Artists in this exhibition: William S. Burroughs, Charles Henri Ford, Ray Johnson, Arthur Russell, Phillipe Thomas



Rip It Up and Start Again
January 19 – February 20, 2010
Opening January 16, 6 - 8 pm


Rip It Up and Start Again was conceived by Stefan Kalmár as a dual exhibition—his last for Kunstverein München (Rip It Up) and as one of his incoming exhibitions (Start Again) for Artists Space, which Kalmár has been heading since July 2009.

The exhibition brings together works by William S. Burroughs, Charles Henri Ford, Ray Johnson, Arthur Russell and Phillipe Thomas (readymades belong to everyone®), each presented by another invited artist, acquaintance, friend, academic or/and admirer.

In the spirit of artistic strategies that could be characterized by the title of the exhibition Rip It Up and Start Again*, all of the exhibited artists worked with collages in the broadest sense: reconfiguring existing image worlds.

Rip It Up and Start Again focuses on five artists that also in their lifetimes were admired by artist peers, but have received only marginal recognition within the art historical discourse and amongst a younger generation of artists working today.

*(The title Rip It Up and Start Again was taken from a title of a book by Simon Reynolds who in turn took the title from a song by the Scottish post-punk band Orange Juice.)
