Bernhard Buhmann: Modern Times

Carbon 12

15 Jan 201728 Feb 2017

Carbon 12 presents Bernhard Buhmann’s solo exhibition “Modern Times”. Referencing Charlie Chaplin’s film of the same name, the artist questions the effects of globalization and fragmentation on personal identities, responding to a shift from an illusionary homogenous society to the ubiquity of an extremely pluralistic society. Alongside four figures, Buhmann also presents six geometric abstract paintings: for the first time in his career, he worked concurrently on all ten of the works, resulting in connections between his figuration and abstraction.
