Nadja Verena Marcin - OPHELIA
Stadtgalerie in Saarbrücken, Germany. 2019

OPHELIA is an interdisciplinary performance that is presented in the Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken as a live action and subsequently as a video installation. It reflects the human-induced destruction of nature and creates references to art, literature and science. Dressed in "Ophelia's" dress and equipped with a diving device, Nadja Verena Marcin will climb into an aquarium and try under water to read the text "The Werld" by Daniil Kharms about human perception.

Igor Simić - WELTSCHMERZ 
at Galerie Beckers, Frankfurt

The exhibition WELTSCHMERZ shows new works by Serbian artist Igor Simic, which he created in connection with his iOS game Golf Club: Wasteland. For this game he and his award-winning gaming and film company Demagog Studio developed a whole world — a storyline with characters and various landscapes — in a post-apocalyptic scenario. The eerie atmosphere of the carefully crafted visual scenery is accompanied by slow paced, nostalgic, sometimes almost chilling music that evokes the feeling of longing for something lost.

REFRACTED REALITIES at VIDEONALE.17

In optics, “refraction” refers to the bending of a beam of light, a change in direction which occurs at the moment when it passes from one medium to another. Through refraction, the light wave alters course, changing the way we perceive the objects it illuminates in the process. This optical deviation requires us to repeatedly correct our gaze, comparing the beginning and end points of our perception with reality, and bringing the object we see clearly into focus. In its figurative sense, refraction refers to a critical reflection on the means and channels of visualization, and by extension the possibility of a rearticulation of our view of things – how they are, were, or apparently always have been.

Critics’ Pick: Vienna by Nicole Büsing + Heiko Klaas

The group show “Antarctica. An Exhibition on Alienation” was presented in Vienna during the past winter season. Departing from a note written by the Italian cult director Michelangelo Antonioni referring to a potential glacier melting in the Antarctica and a hint to a film, the two curators from the Kunsthalle Wien, Vanessa Joan Müller and Nicolaus Schafhausen, conceived an exhibition on the topic of alienation and contemporary art. The focus was on the latest contemporary photography and video art by the younger generation of artists.

Expanding Bauhaus.
New Reflections on the Bauhaus Movement in Time-Based Media Art
/ Goethe Institute Netherlands

A screening series selected by Elke Kania (Cologne), Julia Sökeland (Hamburg) and Ludwig Seyfarth (Berlin)

With its combination of various arts such as painting, photography film, architecture, fashion, product and interior design and textile art, the Bauhaus is still considered the epitome of a technologically advanced modernity. Last but not least, the attempt to create the whole society aesthetically, inspired many artists worldwide.

Johan Grimonprez

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of realities.

Christoph Faulhaber: Revolution & Architecture

With "Revolution & Architecture" Christoph Faulhaber (* 1972 in Osnabrück, lives in Hamburg) conceives, builds, designs and opens a whole series of very different rooms in the Kunsthalle Osnabrück. In order to discover the revolutionary aspect of these "architectures", one has to look at the social implications of interior design in general. In the forum the visitor then enters Faulhaber's cinematic autobiography "Every Picture is an Empty Picture" as in the eye of the cyclone: The work is split into 15 individual films and surrounds the visitor in a circle.
