For: Embedded Art: Art in the Name of Security
Art and Poster: Omar Vulpinari
Exhibition held at the Akademie der Künste Berlin,
24 January - 22 March 2009
Curators Janneke Schönenbach e Olaf Arndt invited international artists to create work on the theme of “security” after 9/11. Along with the main exhibition there was a parallel poster-based initiative with six internationally reknown graphic artists (Jonathan Barnbrook, Neville Brody, Fons Hickmann, Gunter Rambow, Yuko Shimizu, Omar Vulpinari) that expaned the project into the city.
Vulpinari’s poster was inspired by Cerberum, the two headed dog at the gates of Dante's Inferno. The ambiguos guard dog reminds of the dual consequences of security and surveillance today.
Vulpinari contributed his “Cerberum” as a “brand symbol” to the robot art-project of Schönenbach, Vaupel e Arndt.
