exhibition "Baroque" is presented as a cultural model transferred
into the "Neo-Baroque": complexity, simulation, variation,
inconsistency, movement, inversion, metamorphosis ... and the wish to
make the reality much more beautiful than it really is are the themes.
The stereotypical perception of immigrants in Europe by Julian Rosefeldt
is an example for the theatrically Neo-Baroque presentation of a critical
statement about our society.
