GENERAL IDEA "MONDO CANE" SCREEN PRINT
General Idea formed in 1967 and is an important post-modern trio of artists. Two of the members, Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal died of AIDS in 1994. Its surviving member, AA Bronson, continues to practice as an independent artist and oversees the representation and exhibition of General Idea’s work internationally.
The poodle is one of the defining icons in General Idea’s oeuvre, signifying a multitude of meanings. While General Idea had used the poodle motif since the early 1970’s, in this series it becomes graphic, stylized, and vaguely robotic.
In the recent General Idea retrospective at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, one of the most striking sections was devoted to “sexuality”. The room was surrounded with the canvases from the “Mondo Cane” series. Above is a furtive photo of the remarkable installation in Paris.
