Born in Hanover in 1961, living in Vienna since 1984. Studied under Oswald Oberhuber at the University of Applied Art, but only for one week.

BEND IT An exhibition on the role of music in the work of Gilbert & George

Based on their obsession with the 1966 song Bend It by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich and the popular 1931 hit Underneath the Arches by Bud Flanagan, to which the two artists appeared as singing sculptures, Tex Rubinowitz developed a musical reference system in oil on wood.

On iconographic woodwormy votive tablets it is claimed that the two great artists would also be interested in Elvis Presley, Gustav Mahler, Madonna and the Sex Pistols. Here the wood plays the role of the unglamorous, of the shabby fan, and the worms play the part of the parasitic stalker who twists the image of his idols in the way he would like to see it.

As well as this, TEX RUBINOWITZ shows pictures by three other artists he has commissioned to portray GILBERT & GEORGE:

SUSANNE KLOBASSA, born in Düsseldorf in 1957, lives and works in Vienna. Trained as a cartoon film maker with Curt Linda in Munich. Attended the German Masters School for Fashion in Munich and the Hetzendorf Fashion School in Vienna. Has been a stylist and costume designer for stage, film and photo productions.

HARUKO MAEDA, born in Tokyo in 1983, lives and works in Linz. Took a degree in painting at the Nihon University in Tokyo. Since 2005, degree course in painting at the Linz University of Art.

MAX MÜLLER, born in Wolfsburg in 1963, musician (Mutter, Tödliche Doris, Die Ärzte, Camping Sex) and artist (Max Müller draws in the way he sings, with immediacy, raw, but for all his manginess a gentle urge for love and justice shines through his drawings…).

The following films by GILBERT & GEORGE will be shown:

Gordon's Makes Us Drunk, 1972
In the Bush, 1972
A Portrait of the Artists as Young Men, 1970
The Singing Sculpture, 1992
