Clemens von Wedemeyer – The Illusion of a Crowd

„Discover the first monographic exhibition in Canada devoted to German artist Clemens von Wedemeyer.
Coup, insurrection, parade, protest, resistance, revolution, or rioting mob: terminologies like these require a careful contextual analysis within (counter-)hegemonic narratives.

Clemens von Wedemeyer's moving-image works and his artist's publication The Illusion of a Crowd (2020) provide a comprehensive insight into how visual culture displays such forms of temporary collectivity.“

Until May 28th 2022

Clemens von Wedemeyer – The Illusion of a Crowd

„Découvrez la première exposition monographique au Canada de l'artiste allemand Clemens von Wedemeyer.
Coup d'État, insurrection, défilé, manifestation, résistance, révolution, émeute : des termes comme ceux-là doivent faire l'objet d'une analyse contextuelle minutieuse dans les récits
(contre-)hégémoniques.

Les œuvres filmiques de Clemens von Wedemeyer et son livre d'artiste The
Illusion of a Crowd (2020) font la lumière sur la façon dont la culture visuelle présente ces formes de collectivité temporaire.“

Jusqu'au 28 Mai 2022

Irene Kanga (CATPC) about her work "Forced Love".

The sculpture is currently on view in our downstairs exhibition CATPC, "Forced Love".
@catpc_lusanga

[…] CATPC’s sculptures from river clay are digitally scanned using state of the art 3D technology, exported and reproduced in Amsterdam (the world’s biggest cocola port) in chocolate enriched with palm fat. CATPC’s first solo exhibition in New York City, highlighting these sculptures, led to much controversy and was hailed by the New York Times as ‘best art of 2017’. As journalist Jason Farago wrote: ‘This was the most challenging show of the year, and proudly “problematic,” but that was the point: You need to be fearless, and run right into the swamp of possible misunderstanding, to have any hope of making a difference’ (New York Times, 6 Dec 2017). Joanna Fiduccia went further: ‘Plantations were not just operations; they were ideologies, justifying the treatment of resources, people, and their sculptural “fetishes” alike as raw material that must subsequently be refined into first-world luxuries. A plantation workers’ art collective is transgressive because it establishes intimacy with material that has been historically denied to them: not chocolate, but sculpture’ (Even Magazine).

The video is an excerpt from Renzo Martens' film "White Cube" (2020).

Franz Erhard Walther — Gelbmodellierung // currently on Display in the collection of the new museum Nürnberg

This work is one of the so-called "wall formations" created from 1978 to 1986. Within these, the eleven-meter-long and five-meter-high work can be considered outstanding not only because of its dimensions. In a unique way it enters into a connection with the architectural space. Walther understands the museum wall as a pedestal for his work, which the public can approach in the ways that are ultimately important to him: "in front of it," "on it," or "in it.

Hiwa K – Pre-Image (Blind as the Mother Tongue) (2017)

Currently on display at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt within the exhibition WALK!

„In his video works and installations, Hiwa K reflects on political events and culture-historical phenomena, which he interconnects in his poetic works. The question of geographical positioning, the search for orientation, and becoming aware of oneself play a fundamental role in many works by the artist, who once reported that something like a “Heimat”, or homeland, would be located in his feet.“

„The video Pre-Image (Blind as the Mother Tongue) (2017) shows Hiwa K walking across fields, wastelands, and estates from Turkey to Athens and then to Rome—a path that mirrors his own journey as a child, when he fled Iraqi Kurdistan and reached Europe on foot. In his video, he looks back on part of this flight. As his body crossed borders as a child, his identity became fragmented into the many roles projected onto him by the gaze of others. These multitude of roles is symbolized by a pole fitted with bicycle, car, and motorcycle mirrors, which he balances on the bridge of his nose and forehead.“

This exhibition will be on display from February 18 – MAY 22, 2022

Anna Ehrentein Tupamaras Technophallus, 2020

At Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken

Currently on display from 18. FEBRUAR - 15. MAI 2022

The German-Albanian artist Anna Ehrenstein (born in 1993) investigates forms of knowledge and their construction. Garish sculptural and virtual installations interrogate representation and self-image. Ehrenstein's multidisciplinary practice reveals power structures, their culturally various interpretations and shows how media shape world affairs.

The artwork Tupamaras Technophallus was created in collaboration with the Bogota based vogueing and performance collective “House of Tupamaras”. A 360° VR Video assemblage, sculptural works of extended photography and installations explore embodied knowledge, war in disguise, gender fluidity, future dangers of algorithmic preconceptions due to data gaps or the role of “emerging” artists in “emerging” contexts.

Sale in support of the NGO INSIGHT Ukraine
 
In support of the non-profit organization INSIGHT in Kiev, Ukraine, Tobias Zielony and KOW are offering works from the artist's Maskirovka photographic series at a preferential price.

100% of the proceeds from the sale will benefit INSIGHT.
 
The images in the series were taken between 2016 and 2017 and focus on the underground queer and techno scene in Kiev after the 2013 revolution. "Maskirovka" refers to a tradition of Russian war tactics of deception. The so-called "green men" who occupied Crimea and helped pro-Russian forces in eastern Ukraine were actually Russian special forces who wore face masks to hide their identities and start a hybrid war that was never officially declared–until the brutal Russian invasion on February 24, 2022.

All images from this series are currently on display at KOW.

Strengthening Ukrainian civil society is now more important than ever. INSIGHT, a nonprofit organization in Kyiv, advocates for equality, feminism, freedom, inclusivity, and diversity for all social groups. Its focus is on supporting LGBTQI+ communities. INSIGHT advocates for their rights, provides legal and psychological assistance to victims of violence and discrimination, and works to create a tolerant and inclusive climate in the Ukrainian public sphere and culture. 

Photographs from the Maskirovka series are available as a portfolio at a preferential price of €8,000 (excl. VAT); in addition, individual motifs from this edition are offered for €1,000 (excl. VAT). All proceeds will benefit INSIGHT ( insight-ukraine.org ).
