The Slovenian artist collective IRWIN is celebrating its 40th anniversary with an exhibition titled “Was ist Kunst, IRWIN?”. The exhibition delves into the black humour that is always present in IRWIN’s work, as well as how they use the questions of the State to comment on contemporary issues, such as migration. The exhibition will open on Friday, September 8th, 2023.
The exhibited works of art are in progress. They are finished but not completed. They remain open to new ideas, concepts and contributions. They are already transient by themselves, says their author Mr Matjaž Stopar. As long as they are in his possession, he reserves the right to change, adapt, discard and destroy them per a new concept.
