Manfred Schneider, Train your mental eraser, hippie; Livingstone Gallery, The Hague

At the moment German artist Manfred Schneider (1959) has an exhibition at Livingstone Gallery which shows quite recent and older works.

Schneider works in different disciplines and usually it deals with the discrepancies of the past and the present (and aren’t we all dealing with that?).

Schneider is fully aware that the present can only be understood and interpreted with knowledge of the past and he does so in a postmodern language which is not pretentious.

It makes for a show with very heterogeneous works with a sometimes dark kind of humour.
