Sofia Zuluaga / MON "Distant Bodies"

We are very excited to present the artist Sofia Zuluaga @sofiazbv as part of our ongoing exhibition "Distant Bodies".
The human bodies painted by Sofia Zuluaga combine centuries-old formal language with contemporary perspectives and aesthetics. Naked, contorted figures are reminiscent of Caravaggio's “Crowning of Thorns”, Titian's “St. Lautentius ”or Peter Paul Rubens “Andromeda ”.
Zuluaga´s baroque forms and mannerist figures appear as singular protagonists on her canvases. Their tenderness and vulnerability is accentuated by shackles and ropes. In addition to their erotic connotation, the works take on another level of meaning. Humanity and individuals, lonely and tethered by the external circumstances of the world. Powerlessness and dependence replace the lustful devotion. Nonetheless, Sofia Zuluaga's series is a reference to a hopeful future in which we can be ourselves together again in an open and tolerant world, free from regulations and restrictions.
“Distant Bodies” is curated by @denis_leo_hegic @jangustavfiedler
and @michelle.c.houston with the continuous support by our circle of friends #MONcircle. Further details can be found on our website – link in bio.

MON - Distant Bodies exhibition

16 artists from all over the world are meanwhile part of our ongoing digital exhibition "Distant Bodies". Their submitted works investigate - from different perspectives, techniques and starting points - the question that has preoccupied us since the global outbreak of the virus: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OUR BODIES CAN NO LONGER COME TOGETHER?
In the last few months we have made a unique journey with the "Distant Bodies" digital exhibition. By shifting our work, research, learning, teaching, exhibiting, communication and sales entirely into the digital world. And - oh boy - what a journey it has been so far! We were able to reinterpret old works and create whole new series. We´ve brought architects and designers into the team who create three-dimensional virtual environments. We learned to miss materiality, scale, and physicality even more, but at the same time we got to know completely new worlds, in which physical restrictions, distances and gravity play no role at all.
In times that appear uncertain, it was helpful for us to get assured that the creative journey - each and every one of us can take - can create a better world in the post-Covid era. And that´s what we want to share with you. Let´s grow together.
Many thanks to the artists and creatives for making this journey possible through their fantastic work. To everyone else: don't forget that our call is still open & send us your ideas.
Until then, enjoy the works of:

We are excited to introduce you to the next master in our digital exhibition series "Distant Bodies": Fu Wenjun Fu Wenjun Studio , a Chinese visual artist celebrated for his provocative & iconic “Digital Pictoral Photography” style.
We are showing eight artworks from his series “Thought Reading”, referring to the ability of reading other people´s minds as one of the six supernormal powers believed by Buddhists.
Fu combined the shots of the Buddhist statues from Dazu Grottoes, Chongqing (China) with CT images of human skulls – resulting in works of art that oscillate between generations, cultures, and geographies.
What is defined as 'a thorough understanding of the others' ideas', in Wenjun´s opinion, is just a metaphor. The seeing is easily influenced by one’s desires. For this reason, Buddhism teaches to "look inward" as our most essential experience.

Fu´s works conjure elements of calligraphy, oil painting, and sculpture. In 2017, the National Art Museum of China dedicated a solo exhibition to Fu´s Digital Pictorial Photography titled “Harmony in Diversity”. Sought after by museums and collectors around the world - from the 東京都美術館 Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum to the Kennedy family - Fu´s work has won numerous prestigious awards, including first prize at the International Biennial of Contemporary Art in Argentina, “The Best Artist in the World” at Tour Eiffel La Grande Exposition Universelle, and the International Award “Lorenzo il Magnifico” of X Florence Biennale.

“Distant Bodies” is curated by @dDenis Leo Hegic @Jan Fiedler and Michelle Houston with the continuous support by our circle of friends #MONcircle. Further details on this and other artists in the exhibition can be found on our website – link in bio.

Lily Dorian // Distant Bodies // Museum of Now

We are very pleased to introduce the work of the American artist @lilyclaredorian as part of our ongoing digital exhibition "Distant Bodies".
Lily Dorian creates doubles exposure photographs that appear hazed, alienated – as if veiled with a fine layer of invisible stockings. Her works speak of haptics and the alienation associated with the (current) lack of touch. The outstretched hand seems to want to take us away without ever being able to. Longing and nostalgia for the impossible are the principal layers of Dorian´s multiple exposures.

