Excerpt of Göran Greens text for the catalogue:

“In the 1990s, the art world exploded – in terms of both geographic reach and with the number of artistic techniques. The major art metropolises, with New York at the forefront, lost their dominance. Art went global. There was greater and closer collaboration between countries, institutions and artists.

Both the art world and the very concept of art have undergone a veritable revolution. It is probably difficult for a young artist today to grasp the situation before the implosion of the concept of art. Say “art” to a young would-be artist today, and you cannot be sure that the first idea that pops into his / her mind is painting or sculpture: He or she may just as easily be thinking of photography, video, installations or relational art of various kinds. Painting has become but one of many artistic techniques.”
