Viel Feind, viel Ehr

Built from a collaborative project between the Peninsula Gallery and the nationalmuseum in Berlin, Viel Feind, viel Ehr is an exhibition of many artists including Jerry Blackman MFA’14. Named after musical group S.Y.P.H’s first album, the exhibition is inspired by the creative and spontaneous spirit of the punk band, who as described by the gallery:

…could neither play nor did they own any instruments. At the time, they frequented the ‘Ratinger Hof’ which was the regular haunt of bands like Charley’s Girls and Mittagspauze. “Yeah, we’re musicians too.” When pressed further, they blurted out titles:  “Zurück zum Beton” (Back to Concrete,) “Industriemädchen” (Industrial Girls,) and “Lachleute und Nettmenschen” (Laugh-people and Nice-people.)
