Pamphile Show

A pictorial novel in pieces

 

Curated by Gunter Reski und Marcus Weber

 

Exhibition: June 20 – July 18, 2009

 

The Pamphile Show presents 31 international painters. The group show is like an open instructed collaborative work with a turn of superstructure. Starting point is the novel “Capitan Pamphile” by Alexandre Dumas published 1839. Especially the end of this book can be read as a current description about running economical crises and crashs that still are happening right now. A significant selection of particulary visual scenes in the novel should become traceable, so one might get parts of the storyline, even though this might be hardly possible. The multitude of different authorships here may induce a soft touch of `Gesamtkunstwerk´. Broken handmade literary film or trailer about the book are other keywords to describe the idea of this group show. In the last years narration or storytelling techniques had been one main focus in contemporary art. Here now the show tries to turn those singular spot-like narrative moments into an extended and collaborative format. Further on a term like ´pictorial novel´ (Charlotte Salomon, William Hogarth, Pushwagner) was essential for developing the Pamphile Show.
