Nadja Verena Marcin – The Great Dictator

For the solo exhibition "The Great Dictator", Nadja Verena Marcin re-enacts the The Great Dictator Speech (Los Angeles, 1940) by Charlie Chaplin, hence addresses the threatening rise of Neo-nationalism around the globe and the artist's influence potential in midst of a more politicized world. As religion has lost its place as an ethical path for many, art has ultimately risen to surrogate ethical shortfalls of late capitalism and its marks. As such, "The Great Dictator" is not only directed to a public audience but also to the art community itself.
