“These fabric multiples are typical of Brätsch's interdisciplinary practice that critiques marketing techniques and image distribution within contemporary society. This line of multilayer knit pieces can be attached to items of clothing to promote the artist's creations, in a pastiche of the sandwich board. Decomposing advertising strategies from the inside, Brätsch's works reveal different design layers, to be unfolded one by one. The work is made in collaboration with DAS INSTITUT as a joint project with fellow artist Adéle Roeder.” -Fineartmultiple
