An exhibit with Li­li Du­jou­rie, Isa Genz­ken, As­trid Klein, Mi­scha Ku­ball, Aron Meh­zi­on,

The ex­hi­bi­ti­on is a spa­ti­al ex­pe­ri­ment wi­th mul­ti­laye­red le­vels of de­pic­tion and re­flects va­rious as­pects of the re­la­ti­ons­hip bet­ween space and pic­tu­res, from mul­ti­ple per­spec­tives, from ori­gi­nal ima­ges and co­pies. It asks ques­ti­ons about what art, art­works, work, the world, the self, and its re­flec­tion can be as mo­dels of know­ledge. In the dou­bling of the world be­hind the mir­ror, pa­ra­do­xi­cal­ly a con­cre­te frame of re­fe­rence opens for our ques­ti­ons about the re­al and pos­si­ble forms of rea­li­ty that lies bet­ween things. Thus, in ad­di­ti­on to the ge­ne­ral ques­ti­on of sen­sua­li­ty and aest­he­tics, the ex­hi­bi­ti­on ex­plo­res know­ledge, va­lues, and cor­re­la­ti­ons as a cen­tral ques­ti­on and an­s­wer in space.

RICHARD DEACON AT MUSEUM FOLKWANG
Drawings and Prints 1968 - 2016
26 August - 13 November 2016


Richard Deacon (*1949 Bangor/Wales) is one of the most important sculptors worldwide. Next to his world famous sculptors, Deacon is also passionate about drawing, an activity that is highly significant for him: “I believe drawing and thinking are very close to each other.”

This is the first time that an exhibition is devoted to Richard Deacon’s drawings. Approximately 150 works from five decades are shown – from the artist’s early beginnings up to the present day. Almost all of the works have never before been shown to the public. Drawing has a twofold function for Deacon: alongside sketches and studies for sculptures, the artist also produced drawings independent of sculptural projects from early on. The formal scope of these autonomous drawings is substantial, ranging from early small-scale collages and large-format pencil drawings to entire series in recent years. His latest work is a wall drawing that the artist conceived especially for the exhibition entrance wall.


We were allowed to accompany the artist during the setup of his show in Essen. Many thanks!

OLAF BREUNING RETROSPECTIVE AT NRW-FORUM DÜSSELDORF
11 June - 21 August 2016


Olaf Breuning is known for his impressive pictorial worlds and his ironic views on a reality that is shaped by the media. His photographs, videos, drawings and installations make use of a shared visual language and mix symbols from the world of pop and the media with icons of high culture. Somewhere between humour and a painful seriousness, they make us aware of our consumerism, Western stereotypes and gender clichés and analyse the relationship between art and kitsch, reality and illusion, authenticity and artificiality.

Juergen Teller. Enjoy Your Life!

10 June - 25 September 2016


Juergen Teller is one of the world’s most sought-after contemporary photographers. His pictures have straddled the interface of art and commercial photography. His stylistic device of choice is the portrait. Working in the areas of music, fashion and celebrities as well as everyday scenes and landscape, he draws on his intuitive feel for people, situations, milieus and clichés to create images of great immediacy and deceptive simplicity. The latest series, "Mit dem Teller nach Bonn" and "Plates/Teller", seem to bring together and concentrate all his earlier themes and compositions.

HITO STEYERL "FACTORY OF THE SUN" AT DORTMUNDER U

HardwareMedienKunstVerein
5 June - 28 August 2016


The HMKV presents the­­­ German premiere of Hito Steyerl’s “Factory of the Sun”. The internationally renowned artist Hito Steyerl (*1966) produced this spectacular installation for the German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2015. In this video environment Hito Steyerl makes use of the emphatic notion of sunlight, that old symbol of progress, leading us in a dialectic fashion, which is both critical and playful, to the very heart of the debates about our digital present. It is not without a certain bitter irony that Steyerl weighs up the utopian potential of the Internet against its “deadly transparency”. The protagonists’ dance in the "motion capture studio" acts as the motor for the progressing metamorphosis of the images, and is at the same time a playful form of resistance against invisible opponents.

In the art of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster (born in 1965 in Strasbourg, lives in Paris and Rio de Janeiro), everything revolves around experiences of and reflections on spaces and times. Using often minimal resources, she evokes places, people, and things that exist in one form or another in our collective memory. Her themes may be as diverse as the influence of hippiedom during the 1970s, the film director Rainer Werner Fassbinder, the urban utopia of Brasilia, King Ludwig II, psychoanalysis, a tropical rainstorm, or the prospects for the year 2066.

With his junk objects, machine sculptures, but also his happenings and performances, the Swiss artist Jean Tinguely is regarded as one the most versatile and independent protagonists of the international art scene since the 1950s. Early on he artistically explored the phenomenon of movement. In collaboration with the Tinguely Museum, Basel, and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, this show will be the first major exhibition of the work of Tinguely in approximately15 years. The show, which comprises more than 100 works, will span a wide range of works, starting with his first tenderly poetic wire sculptures and kinetic assemblages through to his world-famous Méta-matics.

KAI 10 / ARTHENA FOUNDATION Düsseldorf

The home has become the center of one’s social and professional life. Nowadays communication and consumption are possible without even leaving the private space. The contradiction is merely apparent: In this age of globally networked activities, people’s private microcosm in particular is gaining in importance. But to which extent have our homes changed and what will they look like in the future, when hardly any objective criteria remain in order to distinguish between the private and public sphere, between work and leisure, between day and night, between rest and activity?

19.04. - 14.08.2016


The Von der Heydt-Museum Wuppertal is dedicating a comprehensive retrospective exhibition to Tony Cragg (b. 1949), the most significant British contemporary sculptor. The exhibition encompasses all three floors of the Museum and presents a survey of Cragg’s entire oeuvre, from his student days right up to new works created in 2015. The artist is exhibiting sculptures, drawings, and prints, including works that have never been on display before.
 
Thematic displays follow the course of the sculptor’s multifaceted artistic development, in which the variety of materials used (including plastic, glass, works on paper, bronze, plaster, and stainless steel) plays a significant part. The series of works that examine the relationship between natural and synthetic forms and structures – including his Stack Sculptures, Vessels and Cells, Early Forms, Rational Beings and his earlier wall installations in plastic – form the other main focal point of the show.

The Trauma of Painting
05 March - 03 July 2016


Alberto Burris biography reflects the trauma of the Italy after Fascism and the turbulent, dramatic course of the 20th century. In the immediate aftermath of World War II, Burris experiences as a military physician and as an American prisoner of war transformed him into a powerful autodidactic artist whose work bears witness to acts of destruction and repair. With his instantly recognizable paintings constructed from materials such as iron, burlap, and plastic, the Italian Alberto Burri (1915–1995) was among the most influential artists of the postwar era. In cooperation with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York, the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf hosts the comprehensive retrospective "Alberto Burri: The Trauma of Painting".

NEW "99 SECONDS OF: CYPRIEN GAILLARD"

JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION DUESSELDORF


Cyprien Gaillard often starts a new work by seeking out artefacts, monuments or architectural creations which seem to have lost their significance in the present time. His nomadic gaze takes in backdrops both urban and natural, manicured or wild, focussing on spots where beauty has evolved from decay or where violence has left scars on the landscape. Thus the artist vividly depicts the times and places where our present-day economic and cultural needs interact with architectural legacies or the cultural heritage of a region. Each of Gaillard’s film works orbits in its own ways the myths surrounding the various settings, describing how outworn utopian urges or belief systems collide with current social conditions and political realities.
