Claus Boehmler: En vogue is in!
November 19 – December 19, 2009
From screen tower to flat screen – a installation.
Press release: “Claus Boehmler’s current exhibition “en vogue ist in!” opens at 8 p.m. on November 19, 2009 in the Galerie Renate Kammer. From 1974 to 2005, Claus Boehmler taught at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg, thus shaping an entire generation of artists.

The artist asks: Can this language game, like the nonsense in the Kōans of the Zen masters, trigger a flash of inspiration?
