Maria von Kohler




Maria von Köhler focuses on mechanisms of hero worship, propaganda and their ongoing relationships with political, religious and or cultural iconography. Her current work takes cues from a collage of culturally laden trinkets, ranging from Baroque bronzes, to Bobs Big Boy, to jolly-looking racist paraphernalia from the Deep South. The span of influences is wide but linked by a sense of retrospective unease according to contemporary tastes.
