Whereas trademarks were easily recognizable in Nic Hess’s earlier works, in his installation for Haus der Kunst they serve as a kind of foil on which he makes his own individual marks. Here he deals with these "models" more freely than in the past and uses their wide range of meaning to his fullest advantage. MORE
