Obituary for Erasmus Schröter
Erasmus Schröter is dead. His departure is shocking and stunned. He has rubbed himself creatively on this world and has been humanly desperate over the last few years because of its development. His oeuvre is a great, multifaceted and exciting story without an end.
Erasmus Schröter was a master of juxtaposition and the absurd. The grandiose lighting of his bunkers as well as the Goth portraits of his “Contest” series compose the sublime / archaic and the fragile / absurd into weird two-chords. Again and again he went on excursions into the apparently familiar, the over-familiar that ended in unknown strangers. Let's wish him a good last trip and a safe arrival.