The exhibition “Distant Bodies” is curated by Denis Leo Hegic @jan Jan Fiedler & Michelle Houston and brought to you by the generous support of our circle of friends – the #MONcircle – and seeks to explore the question what happens when our bodies can no longer come together. The exhibition is an ongoing digital display for the duration of the current global pandemic. You can find further information on our website – link in bio.

ISTANBUL'74

The setting: the New York artist @harifguzman stranded in a hotel in Istanbul talks to our director and curator Denis Leo Hegic confined in a locked down Berlin.
Harif and Denis are discussing Guzman´s journey, from being a street artist to working as a designer and globally acclaimed gallery star; how Guzman transformed the luxurious lodge (he is currently trapped in) into a creative studio and what obstacles and possibilities are presented to us in the current situation in general – all this and more can be found in the last episode of the ISTANBUL'74 podcast "How Can We All Make it into the Future? " - available on Spotify, Apple Podcast and Google Podcasts.

NOW LIVE 🎙 #74PODCAST "How Can We All Make it into the Future?" - Episode #41: Harif Guzman moderated by Denis Leo Hegic

“You can’t really grow once you’ve become too comfortable with your own thoughts and your own kind of ideas. As they say, minds are like parachutes- they only work when they are open.” – Harif Guzman

“There is a discussion about the world of art that happens out there on the streets and the world of art that happens within galleries or museums - the gatekeeper mentality still exists. Harif seems unimpressed by it, regardless of his success in both dimensions.” – Denis Leo Hegic

In this episode of "How Can We All Make it into the Future?", Harif Guzman, a contemporary artist first gained recognition for his work as a street artist in New York, talks to the curator and founding director of the @museum_of_now, Denis Leo Hegic about how the Covid-19 pandemic affected his work and current living situation, his alter ego and fashion brand @Haculla_official social change through art and culture and his transformative story from the street to the art world.

City as Museum | Denis Leo Hegic | TEDxMagdeburg

Our co-founding director Denis Leo Hegic delivered an inspiring TEDtalk about a museum, which is the city itself.
In order to understand the "city as museum", he took us from the 18th century Rome to Berlin of 20th century.

"At a time, when we are observing rising tendencies towards segregation and a time when wall building seems to be dominating the media more then our celebration of bringing the wall down (...) Art - and especially the one which is accessible for everyone - is one of the pillars of our democratic expression."

Ο The Krank βιώνει την απομόνωση στο Βερολίνο και την κάνει τέχνη

For our Greek-speaking audience:
A great insight into The Kranks work - in the LIFO interview with the artist himself, whose performance work "un-safe" we premiered last week at MON.

"The Krank is experiencing isolation and turns it into art
Trapped in Berlin, The Krank narrates the agony of his daily life and describes how he managed to work with the Athenian artist Eliza Krikoni despite the quarantine."

In 2016 Dan Stockholm´s father suddenly passed away.
Subsequently, the artist methodically touched the entire house of his father. After the last part of the house has been touched, the artist created a number of negative plasters of his hands.
Finally, Stockholm presented two series of works - "House'" and "By Hand" - both of great emotionality and spiritual power, allowing us to wander through the house of his departed parent.

Dan Stockholm is part of our ongoing “Distant Bodies” virtual exhibition open calling artists and creatives from all over the world to explore the question what happens, when our bodies can no longer come together.

Today we premiered the art performance "un-safe" - realized by two artists in over 2.000 km distance to each other.
The Krank and Eliza Krikoni´s art performance is part of our "Distant Bodies" exhibition, in which we are exploring the question what happens, when our bodies can no longer come together?

The Krank und Krikoni embark on a journey into a shared space of proximity and intimacy, yet thousands of kilometers apart. They are meeting in a world of digital exchange of bits and bytes, in which geography and physical bodies become irrelevant.

We are thrilled by the artist´s speed of conceptualization and realization, when developing this piece. It is another proof, that in times of crisis, artists are the most important connectors. Our appreciation & love go to The Krank and Eliza Krikoni for bringing us this work of art.
