This statement impressed young Japanese artist Yoh Nagao, whose works will be featured in his first solo show in Europe. The question how honestly his collage-based works are made is left open. What is certain is that these images, including a fur-wearing Bic Mac, humorously reflect the current zeitgeist.

Tim Dinter, born in 1971, is both fascinated and suspicious of the precipitation with which the former east areas of Berlin are being reconstructed. Having moved to Berlin to study at the Kunsthochschule Weissensee, his first apartment was situated on the border between Wedding and Mitte (areas previously split by the wall) at which point he felt he had been transferred into a melancholy Wim Wenders film. Dinter’s works accordingly reflect a similar atmosphere to Wenders’ moving pictures and photographs.
