After the monograph on the Wir Kleinbürger! (We Petty Bourgeois!) series comes this detailed documentation of the Sigmar Polke exhibition in the Hamburger Kunsthalle, which was named 'exhibition of the year' in 2009. The ten-piece ensemble of large-format works on paper mark a turning point in the artist's oeuvre. The boundaries of good taste are transcended with provocative irony and acerbic wit. The three-part exhibition is based on the Wir Kleinbürger! series and includes work by Polke's contemporaries. 'Clique' is dedicated to the artistic exchange of the 1970s, 'Pop' to the way art and pop culture interacted during this period and the third part, 'Politics', is dedicated to political engagement in art. Over one hundred works from international museums and private collections have been brought together and show the varied and, as yet, largely disregarded strategies used in the 1970s, including photography, film and slide works, drawings, paintings, documentary material and sketches. English and German text.
