, he will supplant original elements of the cuckoo clock with motifs associated with violence, pornography, and death.
The critical engagement with the idea of the “homeland” is a central theme in Strumbel’s art. “Home” must here be read as a metaphor for experiences of socialization and the cornerstone of personal identity—an identity that, in a globalized and increasingly digital world, takes on an anachronistic aspect.
