Doppeldenk is an art collective featuring Marcel Baer and Andreas Glauch. The name (Doublethink), comes from George Orwell’s foreboding vision of the future. The two artists hail from Leipzig, have known each other since the 90s club scene, and have worked together under the name Doppeldenk for around five years by now. Both are fans oft he graphic style oft he C64 and 80s era Amiga computers, as well as street art from 80s East Germany, where Stan Lathan’s film “Beat Street“ played an important role, as it was categorized by the government of the German Democratic Republic as a statement against the imperialistic system. By the way, “Beat Street“ was made in 1984, bringing the Doublethink circle to a close. Looking at the graphic works of these Leipzig boys, it is all too easy to see the elements mentioned above. “es everything is so colourful here“, hums Nina Hagen in your head, “until you take a second look“.
