Käthe Kruse Danke! Die Tödliche Doris
Cooperation Galerie der Stadt Schwaz and KLANGSPUREN Schwaz

From 1982 to 1987, the artist Käthe Kruse was the drummer of Die Tödliche Doris, a conceptual musical band founded by Wolfgang Müller and Nikolaus Utermöhlen in 1979/1980 that also set foot into the fields of film, visual arts, literature, and performance. In the 1980s, Die Tödliche Doris was a leading element of the Non-Movement Geniale Dilletanten (sic!), which was influential not only in (West) Berlin but also way beyond. The subculture-festival of the same name that took place in the Tempodrom, a famous event venue in Berlin, in 1981, is considered one of the highlights of the alternative artistic scene of the 1980s. It was all about celebrating inability. Starting with the wrong spelling of the actual German word “Dilettantismus” it opposed the steady search for perfectionism. Die Tödliche Doris became a world-renowned performance and artistic group that was among other events invited to documenta 8 in Kassel, performed in the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art in New York and finally broke up as planned in 1987.

Stefan Sandner 

Opening Friday 10th November 2017 19h

What do you mean when you say painting? Stefan Sandner’s pictorial conception is rooted in the widely discussed critical analysis of discourses about painting as the key medium of modernity. He uses laconic notes and seemingly incidental everyday scribbles that are then enlarged to an oversized scale to humorously comment the pathos of painting.
