Felix Droese came to international renown with the work he showed at documenta 7, his extensive 1982 installation titled Ich habe Anne Frank umgebracht (I killed Anne Frank). His contribution to the 1988 Venice Biennale, where he transformed the German Pavilion into a House of Weaponlessness, ran into considerable political controversy, even prior to the event, and brought him worldwide acclaim. This work complex consisting largely of paper-cuts was presented in 1989 at the MIT List Visual Arts Center in the USA. The 1992 paper-cut Reise ins Glück (Journey to happiness), the principal exhibit in our show, is an early reaction by the artist to the then increasing wave of global migration. His critical responses to international political issues have lost none of their topical acuity and challenge the viewer to adopt a stance and reflective engagement. The exhibition offers insight into Droese’s artistic work from 1970 to the present.
