“The unbearable humiliation of being middle class.” Amalia Ulman’s Monday Cartoons at Deborah Schamoni

, 31 July 2017

Amalia Ulman is presenting solo exhibition Monday Cartoons at Munich’s Deborah Schamoni, which opened July 21 and is running to August 9.

For her first solo show at the gallery, the LA-based artist presents nine of a series of drawings called Monday Cartoons consisting of template tones black, white and red. ‘Bob the Pigeon’ frequently crops up in Ulman’s work and social media, ‘waddling’ somewhere between Ulman’s “personal assistant, confidante, trainee and lover,” and is featured, with drawings from forthcoming book A Job is a Job is a Job

The exhibition also features an accompanying text by Ella Plevin, who contextualizes the work in relation to Ulman’s ongoing practice and interest in ‘Privilege,’ where she notes the artist is now examining “her own real aspirations and assumptions,” while shining light on “the unbearable humiliation of being middle class.”**

Amalia Ulman’s Monday Cartoons solo exhibition is on at Munich’s Deborah Schamoni, running July 21 to August 9, 2017.
