Here to lounge

Slower, an exhibition that is about the allocation of time, is opens at @DeborahSchamoni in Munich today. On show are Shannon Finnegan's works which often provide the conditions for spending time with others' artworks. But however pronounced her comments on infrastructure, Finnegan's benches and seats, above all, take their time. They assemble states of rest into a performative consenting group utterance: "Rest here if you agree."

Opening: 06.05.2022 from 6–9 pm
On show until 17.06.2022

Who is afraid of white, black, and beige?

is open now at Galerie Gisela Clement, featuring Trouble Inc, an artist collective consisting of Michelle Elie, Mike Meire and Troi Ollivierre.

The photographic examination of identity, gender and racism is subjected to a complex reinterpretation. What role does the skin color play and how does it still impact our feelings and perceptions when making decisions in human relationship?

How has the political policies within the system build on color identity has been a pivotal validation on ethnic, racial oppression and segregation through discourses around value, taste, culture, methodology and the deployment of color. While race and class are still defined in black and white in large parts of society, a new consciousness shaped by social media and digitalization is increasingly shifting these conditional boundaries of gender and identity towards new collectivity and
solidarity.

As a black woman who has worked in the fashion industry all her life, as a model and fashion influencer, Michelle Elie is confronted with questions about age, body and skin color as well as norms and stereotypes on a daily basis.

In moments when many people feel the inequality and injustice of the ruling systems, it is about a strong conviction in who you are and what you identify with. Without discrimination or exclusion. Who’s afraid of black, white and beige?

Open through 3.7.2022

Flowers by Karel Appel to start the week cheerfully and to commemorate his birthday.

The Dutch artist Christiaan Karel Appel, born on this day in 1921, started painting at the age of fourteen and studied at the prestigious Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Although Appel was primarily known as a founding member of the avant-garde movement CoBrA in 1948, and causing a stir with its expressionist canvases with bright colours, intense brushwork and a thick layer of impasto paint, he was also an avid sculptor and valued poet.

In the sixties, Appel experienced an extremely fruitful production phase: in addition to his expressive paintings, he also produced collages in which - inspired by the Nouveaux Réalistes - he combined his passion for painting and materials. Paper and cardboard fragments, newspaper clippings and other found objects enter into a lively dialogue with his powerful, animal-like formations in watercolour, gouache or coloured pencil. In addition, Appel made several assemblages incorporating toys or plastic flowers. This 'Flower Vendor' was exhibited at Art Cologne 2021 by Jahn und Jahn who recently published a nearly complete catalog raisonné of Appel's collages from the late 1950s and 1960s.

Yes - Biennale Arte 2022 is open to public now!

So is the German Pavilion 2022 which artist Maria Eichhorn, invited by curator Yilmaz Dziewior, sort of turned upside-down.

In her project 'Relocating a Structure. German Pavilion 2022, 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia', Maria Eichhorn examines the eventful history of the German Pavilion since the beginnings of the Biennale and the powerful resistance art demonstrates when it focuses on social conditions.

With her visually minimal gestures, spatial interventions, and process-based works, Eichhorn critically examines institutional power structures and political and economic interrelationships. 'Relocating a Structure' consists of a number of interacting components. Eichhorn’s initial idea was to relocate the German Pavilion for the duration of the Biennale and then to faithfully reassemble it on its original site. The temporary relocation of the building would leave an empty space, increasing the undeveloped area of the Giardini, originally designed as a public park, as well as the visual and spatial environment around the adjacent pavilions. The German Pavilion’s absence would open up space for movement, reflection, and an examination of the conditions to which art is exposed in the context of the Biennale with its national pavilions.

La Biennale di Venezia is open through 27 November 2022.

Last week to see •JENS KOTHE „studio_64646“ • solo exhibition at Kunstverein Heppenheim.

The organic sculptures and wall works by young German artist Jens Kothe are all about the human body. In particular, aspects of sensuality and vulnerability are found in his works. For the realisation, he chooses materials such as upholstery wadding, silicone, concrete, stretch foils or fabrics worked with delicate colour pigments, which in their contrasting nature evoke different haptic associations in the viewer.

With the Heppenheim exhibition "Studio__64646", Kothe questions the term "studio", which is nowadays applied almost inflationarily to the most diverse areas of everyday life. In a coherent, space-related installation, he placed a large-format work in the centre of the exhibition space that resembles a reclining device. Surrounded by other works that can be read as slatted curtains, massage arms, stools or headrest cushions. The objects are deliberately fragmentary and freely elaborated and - unlike the original meaning of the term studio = artist's studio - also make reference to the meaning of the massage studio.

Open through 26 April 2022.

Jens Kothe is represented by Berthold Pott Gallery who featured his work in the Collaborations section of Art Cologne 2021.

