On the Complexity of the Visual Arts
As a rule, one associates the expression “lateral recovery position” with “first aid.” It designates primarily an urgent life-saving measure. As the title of an exhibition, however, it suggests that the works of art being shown shake up the viewer, expand his or her lungs, and stimulate his or her consciousness.[more...]

The Confession of a Comical Saint

A Video Installation by Isolde Loock and Wolfgang Stephan Kissel
To this very day, Chekhovian theater has not forfeited any of his worldwide fascination. For decades, many Soviet intellectuals lived with the characters of the seagull or the cherry orchard, even identified themselves with them. After the collapse of the communist system, more and more doubt was placed on familiar visual habits and interpretations, the complexity of dramas was rediscovered. The extent to which the undecidable ambivalence and the symbolic and/or absurd elements suspend a drama’s realism remains controversial both in the West as well as the East.[more...]

Records and Covers by Artists
Comprising more than eight hundred artist’s records and other sound carriers, the exhibition Vinyl—Records and Covers by Artists is presenting the visual and sonant facets of a unique visual arts medium. It includes all of the important art currents of the twentieth-century, from the early avant-garde movements and the main phase of Sound Art in the sixties and seventies, all the way to today’s trends. The union of the LP as a sound carrier and its cover as an image carrier opened up a diverse, hitherto unexplored creative field to visual artists. Transgressing the boundaries of conventional art forms, they took the liberty of exploring the creative possibilities of music, sound, and noises, of speech, voice, and instruments and their manipulation without traditional musical training.[more...] The exhibition catalog is published.
