At first sight, Bisky's paintings may remind viewers of Leni Riefenstahl's Nazi propaganda films: bare-chested lads marching in file; a blond boy raising his right arm the way the Nazis did; athletic bodies turning somersaults.

But having been born in 1970 in Leipzig, Bisky grew up in a different kind of dictatorship: communist East Germany. He was surrounded by socialist art that glorified the country's young "pioneers" and depicted them doing physical exercise. Bisky's omnipresent blond boys are also constantly exercizing and scuffling in front of bright blue skies.
