The artist and writer Christos Mouchas is giving us an insight into the current exhibition that is taking place at K-Gold Temporary Gallery, a non-profit, nomadic art platform on the Greek Island of Lesvos.

INTRODUCING Guglielmo Castelli

  When, two years ago, we first encountered the work of Italian artist Guglielmo Castelli at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, we found ourselves borne off into a poetical darkness, to a dimension that left us with an unhealthy longing for the kind of...

SPECIAL Eigenbedarf in den Uferhallen

Raumnot und Verdrängung sind in ganz Berlin zu spüren. Davon sind längst auch Ateliers und Ausstellungsräume der 'Kunstmetropole' wie das Gelände der Uferhallen im Wedding  betroffen. Vor rund 12 Jahren haben Künstler*innen den rund 9.000 m² großen Backsteinkomplex,...

ART FAIRS Volta Basel 2019

Wenn sich heute die Türen der VOLTA Basel zuerst für die VIP und Presse Preview und danach für das wie jedes JAHR zahlreich angereiste Messe Publikum öffnet sehen die 79 teilnehmenden Galerien, Aussteller und Organisatoren auf einen monatelangen Planungs-Marathon zurück. Neben der Kuration und Künstlerauswahl, gibt es langwierige Logistik zu planen, die Unterbringung der Mitarbeiter, Transportkosten sind zu kalkulieren, der Aufbau des Messe Standes, um nur ein paar Punkte zu nennen. Oder „Nach der Messe ist vor der Messe“. Nicht ohne Grund heben wir hier die langwierigen Planungen im Vorlauf vor..

MON COEUR FAIT VROUM with Nomad

In the right context, repetitions can be a beautiful thing – or to put it another way, less can indeed be more. So the tradition of the so-called "Three questions" – an easy way of finding out what it is that drives artists in their work – seems a natural fit for...

INTRODUCING Michael Pendry

INTRODUCING Michael Pendry

Softly lulling coos fill the nave. More than two thousand origami paper doves, popped in blue light, whirl softly on the ceiling. Visitors stop, inhale, lift the view and rest. These doves are a testimony to a divinely calming presence among the visitors. And this reaction is intended. „Les Colombes - the doves“ is a site-specific multimedia installation by artist Michael Pendry.

MON COEUR FAIT VROUM with Guido Brancher

Repetitions if applied in the right context can be a beautiful thing. We have always been a fan of a "less is more" approach so the tradition of the so-called three question game as an easy tool to understand (a fracture) of the motives of an artist seems a natural...

DOUBLE TROUBLE with Danni Pantel & Karl-Luis Vossbeck in New York

DOUBLE TROUBLE with Danni Pantel & Karl-Luis Vossbeck in New York

At tonight's charity exhibition, "TRANSITION" at Hotel de Rome which is held for Olafur Eliasson's Little Sun Foundation, you can meet the two participating artists Danni Pantel and Karl-Luis Vossbeck. Both recently returned from an intense enclave like work trip from New York. The enclave part was certainly not necessarily what the two had in mind and bargained for and was caused by the ice cold and extreme weather conditions. And boy, we know New York can get really freezing! In direct opposition to the temperatures outside was the stirred up energy inside their workplace. Working and living next to each other for the period of two months, preparing and producing large scale paintings for a one night pop up show without being able to leave the house might create an interesting challenge. Especially as Danni Pantel and Karl-Luis Vossbeck are an odd pairing when it comes to their personalities and works approaches as artists, yet they seem to be feeding on their artistic feuds and antithetic mindsets in a very productive way!
