Dierk Schmidt. Art catalog exhibition. Reina Sofía Museum. Madrid
The career of German artist Dierk Schmidt (Unna, 1965) has always been related to social, political and institutional critique. Schmidt makes use of the aesthetic and the visual to disrupt positivist and liner concepts of history with respect to the omissions and violence in colonial narratives — one of the core themes running through his work, along with a need for the restitution of plundered objects and the related international law — the manipulation of museum discourses and the contrived and dramatic state of televised politics.
