About Artist

Philip Topolovac (b. 1979, Würzburg) is a contemporary artist based in Berlin. In his sculptures, photographs and installations he scrutinizes the conditions of estrangement in contemporary society as a result of technological progress and historical developments.

About Artwork

Topolovac produced a heliogravure print in the style of architectural etchings reminiscent of baroque „vedutes“- i.e. views of famous Italian sites, produced for wealthy travelers on their „grand tour“, an educational trip, obligatory at the time. Topolovac depicted a contemporary and internationally known place of longing, the Berghain in Berlin. For many young travelers on their grand tour today, the Berghain is an arcane dream destination that is not reached by everyone. Its myth is based on its policy of opacity. It is prohibited to take pictures inside, and there is a certain difficulty to get past the bouncer. Inside its walls, the promise of excess is celebrated without restraint by a chosen few.

The print celebrates the iconic status of the famous club, by referencing the impressive architecture of antique temples in an old-fashioned technique which both promotes its fame and reflects on its temporality.

Each print is signed and numbered by the artist.
This print is only available framed.
