Imbisse drawings
The series of ink drawings titled “Imbisse” (Snacks, 2003) shows individual buildings, sometimes with the character of objects and in other cases with a futuristic or improvised look. Large billboards on their facades or roofs are emblazoned with words referring to “beans,” “Tomatoes,” “blaukraut” (red cabbage) or other staple foods, alluding to the possible function of the fantasy buildings as production sites or points of sale. Dorn explores here buildings typical of the cityscape whose undistinguished forms are often at odds with the products they advertise. The disproportionate emphasis of the product names reveals the absurdity of their marketing.
