Adrian Ghenie: The Hooligans by Apsara Diquinzio (ed.)


SKU: 9781948701426 Categories: , ,


This book documents work by artist Adrian Ghenie (born 1977) included in his exhibition The Hooligans. Ghenie’s newest body of work continues his exploration of abstracting figures, layering shapes and gestural painting techniques to create complex images intertwined with art historical narratives.

“Ghenie’s meditation on the idea of hooliganism, examining the role of rebellion in the artistic process, is applied here towards an excavation of art history and European history.” Art Observed

Influenced by Impressionist painters, as well as Turner, Van Gogh and Gauguin, Ghenie’s meditation on the idea of “hooliganism” examines the role of rebellion in an artist’s process, working to reject or ignore traditionalism to create the new.

An art historical text by Apsara DiQuinzio traces the trajectory of Ghenie’s practice through to today. In her new text, Masha Tupitsyn discusses the concept of the double, looking at its history in philosophy, literature, film and art.
