Guardian.co.uk: “For Moll Morgengrau, it was not a happy day. The Berlin-based artist, whose name translates literally as ‘morning gloom’, had finally found a gallery willing to exhibit his poster art: Galerie Verrückt (‘crazy gallery’), in the southern Berlin district of Kreuzberg. But no sooner had it set up than the space announced it had become a ‘victim of the financial crisis’ and was closing down.
Morgengrau summed up his feelings in one of the grey-and-white posters unveiled at the exhibition opening – and gallery closing – earlier this month, at which guests drank cheap beer: ‘A toast to the financial crisis – now everyone feels what it’s like to be poor!’
But, Moll doesn’t exist. Neither does the gallery. Both have been invented for an exhibition and performance that is due to be staged at galleries across Europe by a group of Berlin-based Danish and German poster artists.”
