ARTHUR RÖING BAER
Beast of Kandahar
New Art Club is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Arthur Röing Baer. This will be the gallery’s first solo exhibition with the Berlin based artist.
In the exhibited work Arthur Röing Baer explores the virtual and physical reconstructions of the RQ-170 UAV drone subsequently following its crash in Iran, December 4, 2011. The drone that is claimed to have been taken down by Iranian GPS-hacking was long known as The Beast of Kandahar and was, apart from sporadically leaked blurry photos, invisible to the public.

The festival was held annually—until 2013 when the police intervened—on a secret island in the archipelago of Gothenburg. Besides a range of Swedish and German DJs the festival features a number of workshops on themes like nation building, alternative currencies and new age religion.
