Exhibition Statement: EiBrot, a tribute to all eggs on bread all over the world. 

The only thing that is important is the aesthetics, the colors, the proportions and the composition of the Egg Sandwich. Apart from that the Egg Sandwich will not change anything, it will not criticize anything and it want´s no discussion. In this project the egg is not a symbol of beginning life, the bread is not a symbol for the human being or man-made things or even a divine symbol, the eating of the Egg Sandwich is not a vanitas motif. It´s not erotic and it´s not political. An Egg Sandwich is a bread with an egg on it, a little piece of artwork, beautiful and delicious - and nothing else.

An international art exhibit presented by the Ontological Museum / International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Dada art movement.

In addition, the exhibition is also a tribute to Kurt Schwitters - an early proponent of Dada. Schwitters is recognized as a collage artist who early on used found object materials in his collages and dimensional "Merz" artworks. His work has had a major influence on many 20th/21st century artists, most notable being Robert Rauschenberg. 



"Dada was the first conceptual art movement where the focus of the artists was not on crafting aesthetically pleasing objects but on making works that often upended bourgeois sensibilities and that generated difficult questions about society, the role of the artist, and the purpose of art." 

"Dada artists are known for their use of readymade objects - everyday objects that could be bought and presented as art with little manipulation by the artist. The use of the readymade forced questions about artistic creativity and the very definition of art and its purpose in society."   theartstory.org
