Florian Haas. Historical cuts

Linolschnitt in schwarz und weiß der eine dystopische Kirmes zu Coronazeiten zeigt
Traditionally, art gives the largest formats to the theatricality of historical events. Focusing entirely on the recent past, Florian Haas (*1961) allows collective historical experiences to recur in his wall-sized panoramas printed from linoleum plates in evocative pictorial narratives. They are the result of intensive artistic research and a condensation of autobiographical observation as well as everyday and cultural phenomena. Their spectrum reflects the upheavals of recent years: commercialization and social injustice, rural structural change, species extinction, war and pandemic - their protagonists are often transformed into dancing skeletons that serve the triumph of death. Haas condenses his depictions in the form of illustrative quotations and ambiguous pictograms. Between allegory and ornamental design, his pictorial worlds also inspire action - against the absurdities of social ignorance and irresponsibility.
