About The Work

The prints are individually titled:

  1. Corncucopia: The Birth oft the Red, White and Blue
  2. Brute Shield
  3. The Honeymoon is over
  4. Passion ofer Reason
  5. Nine Lives
  6. Down the Drink
  7. Eyeyeye
  8. The Hand oft he Spirit of Miss General Idea

The work of General Idea always focused on the link between the making of art and its dissemination in the wider marketplace. Like test tubes, or magazines, their own names and identities were considered as empty forms to be filled with new contents. Not only does the work reflect on the idea of art allegorically, but further the conditions of art at a time when, as Frederic Jameson has argued „the cultural (...) is increasingly consumed throughout daily life itself.“ The depicted crest shaped symbols in Fear Management appear througout their work.
