The Queens Museum, Queens, N.Y. hosted Peter Schumann and his works: drawings, books, machines, sculpture, murals, philosophical diagrams,installations and performance lecture, Nov 9, 2013 to Mar 30, 2014. He staged a monthly solo Fiddle Performance in the papier-mache chapel housed in the larger installation and baked bread in a temporary site built brick oven. Surrounded by friends and fans we followed him on a tour of some of the work and poetry in the exhibit as he stopped to point out the significance of several pieces. At root he challenges our assumptions and our compliance with authority and propriety in service of repression. He ridicules the cultural archetypes of Capital. A book of the exhibit is in production. Supruli, a Georgian Choir performed music as part of the event.
Peter Schumann was born in Silesia, Germany in 1934. He survived both the Nazis and Americans. His work creates a critical dystopian world within and parallel to the world in which we live; between good and evil.
