˚360 by THOMAS SCHEIBITZ

032c Workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present ˚360 by THOMAS SCHEIBITZ, exhibiting his entire artistic vocabulary.

Scheibitz was born in Radeberg in 1968 and began painting and sculpting while studying at the Dresden Art Academy. Deploying several different media, Scheibitz places special emphasis on sourced material culled from the annals of 20th century Modernism, and harvested from the tricks and tropes of contemporary graphic novels to cut-out magazine spreads and, of course, print advertising. The result is a subtle visual familiarity that haunts his wholly original painted, sculpted, and drawn body of work. His recent solo exhibition, “ONE-Time Pad,” at Frankfurt am Main’s Museum für Moderne Kunst, was devoted solely to investigating the human figure, yet sought to recreate and to tease out new ways of visualizing the familiar form, using popular culture and historical design motifs for which the artist has become known.
Now extended in 032c Workshop’s vitrine, Scheibitz’ sharp lines, interlocking shapes, and penchant for the grid reveal the systematic manner in which the artist seeks to invigorate our relationship to classical compositions, symbols, and signs.

    An advertisement for the art gallery belonging to dealer and collector Bruno Bischofberger has occupied the back cover of every issue of Artforum since April 1987.

  • CROSS-DRESSING IN THE WEHRMACHT: Unseen Practices at the German Front

    While collecting amateur photography from periods during and after the war, Berlin-based visual artist Martin Dammann would, “from time to time,” stumble upon photographs of cross-dressing soldiers. Provoked, he began to seek out more, drawn to the “kaleidoscope of emotional states” that they revealed: “Desire for women. Desire for men. To be a woman. To be elsewhere. To be someone else.” More

    As a contemporary metaphor, flatness describes how the invention of the Internet has restructured global society. At its origin, its promise was a social revolution founded on intersectional equality and universal democracy. It is our contention that that promise may yet be fully realized.More
