The Alt-Right Complex – On Right-Wing Populism Online

Dortmunder U | Ebene 3 | 03/30/2019 - 09/22/2019

Curated by Inke Arns (HMKV), the international group exhibition deals with forms of right-wing populism, which, especially today, use the Internet and „social media" to disseminate ideas. The Alt-Right Complex traces the development from a (sub)culture of transgression in online forums such as 4chan to platforms such as Breitbart News. The artists deal with memes (e.g. Pepe the Frog, probably the most famous symbol of the Trump followers), with figures such as Steve Bannon, flag worship, the prepper scene, White Supremacists and Dark Enlightenment. The exhibition is accompanied by a critical glossary with more than 30 entries that briefly explains the most important terms.

The Alt-Right Complex presents twelve projects by 16 artists from twelve countries: Germany, France, Great Britain, Canada, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, Serbia and Slovakia. A wide variety of artistic media can be seen in the exhibition: comics, wall paintings, videos, (video) installations, posters to take away, game instructions, net art, an artists' book, a speculative museum and a flag machine.

Participating artists: Paula Bulling / Anne König (DE), Simon Denny (NZ), DISNOVATION.ORG (FR/PL), Vera Drebusch & Florian Egermann (DE), Dominic Gagnon (CA), Szabolcs KissPál (HU), Boris Ondreička (SK), Milo Rau / IIPM – International Institute of Political Murder (CH/DE), Vanja Smiljanić (RS), Jonas Staal (NL), Nick Thurston (GB), UBERMORGEN (CH/AT)

The exhibition will feature various events - performances, artists' talks and a series of lectures ("The Kids Are Alt-Right"). All events under www.hmkv.de.

In May 2019, a bilingual magazine accompanying the exhibition was published, comprehensively documenting the exhibition in pictures and text. In addition to the curator's introduction and an interview with Angela Nagle, it contains descriptions of all works and the complete glossary (German/English, 128 pp., €5.00 at HMKV / €10.00 mail order).
