The Fall, the group around singer Mark E. Smith, was never an art-rock band but nevertheless influenced more than a generation of artists.

Paintwork#3 is a unique collection of artists who are so divers that they normally would never exhibit together. Their only link in this exhibition is The Fall-Gruppe.

These artists

- made artwork for the album covers and live shows

- made explicit reference in their work to The Fall

- were inspired by both The Fall´s music and attitude

- use the band as a code or cultural phenomenon

The Fall as a morphic field.

Very different artists understand this music and attitude.
The uncompromising code that changed so many lifes. Repetition, Repetition, Repetition.

Opening: 30.10.09

The Fall will play on the 5th November in the club „uebel und gefährlich“ in Hamburg.
