What do 100 stereos blasting “Oh my god,” Mos Def’s Beef, Taliban Bollywood and Boryana Rossa’s hysteria have in common? Group show “EN-GARDE II: omg” is about violence, fear and nostalgia. The crucifixion reenactment from exiled Russian artist Oleg Mavromati (who was electrocuted by the Internet) is on view alongside three versions of David Wojnarowicz’s censored A Fire in My Belly, appropriately.
All this is set to the “background of reemerging culture wars and the rising power of the far right,” from the Eastern Bloc to the Middle East to the States. “EN-GARDE II: omg,” Group Show, Jan 8 – Feb 5, Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, NYC
