Upcoming

Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art

4. October – 24. November 2019
Group Show, Coventry, Coventry

The highly anticipated second Coventry Biennial will unfold across the city from the 4th October to the 24th November 2019 and we invite people to learn, look, make, talk, think and walk with us.

The biennial’s title this year is The Twin and it comprises a series of exhibitions, events and activities about relationships.

We are an international city; Coventry and Volgograd, Russia, were the first modern twin cities in the world and this year marks the 75th anniversary of that historic bond of friendship.

The core programme of The Twin will unfold across the city in medieval and modernist buildings as well as in artist studios, galleries and museums. We will be exhibiting new and existing artworks by individual artists, duos and groups from Coventry, across the UK and from many of our international twin cities as well as other international locations. We are delighted to be exhibiting the artists listed below and will be announcing a small number of additional practitioners over the coming weeks and months:

Isobel Adderley & Jazz Moreton, Tully Arnot, Art & Language, Jonny Bark, Aram Bartholl, Jordan Baseman, James Birkin, Simon & Tom Bloor, James Bridle, Lorsen Camps, Paul Chan & Badlands Unlimited, David Cheeseman, James Clarkson, Anna Columbine, Maud Cotter, Paul Crook, Matthew Darbyshire, Joseph DeLappe, Lisa Denyer, Jacqueline Donachie, Caitriona Dunnett, EVOL, Anne Forgan, Dylan Fox, Darryl Georgiou & Rebekah Tolley, Zuza Golinska, Noémie Goudal, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Mona Hatoum, Corey Hayman, Nicky Hirst, Clare Holdstock, Fred Hubble, Andrew Jackson, Juneau Projects, Navi Kaur, Smirna Kulenović, Liz Lake, Ollie Ma, Ioana Marinescu, Tony McClure, Lorna Mills, Anna Molska, MTAA, Alexandra Muller, Edie Jo Murray, Uriel Orlow, OUTLINE & Smirna Kulenović, Paper Rad, Bharti Parmar, Parmar & Piper, Partisan Social Club, Mathew Parkin, Matthew Picton, Duncan Poulton, Adele Mary Reed, Lis Rhodes, Rafaël Rozendaal, Ana Rutter, Richard Scott, Shirana Shahbazi, Larissa Shaw, Thomson & Craighead, Leonid Toprover, Chidera Ugada, Mhairi Vari, Nilupa Yasmin

Immortality – The Ural Bienniale

12. September – 1. December 2019
Group Show, uralbiennale.ru, Ekaterinburg

The Ural Industrial Biennial is the largest regional art project with international participation among those existing on the territory of the Russian Federation. The Biennial takes place at former industrial and non-exhibition spaces in Ekaterinburg and other cities of the Ural region.

In its 5th edition, the Ural Biennial explores concepts behind the Immortality, both secular and sacred; it is seen as a powerful utopist idea, as technocratic obscurity, as a symbolic tool and as a condition which might cause evident ethical schisms.

Strike Now!!

11. – 15. September 2019
Solo Show, panke.gallery, Berlin

Strike Now is a platform for discussion and exhibition about today’s working conditions in the so called ‘gig economy’. The rise of service oriented Internet companies like Uber, Amazon and Deliveroo etc created massive amounts app based self employment under often harsh conditions. Is this the new slavery of the post digital Internet commercial revolution? In which ways can workers counteract the algorithmic chains of start-up venture capital? With  lectures, a panel and an exhibition Strike Now at panke.gallery will examine these and further questions. A project by Aram Bartholl, funded by Stiftung Kunstfonds.

SF MOMA: Snap + Share

SFMOMA: snap+share
transmitting photographs from mail art to social networks
March 30–August 4, 2019
https://www.sfmoma.org/exhibition/snap/

The exhibition snap+share gives visitors a new way to visualize — and experience — how photographs have become so ubiquitous in our daily lives. Whether through early examples of 1960s and ’70s mail art, physical piles of pictures uploaded to the Internet over a 24-hour period, or a working refrigerator that allows participatory meme-making, visitors can trace the evolution of sharing photographs.

Spanning the history of mail art to social networks, the show presents a variety of artists working in various media, from framed paper-based art to immersive installations. Some of these artists include On Kawara, Ray Johnson, Moyra Davey, Erik Kessels, Corinne Vionnet, and David Horvitz. Exploring how networks are created through the act of sending images out into the world, this exhibition reveals just how those networks have changed in the age of the Internet.

curated by Clement Cheroux
with: Thomas Bachler, Ray Johnson, Aram Bartholl, On Kawara, Joseph Beuys, Erik Kessels , Moyra Davey, William Larson, Jan Dibbets, Eva and Franco Mattes, Walker Evans, Peter Miller, Jeff Guess, Ken Ohara, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Stephen Shore, Kate Hollenbach, Endre Tót, David Horvitz, Corinne Vionnet

Streetview Germany

November 22, 2010

I can’t believe this! Germany entered the scene on the digital globe today! Congrats! Google Streetview is finally life! Although it seems Google had some trouble keeping the good quality. Many images are blurred or even black, strange – how come? 😉 ….. Oh! whats that?!? Look what I found!!! F.A.T. patrol is on Steetview OMG! yes true, I heard they tagged the car with a GPS last February … what?!? They even hijacked it?!?! (http://fffff.at/google-street-view-car/don t miss the video) …

Update:

OMG! It seems that Google for one day even considered to run Streetview in Germany as a paid premium service … it would make sense! They spend so much extra money on ‘post production’ 😉

The Streetview page was blocked and the text says something like ‘Due to the high effort in picture editing Google Germany has decided to run  Google Streetview as a paid premium service….”  The page was up for only one day and for some strange reason they list themselves now as a phising attack ?!? see yourself http://goo.gl/Nk9Ca . Probably trying to blame someone else 😉

[Great speed coding job Dragan! Speed project by Dragan Espenschied and Aram Bartholl on a beautiful Friday morning last week! ]

Frontpage!

November 19, 2010

Google Streetview Germany went life yesterday and the whole country goes nuts about it, (not enough blur, too much blur, unblur FB groups etc.) haha …. OMG. After I posted my ‘15 Seconds of Fame Streetview self portraits series‘ yesterday press picked it up and I was featured in two newspapers today. Berliner Morgenpost got it quite right (because they called and I told them the story that I jumped out the cafe and ran actually dancing behind the Google car 🙂

Tagesspiegel (below) got it wrong. They describe me as being mad at the G-car.  That s not true!!! I would never do that!!! I used to drive that car too!! 😉 But Tagesspiegel is professional journalism, so they called and will get it right tomorrow with a new piece on me and my work. Looking fwd to that! 🙂 Stay tuned for a scan. (No need to by paper 😉
