Hysteria makes history

Paul De Vree


Drawing, 95 x 68 cm.
Materials: photo emulsion, canvas

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp / Collection Flemish Community (Inv. no. BK3959).

De Vree generally incorporates photographic material in his poesia visiva in the form of collages, occasionally accompanied by an ironic or satirical commentary, which is intended to address the viewer’s conscience and awareness by triggering a range of associations. In Hysteria makes history (1973), De Vree’s targets are the masses and idolatry in sport. De Vree here exposes the sensationalism with which the media manipulate facts and emotions.
