Touch Me captures scenes in dance courses, amusement parks and cruise ships in Sweden. In all these places people gather to dance to “dansbandsmusik” (Swedish for dance band music). 


Fabian Knecht


With his works, which often appear unexpectedly in public space, Fabian Knecht (*1980) breaks out of the exhibition context and into everyday life. He changes patterns of perception and action, transgresses art concepts and power structures, and questions social relations and norms by countering them with strong and provocative images. The large-format book Antibody, Knecht’s first monograph, includes works of the past ten years. A text by the art critic Raimar Stange provides an introduction to the works; a conversation between the philosopher Dehlia Hannah and the art historian and curator Nadim Samman as well as an poem by Lukas Töpfer open up numerous further perspectives on the artist’s multilayered work.
