The short-lived postwar German movement Capitalist Realism is revisited in this peculiar exhibition at Artists Space (following last year’s showing in the movement’s birthplace at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf). Documenting the activities of members Manfred Kuttner, Konrad Lueg, Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke, the show consists of photos depicting the group’s 1960s installations and other ephemera, as well as photographic reproductions of the works themselves. It’s well worth a look, especially in conjunction with a visit to Polke’s retrospective, currently at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (through Aug. 3rd).
