50 Years of Hell
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.
