Revolutionary Middle-Class.
Photographs by A.C. Kupper.
PATRICK FREY, 2010. 120 pp., 60 black & white and color illustrations, 10x13¾".

Publisher's Description
A.C. Kupper collects pictures, both his own and those of others. There is an inexhaustible source of material available through the Internet, where private spheres are publicly accessible, and through the wealth of illustrations in books, printed matter and film, and the artist's own photographs. The new pictures that the artist creates from this convey a vision of mutation and a sense of gradual alienation. Kupper's laconic humor, the aesthetic compositions and the soft stroke reminiscent of painting, impart a more vivid picture and a less-promising future.

In Revolutionare Mittelklasse, the modern individual appears as a person with no identity, genderless and without a past. The disfigured faces seem eerie, their tragedy unintentionally funny and hollow. The gender attributes of men and women, physical and intellectual, multiply into a functionality that is geared toward efficiency. A.C. Kupper's imagery spreads the vision of a moronic society that has lost its humanness, its passion, and its sexual identity. A.C. Kupper's large-size photographs are aesthetic and carefully composed.

The artist uses cultural codes and striking symbols that have long been lost to the mainstream. The middle-class, as the norm, is the disturbing pessimistic vision of a future world without pain. The middle-class revolution is the affliction of a propagated normality that never existed.
