The Alt-Right Complex – On Right-Wing Populism Online
HMKV (Hartware MedienKunstVerein) at the Dortmunder U, Dortmund,
Opening: Friday, 29 March 2019, 7:00 p.m.
Duration: 30 March – 22 September 2019
The international group exhibition deals with forms of right-wing
populism, which, especially today, use the Internet and „social
media“ to disseminate ideas. "The Alt-Right Complex" traces
the development from a (sub)culture of transgression in online
forums such as 4chan to platforms such as Breitbart News. The artists
deal with memes (e.g. Pepe the Frog, probably the most famous symbol
of the Trump followers), with figures such as Steve Bannon, flag
worship, the prepper scene, White Supremacists and Dark
Enlightenment. The exhibition is accompanied by a critical glossary
that briefly explains the most important terms.

"The Alt-Right Complex" presents twelve projects by 16 artists from
twelve countries: Germany, France, Great Britain, Canada, New
Zealand, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland,
Serbia and Slovakia.

Participating artists: Paula Bulling / Anne König (DE), Simon Denny
(NZ), DISNOVATION.ORG (FR/PL), Vera Drebusch & Florian Egermann
