Form, Class & Beauty, Klemm’s Berlin, Germany

Sep13 – Oct 26 / 2019

Gabriele Beveridge, Viktoria Binschtok, Ulrich Lamsfuß and Ken Lum – invited by Viktoria Binschtok

Our image-based reality lays the ground and provides the necessary input for the mixed media works that compose the exhibition Form, Class & Beauty. Through a diverse repertoire of appropriation strategies, public images are shifted into new contexts of meaning, which block themselves against obvious associations. The fusion of photography with text, algorithms, painting, and object leads to various combinations and opens up alternative perspectives on familiar representations.

Those are above all stereotypical representations of beauty, status, gender, etc… that dominate our urban and social environments (online and offline). They manifest cultural codes that set the bar of ideal existence in a system. Everything that cannot be seen in the general canon of images is also socially marginalized. 

The artistic rearrangement of the fragments of our visual culture is staged here in what can be understood as aesthetically seductive assemblages – however, it does not exclude a critical examination of its impact.

‚with / against the flow‘ – contemporary photographic intervantions

curated by by Florian Ebner, head of the Department of Photography at the Museum Folkwang in Essen, and author Christin Müller, Leipzig.

15.12.2016

world premiere abroad: Georgian National Museum, Tbilissi

tiflis-opening

The exhibition series with/against the flow. Contemporary Photographic Interventions presents artists who live in Germany, have established their own distinct visual idioms and are now interrogating the medium of photography afresh. It is the forms that their artistic interventions take that connect their various positions. Regardless of what motivates the artists or what interests them in terms of content, in the work they do they intervene in the very substance of the image or in external reality itself. The question remains as to whether this work should still be labelled “documentary” or whether it is, in fact, a form of realism that spills over into fiction.

L’image volée, curated by Thomas Demand

Fondazione Prada Milan, 18.03.-28.08.16

http://www.fondazioneprada.org/projects/limage-volee/?lang=en
The exhibition revolves around the idea that we all stand on someone else’s shoulders, and explores how artists have always referred to existing imagery to make their own. Questioning the boundaries between originality, conceptual inventiveness and the culture of the copy, the project will focus on theft, authorship, annexation and the creative potential of such pursuits.

Situated in a special exhibition architecture by sculptor Manfred Pernice, the show will present 80 works realized by about 45 artists between 1820 and the present day, including commissions by John Baldessari, Oliver Laric and Sara Cwynar amongst others. An illustrated book will accompany the project, with essays by Russell Ferguson, Christy Lange, short stories by Ian McEwan and Ali Smith, and interventions by Rainer Erlinger and Don McLean, published by Fondazione Prada.

‚Organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and nonsite.org, „Photography and Philosophy“ is a two-day symposium exploring the themes of the autonomy of the photographic image, automatism, and time and meaning. Originally considered in nonsite’s online journal (issue 11), the topics will be expanded upon by leading artists, philosophers, and art historians through a series of formal presentations accompanied by engaged responses, as well as two larger panel discussions with curator-moderators. ‚
