In this exhibition the artists Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau celebrate their “comeback” to Art, telling the story about another strange 'project’ called: Snoop Morenga Dog Bonaparte Not Dead. Brody & Paetau are 'conceptual artists' and friends who used to make weird, provocative art. Their artistic strategy was often embarrassing in its literacy and straightforwardness. The criticality of their works could have been described as ‘homeopathic’ in the sense of ‘let like be cured by like’ (latin: Similia similibus curentur). Their 'art theory' seemed to be based on a misunderstood and distorted quotation of a couple of sentences from Adolf Hitler's 'Mein Kampf' (My Struggle): "When an artist tries to rebel against the iron logic of Power, he comes into conflict with principles to which he himself owes his existence as artist. And so his action against Power must lead to his own downfall. Of course, Power can be mocked for a certain time, but its’ revenge will not fail to appear."
