0.10 RELOADED. Avantgarde 2018: Afroamerican and African artists as role models of a new humanistic Avantgarde
Curated by Dr. Eva Karcher
„O.10“ refers to an exhibition in 1915 in St. Petersburg, where the Russian Suprematist Kazimir Malevich for the very first time showed his painting “The Black Square”, that then became the icon of the Avantgarde. Avantgarde in general can be described as a movement of resistance, a movement of a minority. Any avantgarde embodies a minority. The artists being presented in the show not only since many years significantly form contemporary esthetics, moreover they also represent a minority. As such they face more risks and are being exposed to more resentments and other negative impulses in general. These artists among others are in the center of contemporary art of today, because they mirror these existential experiences in their works in many different ways.

»His expression is beyond style and possesses tragic, almost abstract refinement«, writes André Butzer on painter, draftsman, and publisher Josef Zekoff who will show a selection of works on paper of the last five years in Munich.
Pastels, inks, and graphit drawings from 2013 until 2018 – seen with a keen eye and given with light-handed strokes.
Yet, his graceful ease has depth, abysses, and sentiment.
