Abstract (English)

Conceived of as a "sequel" to "Space Invaders", the exhibition investigates the relationship between art and popular culture. Work by nine international artists is brought together with two essays, extensive interviews and artist's statements to develop various concepts of the self in Western thought and cultural production.
