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!

SPECIAL The slow beat of the body that is the skin: Ernesto Neto at MdbK Leipzig

In 2008, Brad Pitt could be seen walking around Art Basel with a yellow nose. What had happened? He had gotten too close to “Antes que eu te engula carrocellflower” (Before I swallow your carrocellflower, 2007), a work by Ernesto Neto, made from elastane tulle and filled with wood spices. The Museum der bildenden Künste in Leipzig, showcases currently two installations by the Brazilian artist. And it does only take those two artworks to transform the entire central hall on the third floor of the museum into a Universe of organic forms and sensorial experiences.
Coeur et art Editor Maira Goldschmidt paid homage to the great Neto!

SPECIAL Berlinale Interview with Berlin Bouncer Frank Künster & Smiley Baldwin

SPECIAL Berlinale Interview with Berlin Bouncer Frank Künster & Smiley Baldwin

After last night´s world premiere of the highly anticipated documentary “Berlin Bouncer,” the people lucky enough to have gotten a ticket might feel a strange sensation, even some slight disappointment at first. Because David Dietl has not – as one would have almost expected – produced a Sensational “Hau Drauf” Sex, Drugs & Rock’n’Roll documentary, but a fine, for Berlin standards almost low key and subtle portrait, illuminating the beginnings and the career of three legendary bouncers who are forever connected with Berlin.

LETTERS FROM … Kaunas in Art – so close, so far?

LETTERS FROM … Kaunas in Art – so close, so far?

Picture this: It’s the 13th century and you live in Lithuania, a fiercely independent Grand Duchy and hugely successful state that is the largest in Europe. Yet later it becomes a pawn between three bigger players, the Prussian Empire, Habsburg Austria and the Russian Empire, erasing it from the map. Lithuania only gains independence again in 1918 but loses it after the Second World War, when the Soviet Union holds occupies it for 50 years. Finally, independence is regained in 1990. A rough ride considering the stronghold Lithuania once was.

CONVERSATIONS The brushstrokes of Andrius Zakarauskas

CONVERSATIONS The brushstrokes of Andrius Zakarauskas

Exactly one year ago we spoke to the up and coming Lithuanian painter Andrius Zakarauskas about his back then just opening a solo show in Berlin, his encounter as a young artist with A.R. Penck and how his mother got it all started by taking him to art school in order to be keep his vivid mind occupied and to broaden his horizon. Besides starting his artist residency at Villa Concordia in Bamberg he was also the first Lithuanian artist ever to have a solo exhibition in China, so its safe to say the last 12 months had a lot to offer for Andrius. What else went on you can read here!

CONVERSATIONS Artist to watch: Julian Simon, Overexposure

It is no secret that the students from KBH Weissensee, like Annabell Häfner, Leo Mandel or Julian Simon inhabit a special place in my writing orbit when it comes to pick or write about young artists in Berlin.
So it was a total must and pleasure to talk to Julian Simon, about his first solo show in Paris.
After Annabell Häfner, Julian Simon is, in my opinion, another artist to watch and to invest in from Weissensee!
