Biography

our practice was born of the frustration that we experienced at our inability to articulate coherently with others. 'What can be shown, cannot be said' Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889 - 1951) Kapspike & Goebbels insert familiar icons within incongruous situations, wherein the juxtaposition of beauty with cruelty and evil with the mundane can be exploited to challenge societal complacency. the Kapspike & Goebbels universe is a multimedia presentation. we collaborate with actors, photographers, performance artists and composers. once the principles of a project are established we offer guidance to ensure that its thematic integrity is maintained. however, each project ultimately reflects the aesthetic and artistic sensibilities of the collaborators involved. 'Art is a confession' Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)
