Peter Ernst Eiffe & Friends

Participating artists: Peter-Ernst Eiffe u.a.

Peter Ernst Eiffe & Friends relates the story of Peter Ernst Eiffe, regarded as Deutschland’s first graffiti artist, to key contemporary and historical works. By looking at documentation of Eiffe’s absurdist slogans and agit-prop activities in context with the works of contemporaries and younger artists, the exhibition asks how art can make use of its social and political pathologies today.
