German artist Astrid Klein's second solo show Sprüth Magers in Berlin and will showcase work produced in the 1980’s, alongside a new series of collages. The title of the exhibition is taken from a work of philosophy and Marxist critical theory by French philosopher and artist Guy Debord. Published in 1967, the text focuses on ideas surrounding the degradation of human life, mass media and commodity fetishism, and comparisons between the role of religion and mass media marketing. Debord's critical view on social functions, values and structures of behavior are frequently repeated themes in Astrid Klein's work. La Société du Spectacle will be on view until February 23, 2013 at Sprüth Magers, Oranienburger Straße 18
