Andy Hope 1930


Formerly known as Andreas Hofer, the artist adopted the name of Andy Hope 1930 in 2010. Hope associates the year 1930 with both the rise of the comic book to a mass medium, and the abandonment of suprematism and Russian constructivism, elements which have all played a significant role in his work.

Hope’s recent solo exhibitions include ‘FRIDAY IS TOO LATE’, Autocenter, Berlin, Germany (2015); ‘Prequel – Equal’, Vienna, Austria (2015); ‘UNappropriated Activities’, Hauser & Wirth Zürich (2015); When Dinosaurs Become Modernist’ at Inverleith House, Edinburgh, Scotland (2012); ‘Medley Tour by Andy Hope 1930′ at Kestnergesellschaft, Hanover, Germany, where he first exhibited the ‘Medleys’, a precursor to the ‘X-Medleys’ (2012); ‘Detour – Landscape in Progress II’, Kunsthistorisches Museum and CAC Contemporary Art Club at Theseustempel, Vienna, Austria (2011); ‘Robin Dostoyevsky by Andy Hope 1930′, CAC Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, Malaga, Spain (2011); ‘Andy Hope 1930 at the Freud’, Freud Museum, London, England (2010); ‘Andy Hope 1930′, Sammlung Goetz, Munich, Germany (2009); ‘air tsu dni oui se lavy’, Hauser & Wirth London (2009); and ‘White Space Black’, Oldenburger Kunstverein, Oldenburg, Germany.
