Agent hunting

The campaign against NGOs in Russia

The so-called "agents law" passed in 2012 has been ramped up since the revolution in Ukraine, making it practically impossible for NGOs receiving financial support from abroad to function. Whether it remains possible to advocate for democratic values in Russia depends on political decision-making both in Russia and the West. [ more ]

Stolen history (and other projects)

Together with A Prior Magazine the Eurozine Gallery presents four projects by Daniel Knorr. This, writes curator and critic Dieter Roelstraete, is an art "wholly woven into the bodily fabric of everyday life, of a relentless and vital physicality".

Stolen history



Public sculptures in Copenhagent are at the centre of this work, which took place in the first 24 hours of the U-Turn Quadrennial for Contemporary Art in 2008. In the morning of the opening day of the festival, monuments of historical personalities and modern representations of human figures were covered with balaclavas. In the evening and the following day, the sculptures and the monuments were "set free" by unveiling the covered heads.

View the project Stolen history.

The Antwerp six or seven



Seven scarecrows dressed in the clothes of the most renown fashion designers from Antwerp (the Antwerp 6). The scarecrows were on display on a city plaza as part of the Antwerp Sculpture Show in 2008.

View the project The Antwerp six or seven.

Nationalgalerie



The banners of 59 student fraternities in Berlin hanging from the roof of Mies van der Rohe's Neue Nationalgalerie.

View the project Nationalgalerie.

Carte de Artist



In the process of mapping the city, Knorr collected pieces of rubbish on the street. The material was then interleaved into the blank pages of books and pressed by a 200-ton press, embossing the objects into the paper itself.

Essay

Dieter Roelstraete

On the lack thereof

Daniel Knorr's bare necessities
Daniel Knorr's work can described as a conceptually inflicted practice of very immateraial ideas, writes Dieter Roelstraete. "His is an art predicated on the immediate experience of the irreducible materiality of all thought, on the crafty mining of those ideas that lie dormant in matter, clutter, stuff." [ more ]

About the artist

Daniel Knorr was born in 1968 in Bucharest, Romania. He currently lives in Berlin, Germany.
