In addition to their individual work the three former students of the Academy of Visual Arts, Leipzig Lysann Buschbeck, Grit Hachmeister and Katrin Pohlmann develop already for seven years joint projects as artist group „VIP Venus in Panik“.
They deal with and analyse the contemporary reality, with a quiet striptease for instance, that answer to media created and intensified average phantasies, bodies and schemes of life with individual vulnerability. Between dealing with bodies, body parts, physical aggregat states and the outside of which we are members too, VIP occupy their space. (Arne Linde)
