Socio-critical Minimal Art

The Spanish conceptual artist Santiago Sierra has risen to international prominence with impressive—and at the same time controversial—actions and performances that level criticism at contemporary society. In his art, Serra regularly thematizes discrimination and the exploitation of human labor in the Capitalist system. In BlackPosters, a work that the artist has created in a number of cities since 2008, including in Basel in 2016, Serra establishes a powerful counterpoint to the advertising messages omnipresent in the public space, namely by installing black posters on a massive scale. Our Art Edition consists of 40 photographs documenting this action, together with an original black poster, in a hand-made cardboard box. The Art Edition is numbered and signed and comes with a certificate.