Happy Easter 🥚 Frohe Ostern 🥚 Happy Holidays

with this Not Vital sculpture 🥚

Not Vital is considered a nomadic artist who, for about 50 years now, has been exploring the world with an anthropological inquisitiveness. In his studios in Brazil, Chile, China, Italy and Niger, he lives and works for several months with the local people and their cultures and traditions. At the same time, Vital is closely connected to the place of his origin, the Swiss Engadin, to which he regularly returns. The artist draws the inspiration for his works from this multitude of places and encounters with people, local traditions and handicraft techniques, but also from his own childhood and youth memories. Vital’s works are formally characterized by a fascinating clarity and precision and convey an enigmatic timelessness through their somehow indefinable, archaic-seeming iconography.

On display in Milan: Esther Stocker's exhibition 'Return to Rationality' at 10 A.M. ART Gallery, once again demonstrates her attraction to formal paradoxes, 'mistakes' and playing with optical balance. While her research has often focused on defending or emphasising notions of anarchy, irrationality or freedom from fixed or overly rigid systems, current events have led her to question the need for a return to some form of rationality. As an expression of this, the exhibition at Galleria 10 A.M. ART in Milan is arranged as an environmental installation on the main floor and a series of paintings and sculptures on the ground floor, in which a succession of elements creates disruption and interference, challenging and questioning the limits of order, perceptual consistency and the responsibility of each individual within the community.

Esther Stocker: Ritorno alla razionalità - on view through 27 May 2022 at Galleria 10 A.M. Art.

Opening tomorrow: Karin Kneffel's solo show »ein Gruß aus der Küche« (Greetings From The Kitchen).

⁣The sumptuous and eloquent paintings of German artist Karin Kneffel are perfectly constructed impossibilities, flawlessly executed in a seductively realistic manner. Although many of her sources really exist, the resulting images are craftily wrought scenes, inspired by the many lives of art, and highlighting painting's unique ability to simultaneously maintain and destroy illusions.

Karin Kneffel⁣: ein Gruß aus der Küche
Opening: Sunday, 3 April 2022 at 11.30am
In the exhibition space of Lippische Gesellschaft für Kunst at Schloß Detmold ⁣
⁣Open daily except on Monday⁣: 10-12am and 2-5pm⁣. On view through May 08, 2022.⁣ Free admission⁣.

Our story

“We have always focused on the fact that Art Cologne is the oldest art fair, on its historical significance, however, we are now looking to the future, becoming more experimental and emphasizing the importance of young galleries and emerging artists.” -- Daniel Hug, Fair Director at Art Cologne

For over 40 years, Art Cologne has been renowned for offering an opportunity for viewing, enjoying and buying top-of-the range artworks. Each year, over 200 leading international galleries from more than 20 countries present a carefully curated selection of 20th and 21st century artworks by over 2,000 emerging and established artists. Art lovers and collectors find a broad range of modern and contemporary art in all price brackets and from all movements.

Art Cologne features several unconventional platforms for exhibiting art, including OPEN SPACE, forward-looking programmes like NEW POSITIONS – the Fair’s scheme of sponsored stands for emerging artists – and the NEW CONTEMPORARIES scheme for young galleries. A programme of prizes and important special exhibitions round out the schedule of high-calibre supporting events.

Originally founded in 1967 by the gallery owners Hein Stünke and Rudolf Zwirner as the “Kunstmarkt Köln '67”, Art Cologne has become one of the most important international events, known for its exceptional and high quality art from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Bemerkungen

Although graffiti has been practised since ancient times, it came to prominence as a modern art movement in the second half of the 20th century with the “Sprayer von Zürich” Harald Naegeli (*1939) at the forefront. Coming to Cologne in late 1979 to escape from being prosecuted in Switzerland for illegally spraying graffiti, the artist found refuge at the home of WDR reporter Marianne Lienau, who had done a story on Naegeli together with her colleague Hubert Maessen. His nightly wanderings through the city resulted in spray-painting countless skeletons and skulls on legs, the majority of which had been destroyed by 1982. Today, most of the documentary evidence of his work exists only in the form of historic photographs. A graffiti exhibition held by the art museum Kölnischer Kunstverein in 1982 under the direction of Wulf Herzogenrath, “Eine andere Malerei” (“A different kind of painting”), included documentary photographs of the skeletons produced by the “Sprayer of Zurich”. This exhibition brought the skeletons legendary fame as a complete art series entitled Kölner Totentanz (The danse macabre of Cologne). Most of these figures no longer exist today, but a number of them were documented as part of the exhibition. While Naegeli is known as one of Europe’s first graffiti artists, his drawings on paper are less well known. In 2018, he gifted Museum Schnütgen - Kunst des Mittelalters with 102 drawings and a portfolio of etchings. The exhibition ‘Harald Naegeli in Cologne – Sprayer and Draughtsman’ presents a selection of these works, which range from small-scale representational pieces to the large-scale, mystical ink drawings of the Urwolke (Nebula) that are composed of countless delicate strokes and stipples applied by pen. The exhibition thus allows Naegeli’s works to enter into a dialogue with the medieval objects of the museum. On show until 12 June 2022.
