About the product

The central focus of Max Schaffer’s work lies in recording the details and textures of public space, and exploring the institutional realities and laws governing their presentation and reception. His oeuvre is multifaceted, transcending formal categorisation. His project „Power of Style“, specially created for the GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst, is no exception. Here, he presents an eclectic overall picture made up of multiple strands, comparing and contrasting approaches and focusing on the relationships between work, institution, urban space, reception and interpretation.

Through his consistent use of coalescence and displacement, Schaffer asks questions about expectations, mechanisms of perception and the role of the spectator. Through his consistent use of coalescence and displacement, Schaffer asks questions about expectations, mechanisms of perception and the role of the spectator. In „Power of Style“, he plays on these questions in manifold ways.

The publication accompanies the exhibition.
