The World In My Hand

18. April – 31. October 2024
Gruppenausstellung, Alexanser Tutsek-Stiftung, München

The World in My Hand explores the smartphone as both object and aesthetic inspiration for artistic creation. It comments on public debates surrounding the many uses of smartphones: from always-on media consumption to digital detox, from swiping and matching to ghosting and blocking, from language atrophy to information overload, from resource depletion to status symbol.

The curators, Dr Jörg Garbrecht and Katharina Wenkler, have chosen a narrative approach to the exhibition. In eight chapters, they summarize various aspects and debates surrounding the smartphone, ranging from the launch date of our daily digital companion to its characteristic touchscreen and the contractions of time and space it enables. Deeply personal moments – such as Ai Weiwei’s selfie at the moment of his arrest or Sergey Melnitchenko’s photograph of his son during a blackout in Kyiv – appear alongside themes of perception and presentation of the self, as realized in the glass sculpture Stability by Julija Pociūtė. Other subjects include: looking for love online, as in Ariane Forkel’s Casanova’s Kabinett or John Yuyi’s Tinder Match; the complexities and pitfalls of digital communication, for example in the works of James Akers or Alejandra Seeber; and the smartphone as a means of staying in touch during pandemic lockdown isolation, for instance in the work of George McLeod. Edward Burtynsky’s photograph of lithium mines in the Atacama Desert calls attention to the topic of raw materials for electronic devices.

With works by:
Tornike Abuladze, James Akers, Ai Weiwei, Kate Baker, Aram Bartholl, Tillie Burden, Edward Burtynsky, Yvon Chabrowski, Julia Chamberlain, Rachel Daeng Ngalle, Erwin Eisch, Ariane Forkel, Shige Fujishiro, Valentin Goppel, David Horvitz, Artem Humilevskyi, Gudrun Kemsa, Zsuzsanna Kóródi, Brigitte Kowanz, George McLeod, Sergey Melnitchenko, Jonas Noël Niedermann, Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker, Katie Paterson mit Zeller & Moye, Julija Pociūtė, Rebecca Ruchti, Karin Sander, Jeffrey Sarmiento, Alejandra Seeber, JanHein van Stiphout, Jolita Vaitkute, Sascha Weidner, John Yuyi, Jeff Zimmer

Decoding the Black Box

27. January – 2. June 2024
Gruppenausstellung, Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen, Sindelfingen

Die Ausstellung Decoding the Black Box bringt Künstlerinnen und Künstler zusammen, die Licht in diesen dunklen Raum und die Prozesse werfen, die sich in ihm ereignen. Sie legen dabei nicht nur die Funktionsweisen digitaler Technologien wie beispielsweise von künstlicher Intelligenz offen, sondern visualisieren zugleich die Auswirkungen, die sie auf unsere Wahrnehmung von Realität und unser In-der-Welt-Sein haben. Während sie die ökonomischen und machtpolitischen Strukturen der digitalen Technologien und insbesondere des Internets transparent machen, zeigen sie Gegenentwürfe für eine dezentralisierte, humanere und demokratischere Nutzung ebendieser auf.

Stitch Incoming!!

25. March 2024
Curatorial, Speed Show at Web Cafe, Athens

Monday 25th of March, 7:00 PM at Web Cafe, Eptanisou 40, 113 61 , Kypseli – Athens

with:
!Mediengruppe Bitnik with Selena Savić & Gordan Savičić , Ingrid Hideki, Joanna Bacas, Kyriaki Goni, Maria Mavropoulou, Marina Gioti, Marsunev, Nadja Buttendorf, Theo Triantafyllidis

Curated by Aram Bartholl & Socrates Stamatatos

Speed Show lands in Greece, the country of souvlaki, the sun (yes we can claim that they originated a celestial body), ouzo, feta, an enormous financial debt. Currently, Greece is also trending for all the wrong reasons namely, gentrification, queerphobia, state crimes and more dystopic incidents.
As 2024 unfolds, we find ourselves amidst a whirlwind of confusion, bombarded with a cacophony of online horrors to consume, an attention span further abbreviated by TikTok’s algorithm and the barrage of incoming stitches.

Stitches Incoming serve as a conduit for creators to engage and converse, traversing from one topic to the next. They have evolved into a new social fabric, weaving connections within an ever-shifting digital and physical landscape while also serving as a testament to personal and collective traumas, both past and present.

What unites the participating digital artists? Perhaps everything and nothing simultaneously… Departing from the traditional Speed Show setup, where artworks are carefully stacked inside internet cafe computers, and drawing inspiration from the structure of TikTok stitches, each piece seems to propel the conversation forward, or perhaps uses the next as a springboard for its own narrative.

Stitch this and stitch that, we have everything you ever wanted (maybe) ! Are we stuck in an infinite loop of sh*tposting, valuable content, the highlight of social issues, personal and interpersonal experiences?
Maybe! Come and find out…

Mark Jenkins in Berlin?

März 10, 2008


This „Installation“ looks like a Mark Jenkins piece, but the guy is unfortunately real and serious about his begging effort. I keept seeing him at Hackescher Markt Berlin lately. He reminded me so much of Mark’s  „invisible“ sculptures. Nobody takes notice.
Great work Mark! Was goo to meet you at the Open City exhibition last year!

Skulpturenpark Berlin

Skulpturenpark Berlin do have interesting public space exhibitions (and also made my Sanbox Berlin project possible, thx!)

„LANDSCAPES OF DESIRE“ CONTEMPORARY ART STRATEGIES IN THE URBAN CONTEXT.

NOVEMBER 2007 – Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum

Wednesday 28th of November 7:30 pm

The Lecture will take place in the atelier and exhibition space of the artists
Neue Grünstrasse 20 Berlin-Mitte
Subway Stop U2 Spittelmarkt.

Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is a project by five artists who founded KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V. Matthias Einhoff, Philip Horst, Markus Lohmann, Harry Sachs and Daniel Seiple. Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is located on an urban wasteland which was formerly the „Mauerstreifen,“ the military zone within the Berlin Wall. It remains vacant to this day. With approximately 5 hectares of open lots, it offers a vast space and unique history to host various socio-cultural activities. Modecentrum, a former fashion center, sits on the southwest boundary of this area. On the third floor, KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V. has rented an 800 square meter hall with windows which face this vacant land. Rather than encouraging „plop art“ or following the tradition of many open-air museums, Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is interested in sculpture as a process that has the potential to reveal and critique the social, historical, and structural contexts provided by the site. It is not interested in placing objects into an already cultivated urban or park landscape.

„Mitting“ performance by Oliver Hangl during Urban Interfaces Berlin

April 25, 2007

The ongoing Urban Interface exhibition in Berlin features some really nice public space pieces and performances. Tomorrow I will definately check out the Mitting performance by Oliver Hangl. I saw his talk at TESLA some days ago and his wireless headphone walk concept for 70 people seamed to be very promising. Who wants to join? By the way I like the name Mitting. A nice combination of Mitte and Wedding.

Thu, April 26, 6 pm Performance-tour Mitting, starting point: uib headquarters. Torstraße 161, Berlin-Mitte. The tour lasts 2-3 hours. the number of participants is limited to 70. Please bring your ID for deposit.
