IKF Laas Abendroth

© Laas Abendroth

The first act by the multi-facetted provocateur was to redesign the logo of the Individual Support for Artists and Creative Minds and to publish it on his website. Laas Abendroth  is using the grant to fully concentrate on developing his artistic work – free from the curatorial, logistical and educational tasks that are often part of being an artist today. In recent years, Abendroth has been questioning value in art and the art market by focussing on mass, material and space. He wants to use the grant to examine value from the perspectives of home, movement and mobility and to investigate routine consumer behaviour according to the keywords of high and short-lived value. Alongside the new themes, the artist also wants to use new materials, experiments and social studies.
