Cevdet Erek at AKINCI

In Faça, Cevdet Erek will present four new works, the most recent of which gives the title to the exhibition. His new work at AKINCI further develops the conceptual and formal relationships in his work Rulers & Rhythm Studies... continue reading

Never Never Land at EOA.PROJECTS

Where activism is curtailed, censorship is widespread and overt social critique is frowned upon, the rebellion inherent in humour is particularly valuable and powerful.

REVIEWS

Eija-Liisa Ahtila’s “Studies on the Ecology of Drama 1”
GALLERI CHARLOTTE LUND, Stockholm
Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Studies on the Ecology of Drama 1, 2014.

by KIM WEST

Human beings are destroying the planet. If we want to save it we must therefore make inhuman art. Arguments to this effect seem to have enjoyed some currency in recent curatorial practice.

But while for years organized crime has spread violence, the disappearances... continue reading

Mean Girls: Keren Cytter and “Vengeance”

by MELISSA GRONLUND

“I’m so excited,” a young woman says, about an advertising meeting that would make your eyes water with boredom. “Don’t worry, that’ll pass,” her older colleague replies. It’s a flat cliché, and he delivers it with a withering smile of self-congratulation. The woman appears put down, but you get the feeling that’s... continue reading
