Erik Steinbrecher Trilogy from left; Ital Thai Chinese and Paint, Möhren In Athen, Halli Galli

Erik Steinbrecher Zine Set contains:

Ital Thai Chinese and Paint, Erik Steinbrecher & Zuni Halpern

Ital Thai Chinese and Paint is a compilation of the first collaborative work by Zuni Halpern and Erik Steinbrecher. The booklet shows montages of photographs and paintings. All the photographed advertisings are collected in the streets. The paintings on paper are studio works. Both materials, views of fusion food and plates of abstract designs are melted. These “painted meals” can be considered as ornaments in the urban context of fast gastronomy and catering.

Möhren In Athen, Erik Steinbrecher

For his show Wind in Athens/Möhren in Athen Erik Steinbrecher left Berlin for Athens, his suitcase packed with carrots. The artist’s art odyssee began. His chosen site for an intervention was the National Archaeological Museum. During his visit in the collection Steinbrecher installed single carrots in the exposition spaces; close to sculptures and artfacts, on bases and behind walls. For this publication Steinbrecher overworked these documents making up the images with cancarrots.

Halli Galli, Erik Steinbrecher

After work artist Erik Steinbrecher every now and then takes a stroll around town. For this project he explored Zurich´s red-light district around Langstrasse with his camera in his pocket. He took photos of the advertising vitrines around the erotic-dance scene located there. A selection of these photographs of artistic dancers were then printed out and overworked by Steinbrecher.

Erik Steinbrecher left Berlin for Switzerland, his suitcase packed with 1000 supermarket bought meatballs and a pair of baguettes cast in aluminum, for his exhibition ‘Schluss mit Öko’ (An End to Eco), 27th October to 22nd December 2007. The setting: a barn and a meadow in the mountain region Amden am Walensee. A hundred years earlier, ‘Lebensreformer’ from Berlin had undertaken the same journey. Their destination in Amden was the Grappenhof Colony founded by businessman and prophet Josua Klein (1867-1945), who was raised in Meran, and had made his fortune in the United States. The founders of the vegetarian settlement Monte Verità at Lake Maggiore observed the activities at Walensee with keen interest. The belief that it lies within an individual’s power to withdraw from the consequences of historical processes through their negation, or at least suppression, formed the core of the settlers’ self-reflection, and was widespread throughout the Grappenhof. This, together with the firm belief that the germ for a new and better world lies in every micro-society, is described by American cultural critic Greil Marcus as the myth of freedom in his book Lipstick Traces. Elements of this narrative turn up in the Chiliasmus of the middle ages as much as in modern totalitarianism’s internalized beliefs for a world solution, or the avant-garde movements’ striving towards the absolute. This belief was also in effect later in the artistic circle of the Bern painter Otto Meyer Amden (1885-1933), who came to the village in 1912 together with artist friends such as Oskar Schlemmer and Willi Baumeister, and stayed in Amden until 1928.
