The universe of Cady Noland (exhibition in MMK1 until 31.3.19) is American, full of violence hidden in objects influencing people's mind. Collages of daily objects sterotyped US-American like flags, pistols, holster, NYC tax cards, sheriffs badges, beer cans.
Susanne Pfeffer's aim to score a coup with this first show is obvious. During months of cleaning and renovating the museum she prepared in absolute secrecy the resurrection of an artist who tried to prevent any exhibition of her works over nearly the last 2 decades. Old stuff is shown. She had the finger on the pulse- in the 80s and 90s. .
In nearly empty rooms the collages and art works of the 1980/90 s are levanted to highest museumization. Even the chance to confront it with actual positions of structural violence was left unexploited. Instead one of her dear peers, Steven Parrino, is co-presented.
Few objects guarded by wardens against few lonely visitors who at least can enjoy the great architecture of Hans Hollein and dream of a wild youth they and Cady Noland hopefully had.
