Flaggen / flags, 2021, digital print on silk, 100 x 150 cm (unframed)

Flags were used outside of military or naval context only with the rise of the nationalist movements by the end of the 18th century. From that time on they serve as means of communication, representing a particular entity. Showing a certain flag implies to express one´s social affiliation to a group of a society. But there is a desire to show other contents in these times of closed private spaces and where the museums and other cultural spaces are closed, too. There is a deep desire to communicate intimately. We need contents on flags that are ambivalent as there are paintings to create a flow that fires people´s imagination.
