Torsten Lauschmann

War of the Corners


This new solo commission of audio-visual and sculptural works by Glasgow-based Torsten Lauschmann takes its title from a war of words that broke out in 18th century Paris when an elitist French opera had to make way for a sudden wave of populist Italian opera.

At a time when populist and nationalist vocabularies have again re-surfaced, Lauschmann creates a series of ambitious new works which interact with and reframe referents and resources from high and low culture, thus drawing together abstraction, humour, politics and art.

Supported by Glasgow International, The Glasgow School of Art and Edinburgh College.
