Tropenkoller

Taking the title Tropenkoller (Tropical Madness), German artist Lothar Hempel’s latest exhibition at Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London (Feb 27-Mar 21), incorporates a diverse range of media and imagery in order to interrogate certain constructs intrinsic to the genetic makeup of society: human interaction, morality, and prejudice.
