DUCKOMENTA MALMÖ opens Thursday and invites
to vernissage and panel disccussion
The Swedish comic art society Seriefrämjandet opens the
gates for the art exhibition Duckomenta in Malmö,
southern Sweden, on October 19. The exhibition includes
works by German artists Interducks, who since 1982 have
created an astounding number of pastiches of famous art
objects, seen from a Disney-inspired duck and mouse
perspective. With their interpretations of works from
Egyptian sculptures to modern art, created with great skill
and knowledge about the original techniques and
materials, the Interduck artists aim to challenge the
borders between »fine« and popular art. Bring your sense
of humor and experience an alternative journey through
the duckomented history of mankind.
The main events, in addition to the exhibition, are the
opening, Thursday Oct. 19, with several prominet guests
present, and a panel discussion on art and popular culture.
Lasse Åberg, Swedish artist and actor, famous for his
artistic interpretations of Mickey Mouse, will open the
exhibition in the company of Prof. Dr. Eckhart Bauer from
Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig, who in
the 1980s initiated the Duckomenta project. Also present
will be Rüdiger Stanko, one of the artists behind the
