Frankfurter Kunstverein will present the first great institutional exhibition of Belgian/Algerian artist Eric van Hove in Germany.
The exhibition will include a selection of his most central works, in addition to some pieces especially developed for the show at Frankfurter Kunstverein. In his sculptures, films and long-term projects Eric van Hove merges Conceptual Art, socio-political research, activism and approaches to alternative economy. Central to his work is the investigation of the transformation of economic processes, and the dualities between global economy and local production as well as of manufacture and industrial fabrication.
Speaking at the opening will be the artist Eric van Hove himself, Franziska Nori (director of Frankfurter Kunstverein) and Dr. Helmut Müller (Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain).
The exhibition is supported by Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain, BHF-BANK-Stiftung, Nordisk Büro.
