After the spectacular popular success of the exhibition „Dre sden Paraphrases“ of GERT &\; UWE TOBIAS at the Kupferstichkabinett in D resden\, we consider ourselves very proud and grateful that Contemporary Fi ne Arts can take over the exhibition in our own space.
For the exhibit ion the artist brothers took on a particular challenge: from the extensive holdings of the museum\, they selected unique masterworks of graphic art fr om past centuries\, which they then interpreted and adapted from a contempo rary perspective. Gert and Uwe Tobias have created more than 40 popular wor ks of contemporary graphic art in comparison to the historical works of the exhibition\, bringing about the artistic dialogue that is the central appe al of the ‘Dresden Paraphrases’.
The artists have drawn from various s ources: from the precious mid-15th-century copper engravings by the Master of the Playing Cards\; from the expertly rendered Italian chiaroscuro woodc uts by Ugo da Carpi and Antonio Zanetti from the early 16th and 18th centur ies\; from the magnificent engraved patterns for the Dresden chinoiseries\, which date from the early 18th century and\, not least of all\, from the r evolutionarily monochrome panel work by Herman Glöckner from the early 1930 s.
The ‘Dresden Paraphrases’ by Gert and Uwe Tobias do not merely desc ribe a cultural transfer between historically ennobled masterworks and a cu rrent position in contemporary art. Instead\, they open our eyes to a perce ption of aesthetically parallel worlds that have lost nothing of their pres ence and their pictorial power. At the same time\, the panopticon of these works elicits the viewer to pose probing questions into cultural tolerance and outdated traditional values. The gaze that the exhibition facilitates – a gaze both forward and backward in time – confirms once again the traditi on of the worldrenowned Dresden Kupferstich-Kabinett as a wellspring of thi s kind of discourse.
