Good pictures and good songs – once you have them in your head, they will stay with you throughout your whole life.

From November onwards we will rock it once more – with the works of our collection. Since the 1970’s we have been collecting contemporary art in Erlangen. Our focus lies on graphics, multiples, and artist books but there are also sculptures, installations, videos, and paintings.

The issues of history and respectively cultural history play an essential role in the work of Sol Calero (*1982 in Caracas, Venezuela), who moved to Berlin a couple of years ago after spending her childhood in Venezuela and studying art in Spain and Great Britain.

How does cultural representation and appropriation work, especially between Europe and Latin America? What is attributed by one culture to the other and what implications do these ascriptions have for art and society?

With her paintings, sculptures, and installations and in a very playful manner, a kind of tongue-in-cheek love for Caribbean colours Calero induces thought about cliché, ascription, and prejudice as well as gender roles and migration. She describes herself as “political without being explicitly political”.
