060409: Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf: Markus Dressler – French, music and washing extra

Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf: Markus Dressler – French, music and washing extra In the wide world of a quote “Postmodern” is a perfect description of Markus Dressler’s (born 1969) oeuvre. Quotes from comics, photos of graffiti, videos, installations, pictures, and drawings are positioned next to one another - with no conclusive connection. Classic literature quotes as well as pop culture are dealt with in a playful manner. A CD of Markus Dressler’s music project with his own graphical design is presented next to drawings of the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Frank Lloyd Wright, the Guggenheim architect, emerges a second time with his Fallingwater House, which he built in 1935 for the department store owner Edgar J. Kaufmann. Cats are depicted in most of his works. This seeming randomness develops an ease, which can be perceived as a virtue or as a flaw. After all, it is a question of interpretation if and how much sense one wants to see in this colourful universe, or if one is actually searching for any sense. Undoubtedly, he is a talented illustrator with a witty sense of humour, as his “Fallingwater Nose”, which reminds of Wright’s “Fallingwater House”, plays skilfully with quotes from art and everyday life. The drawing of the Guggenheim Museum is an amazingly reduced architectural sketch, displaying the overwhelming beauty of the building, as well as the artist’s style. In this world full of cross-references and quotes the visitor understands what could be meant by the term “postmodern”, and the multitude of the different motifs and techniques allows everyone to easily find something that appeals to him/her.
