Dennis Rudolph takes up an attitude of taboo breaking sometimes in his work. The taboo he then is aiming at is the perceived "political correctness" in the art-world which excludes any styles, forms and traditions, which were used by the Nazis or by those thought to have paved their way from its own historical consciousness and artistic consideration. So the first level of the "taboo breakting" takes place in relation to this reality in art world discourse. He inserts romantic, classicist, apocalyptic images together with modernist avantguarde topics such as representation of masses, the aesthetication of masses and inserts them back as current into the image production and consideration of the art world. This sometimes goes hand in hand with a provocative comportment that wants to reclaim for art and artist an avantguard position and disavow all immanent relations between libera democratic attitudes and artistic value. Rather he borrows from 192 avantguardist positions, from the left as well as from the right. With this he has peers in post soviet art.
