Border Matters: Susanne und Claus Rottenbacher

Mallorca, ein Freitag Anfang Juni, die Abendsonne brennt, während wir uns langsam einen Berg hinauf, durch das hübsche und beschauliche Andratx schlängeln. Im Süden des Tramuntana Gebirges der Insel, liegt Andratx etwa eine halbe Stunde von Palma de Mallorca entfernt. Wir sind auf dem Weg zur Kunsthalle und Artist Residenz CCA Andratx, um das Opening der diesjährigen Sommer Ausstellung BORDER MATTERS des Berliner Künstler-Paars Susanne und Claus Rottenbacher zu besuchen.
Davor haben wir die beiden in Ihrem Haus in Berlin, zu einem ausführlichen Gespräch getroffen!

Top 5 Exhibitions July 2018

Berlin gets even more colourful than usual. It’s Christopher Street Day (28th July) and because of we all care (don’t we, Melania?), let’s celebrate pride! To start the month and get into the mood, make yourself to fall in love with Xiyadie’s erotic and queer paper-cutting art, then check out Bert Houbrechts photos in Moabit, and keep on the move to Grit Richter and Axel Pahlavi shows. As a finish, we feature new energy and inputs coming from the graduate’s students of the Art & Design department of the University of Applied Sciences Europe, Campus Berlin. Enjoy!


Joining Dots – The Benetton Art Trail

At the end of May we travelled from Treviso to the beautiful seaport city of Trieste at the northernmost end of the Mediterranean Sea to visit the opening of the “Join the dots / Unire le distanze“ show, an Imago Mundi exhibition that features 40 collections. Imago Mundi is a non-profit, democratic and global project promoted by the Luciano Benetton Collection that had its inauguration in August 2013 at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia during the 55th Biennale di Venezia. Since then Imago Mundi exhibitions have toured Italy and the world, always promoting a different country-specific focus as seen by the participating artists of the country concerned. “Join the dots / Unire le distanze“ is in short about embracing the potential of art to bridge distances.

New York City Top 5 Exhibitions in June

From the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, including the mind-blowing rooftop installation by Hama Bhaba, to the super-hyped Takahashi Murakami at Galerie Perrotin, to the New Photography at MoMA with a vague but totally working concept, the choice is yours.
The summer so far has a lot to offer for Art Lovers in New York. On top, our NY Editor Caroline Eleanor Absher got excited about the strong pair of female identifying artists addressing racism and social injustice at Chapter 249, rounded up nicely by the intense works by Zoe Leonard at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Top 5 Exhibitions June 2018

June promises to be hot (outside and) inside galleries and art spaces in Berlin. It’s time for the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, and it is also when the significant summer exhibitions start at Helmut Newton Foundation, with Carla Sozzani’s photo collection, or the highlights of the last 50 years of Michelangelo Pistoletto works, at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura. Apart from that, in Düsseldorf, you can explore how Artificial Intelligence is influencing art and society. And there is more.
Yes, it is busy. So, let’s go!



Vartan Avakian. All that is seen and unseen

It comes as no surprise that the artist Vartan Avakian has developed a one can nearly say fixation on the materiality of data. He was born in Byblos the coastal (former) Phoenician city in nowadays Lebanon, that thought of itself as the oldest of all cities, founded by the God El at the beginning of all time. If you combine the ancient history of this nerve centre of time, and then imagine a boy with an artist mind growing up in this environment all his works and his perception of matter fall into place and even seem like a logical product. For his show „All that is seen and unseen“ he is focusing on books in combination with the concept of as Palimpsests.

Guglielmo Castelli at Künstlerhaus Bethanien

As you might know, ARTBerlin has a thing for paintings! So we were fortunate to meet Italian artist Guglielmo Castelli, whose works – and especially the characters in them – carried our minds off to darker, but also more poetical dimensions. We talked with Guglielmo about how studying theatrical scenography influenced him, his inspiration, transgressing the rules and also how his time in Berlin affected on his works.
