REVIEW
Bullshit? Think again, Boris Lurie at the Dorn Gallery
in: Stuttgarter Zeitung Nr. 190 vom 19. August 1999

Exhibition opening as performance: The organizers Eckhard Holzboog and Klaus Fabricius show collages, prints and the book of poems by the artist Boris Lurie as part of the series "Art-Act". And the vernissage demonstrates rather the attempt of an exhibition than to show a curatorial concept. Where a specially invited art expert calls the artist's works smearings that anyone could fabricate, the opening ultimately turns into an act of sabotage against itself.

Boris Lurie, an emigrated Russian-German, emigrated to New York after his liberation from the Buchenwald concentration camp in 1946, where he co-founded the NO!art movement: anti-capitalist, angry rejectionist art that resisted the harmony of the American way of life with attacks. Lurie's collages, created since the late 1950s, feature pin-ups that seductively entice. Straight from the illustrated magazine, Lurie pasted countless beauties onto canvas. The snotty, glued magazine pages are painted over with swastikas or contrasted with photographs from concentration camps.

These works, which would have provided material for a debate on the possibilities of political and biographical art, can, however, only be seen in the catalog on display, which was produced on the occasion of the first Lurie retrospective in Berlin in 1995. It is a compendium of NO!art artists and is worth the visit alone. -val
