At once technoid and bodily, minimal and monstrous, often with spouts or hoses that resemble weirdly organic orifices and tentacles, the early sculptural works by Joachim Bandau (* 1936) remain as strange and singular today as when he first made them. An overview of the artist’s still relatively little-known sculptures and drawings from the period 1967–1974 will be on view.
