" In this exhibition artists from all over the world take referrence to some ground breaking artists of the past. An hommage to the spirit of innovation, non-conformity and alternative thinking of the older days.

Among the illustrators, designers, sculptors, painter, calligraphers, fashion designers and architects of the past millenia, new avant-gardes constantly emerge, establishing themselves to be replaced soon enough by the next generation craving innovation. A process of creation that naturally builds upon preceding aesthetics, concepts and techniques, that deconstructs them in order to create a contemporary art-remix. Many artists eschew this conscious connection to history.

Inspired by urban subcultures like graffiti, street art, graphic design, punk music or avantgarde fashion they developed a real passion, strong enough to work everyday by own motivation on the development of their techniques, artistic style and message. With this self taught attitude they found a unique position in the contemporary art world ".
