The artist and professor Will Benedict suggested a precise set of rules to the students of the European Art Ensemble Master for their exhibition at DOC!: to each produce a poster imitating and commenting on Internet meme culture. A collection of sculptures made by the students face the corpus of posters hanging on the wall.

‘In contrast to designers, artists have a more ambiguous relationship to efficiency. In design the primary condition of production is the client. But who does the artist work for and to what end? The collector? The audience? Humans? The market regulates the practical and emotional realities of this classic division rather poorly. The market does a lot rather poorly. 50 or 100 years ago artists, designers, performers, writers and poets attempted to breakdown some of the more arbitrary distinctions that hold a genre together. Today we cling to them in the midst of Brexit and Trump; Angela Merkel is our hero and the French have finally decided to take their flirtation with neoliberalism to the next level. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall.’

A utopia researching
times as clouds of 
rumors, for works
are complex words,
