KOSTAS MURKUDIS RECOMMENDS: OBJECT40 & ARIANE HOSEMANN

KOSTAS MURKUDIS RECOMMENDS: OBJECT40 & ARIANE HOSEMANN

Now that I have lived in Charlottenburg for many years, and I’ve been able to see how this part of the city has positively changed, it’s been a nice surprise to stroll through the streets and stumble upon art galleries and studios like Object40 on Schulüterstraße — which specializes in displaying art from artists of the former DDR, Karl-Heinz Adler or Friedrich Kracht just to name a few. I appreciate that they are providing a platform here to showcase their impressive art.

Another very personal recommendation I have for this weekend, are the exhibition of photographs by Ariane Hosemann. What unites her artworks is their distinct characteristics, and her value of this position, but also her individual, habitual search for congruity — which she questions consistently with her work. Her impressive series “Feuer” (“Fire”) is on display from tomorrow night (21.4.2017) at the new M+ Projekt artspace. (Text: Kostas Murkudis / Photos: Ariane Hoseman (L), c/o Object40 (M, R))

ENJOY YOUR LIFE — JUERGEN TELLER’S POINT OF VIEW

ENJOY YOUR LIFE — JUERGEN TELLER’S POINT OF VIEW

From an offbeat shoot in the French countryside with Kim and Kanye to celebrity-studded ad campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Juergen Teller’s polarizing photographs have made him one of the most popular photographers of our time, giving him mass appeal, even if against his will. Teller’s distinct works appear deceptively elementary, with raw composition and an oft-overexposed quality. His incomparable style leads to photographs of individuals that are as unexpected as they are visceral, and from today (20.4.17), you can immerse yourself in his aesthetic at a new exhibition, “Enjoy Your Life!” at Martin-Gropius-Bau. On show is a collection of 250 his recent works that truly epitomize his singular point of view. (Text: Devan Grimsrud / Photos: Juergen Teller c/o Bundeskunsthalle)

THE M+ PROJEKT ARTSPACE LANDS IN BERLIN WITH LUIGI PRESICCE

THE M+ PROJEKT ARTSPACE LANDS IN BERLIN WITH LUIGI PRESICCE

The M+ Projekt artspace has been providing the denizens of Munich with a thought-provoking series of humanistic-focused exhibitions since 2015, offering artists from around the world the opportunity to enter a dialogue with the city. Now the project is gracing Berlin with its point of view for 3 months. The temporary program kicks off next Wednesday (26.04.17) with the opening of Luigi Presicce’s exhibition “Nostalgia del Futuro”, which sees the Italian artist go against the grain of the current scene’s future focus to re-embrace his country’s rich and varied classical art heritage. Paintings imbued with symbolism are presented in amongst mystic sculptures cast in bronze and finished in white talc. Don’t miss your chance to see this expressive artist bring the classical into the contemporary, gaze turned towards the divine. A portion of the funds raised from works sold will go towards Christoph Schlingensief’s charity organization Operndorf Afrika. (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photos: c/o Brigitta Horvat)

SARAH LUCAS’ SUBVERSIVE EASTER CELEBRATION AT CFA

SARAH LUCAS’ SUBVERSIVE EASTER CELEBRATION AT CFA

Prominent British artist Sarah Lucas has been making evocative, feminist art for almost 25 years, defining her style with the use of various everyday items and becoming known for her signature “nuds” made from gnarled nylon stockings. To kick off her sixth exhibition at CFA Berlin, Lucas is inviting a free-flowing mixture of artists and friends to come together for a weekend dedicated to Easter themes like The Last Supper, the Passion, and the Resurrection. Events will take place over the four day Easter weekend starting with the opening of her new exhibition, “FunQroc – I Think I Love You” this Thursday (13.4.17). Combining a works from throughout her career with some new works-in-progress, we can expect her signature materials and style to be present in each piece – from found domestic objects to concrete, photographs to her iconic “nuds”. After the exhibition launch, continue to explore Lucas’ vision through the weekend with collective art-making events and meals directed by the artist herself.

FROM BEIJING TO BERLIN — THE I: PROJECT SPACE LANDS AT LORIS

FROM BEIJING TO BERLIN — THE I: PROJECT SPACE LANDS AT LORIS

Just three years ago, Antonie Angerer and Anna-Viktoria Eschbach opened an art space in Beijing. Their “I: Project Space” in Banqiao Hutong, the city’s historical quarter, soon became more than just an exhibition space for emerging artists. Today, the duo invite organise artist residences, lead a publishing house and manage festivals for Beijing’s independent galleries. Now it’s their turn to be hosted for a month in Berlin, where their group exhibition, “Its blueness soothes the sharp burn in your eyes” opens tomorrow (7.4.17) at Loris. Stop by to see Martin Kohout’s exploration of corporate brand aesthetics, Wu Ding’s installations that seek a higher order, and Anahita Razmi’s reinterpretation of her Iranian roots. Each artist is connected by their attitude to the world, which is no longer defined by territorial boundaries but instead by digital links: Their works live out utopian techno fantasies, manipulate reality and create their own alternative facts. (Text: Laura Storfner / Photos: (clockwise) Anahita Razmi, Wu Ding, Martin Kohout)
