Diango Hernandez: Socialist Nature
(50 items available)
In the mind of the Cuban-German artist Diango Hernandez, the bipolar global order of the Cold War is not yet a thing of the past. The defining conflict of the era that ended in 1989 continues to inspire his work. Hernandez charts a treacherous path along the fine line between utopia and reality. The book illustrates a more recent phase in Diango Hernandez's oeuvre in which his motifs and themes become more playful and accessible. Upon closer inspection, however, it is clear that his art is still animated by an urge to keep writing his subjective and critical counter-narrative against the master narrative of the Cuban revolution. With essays by Timotheus Vermeulen and Gerhard Obermuller and a text by the artist.
