"We are surrounded by the de-radicalized revolutionary, graphical, iconographic and architectural schemes of the early 20th century, a period of great political, social and artistic activity which set itself the mission of changing the world. At the root of the period"s aesthetic sensibilities lay utopian hopes whose vestiges, in the form of the artifacts of modernist abstraction, still permeate our visual field, and still attempt to function as signs of advancement and progress, and thus of the future.
Tracing the afterlife of these hopes by repurposing their aesthetic devices and iconography are the projects of New York-based artist Anton Vidokle."
