Mark Jenkins / Carlos Aires / Nikita Kadan
Posted by Gestalten—01/2014

On the occasion of Munich's anual security conference, the art organization Positive Propaganda has invited three prestigious artists to showcase their socially critical works.

Carlos Aires (Madrid), Mark Jenkins (Washington, D.C.), and Nikita Kadan (Kiev) position their works in the context of current political issues with regard to the present state of security. They criticize elite power, police brutality and torture as a political tool, and investigate the relation of war and capitalism. 50 Years of Hell can be visited from February 3 to March 28, doors will be open during the first week and upon request from February 8 on. Additionally, an artistic intervention by street artist Mark Jenkins is planned for the protest marched on February 1.

Positive Propaganda is a non-profit arts organization based in Munich and dedicated to the establishment of contemporary urban and sociopolitical art. They promote an ongoing dialogue with organizations such as Amnesty International and other NGOs, and invite renowned artists to realize large-scale art works that reclaim the public space.

50 Years of Hell Vernissage: Friday, January 31, 6–9PM, the artists are present. Please RSVP to rsvp@positive-propaganda.org.
