With an anonymous cast of 11 international artists and a curator, the group show "Anonymous: In the Future No One Will Be Famous" opens today, 31 October 2006, at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, embracing the flip side of Warhol's quip about 15 minutes of fame. In part a statement against the current over-inflated art market that spawns "artists as brands whose works have become masterpieces in ignorance of philosophy," the exhibit's layout also intentionally confuses the art objects with the everyday fixtures in the galleryâ€”Duchamp-style. Edited by anonymous and Max Hollein, the catalogue includes contributions from Dominic Eichler, Stephan Heidenreich, April Elizabeth Lamm, Eckhart Nickel and Hans Ulrich Obrist and is availiable from Schirn for â‚¬20.
