Cosima von Bonin

terry cloth, cotton, flag poles 170x100cm 2016

This work was first exhibited in "Enough Romance. Let’s Fuck.", a group show curated by her in 2016 for a gallery in Vienna. She unashamedly abused two copies of a 2019 edition (towels with basketball patterns) of Nina Könnemann, that she had produced for a show at Portikus in Frankfurt. Cosima von Bonin modified them by having sewn “Enough Romance. Let’s Fuck.”, a quote from the black comedy movie "I Love You Phillip Morris" from 2009, starring Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey. The film’s plot is revolving around prison, homosexuality and Aids, in order to move from the sentimentalities of social relationships into action.
