The Alt-Right Complex – On Right-Wing Populism Online
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.
