Jürgen Tenz uses in his paintings, drawings and high printing on a hand press the language of figurative character. As on stage, he presents his "Performance of the Useless", and finds in his world of images an own language on this subject. The figurative bodies in their ambiguous movements are the useless, the excluded ones from the labor process, the credit-unworthy consumers - even those who swim against the current and survive in the society.
