This exhibition is part of a larger showcasing in Carlsberg Byens Galleri og Kunstsalon. There are in total 6 exhibition and one filmfestival. You can find links to the other exhibitions at the end of this paragraph.

In this exhibition Clemens Ascher continues to critically explore different methods of societal control. From Capitalism and Advertising via Patriotism and nationalism to Religion – generated ideas like fears, hopes or desires are implanted into people’s minds, in oder to control them.

Such controlling structures uses strong symbols to represent their belief systems, which is therefor also the starting point of Ascher’s Works. In his photography he recreates similar symbols representing and satirizing these manipulative methods. Ascher continues to construct a parallel world, in which these topics occur in a heightened form and as multi allusive. Just as the portrait, this parallel world is entirely constructed – through photo realistic collage. The people function like interchangeable marionettes playing on a theatrical stage. Formally the large format works appear nearly painterly, graphically reduced and with pleasing colors. Just like tempting candies in the shop window.

Opening hours: Mon-Fri, 10-16 / Sat-Sun, 10-15
