Ebensperger´s Centre of the World

Die Affinität zum O-Ton „Seltsamen“ ist nicht nur der vielbeschworene Rote Faden der sich durch das Ausstellungsprogramm der Galerie Ebensperger zieht, es ist auch die betont lässige Attitüde von Patrick Ebensperger und Sebastian Hoffmann die sie auf recht angenehme Weise von so manch hochtrabenden Galerie Kollegen unterscheidet.
Umso mehr Grund für uns die beiden in Österreich zu besuchen, wo sie heute, am 23. Juli, ihre neue Dependance mit der Groupshow „Centre of the World“ – in ja genau, Salzburg,
wo sonst, eröffnen!

Non-Binary Portraits

Our friends from Curated by GIRLS will present an exhibition featuring works by Canadian artist Laurence Philomène, at coGalleries. The opening will be this friday, 19th of may and the show will focus on the photographer’s “Non- Binary Portraits” series.
Their aim is to dedicate the show to a diversity of trans & non-binary individuals who are usually under-represented in mainstream media.
An aim we wholeheartedly support!

Following our unofficial Gallery Weekend Guide, and the tips by author David Baum, we bring you the ultimate exit Gallery Weekend groupshow curated by Nicholas Huffstutter and hosted by the infamous Hans Peter Kögeböhn aka HP aka ex-kinzo! But it wouldn´t be complete without the element of music with these guys, so it comes to no surprise that Julija Goyd’s videos for 2raumwohnung, and the remixes by Dj Koze, Ricardo Villalobos, and Chi Thanh will be presented as „cherry on the top element“ of the exhibition!
Wedding here we come!

unofficial gallery weekend guide

How lucky are we, that this year’s Gallery Weekend is just right before a national holiday? Keeping that in mind, it is much easier for us to cut sleep for good and attend as much exhibitions as possible. 47 galleries are officially opening and about the same amount of guides are telling you which ones you shouldn’t miss. But we want to share our must-sees that aren’t part of the offical programm. Enjoy!

Instinct.Berlin #3 im Village Berlin

Das in 2015 von Eric LeRouge und Manuel Moncayo initiierte experimentelle, kollektive Kunstprojekt Instinct.Berlin, versteht sich als Netzwerk mit dem Fokus auf der Diskussion „männlich/Männlichkeiten/maskulin“. Es setzt sich ausserdem aus einer halbjährlichen Kunstausstellung und einem Residency Program zusammen.
Bei der Vernissage am 13. April, werden neben der Performance des Künstlers Arthur Gillet´s auch Spenden für Queers in Tschetschenien gesammelt.
Great Concept, artists and cause!

Pulp. A Short History of the Banished Book, propped up in Shubigi Rao's studio space, photo: Kathrin Leisch


Shubigi Rao, current artist in resident at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, is one of these people who are famous in the sense that you will never forget an encounter with them.
In a whirlwind afternoon she took us on a tour of her fiercely intelligent, inquisitive and poetic mind, an internal library sparkling with ideas and knowledge for building immortal jellyfish, pseudo-neuroscientific laboratories or exploring the mechanisms of knowledge accumulation, storage, and destruction.

Exhibition Highlights: April 2017

The ARTBerlin exhibition guide for this month puts forward the unconventional, obscure and sometimes heavily digestible art: Street art, academic conceptual art and some food for thought on political issues. Enjoy!
