by

Ingo Niermann

Earlier this summer, after a public talk between Elena Sorokina and my wife, Chus Martínez, the three of us were invited by Eduard Mayoral of Galeria Mayoral to dinner. We hadn’t yet reached dessert when Eduard asked us what to make of Salvador Dalí. They were about to open a... continue reading
View of Ana Jotta’s “Abans que me n’oblidi (Before I forget),” ProjecteSD, Barcelona, 2016.
by

Mariana Canepa Luna

While it has been widely exhibited in her native Portugal, Ana Jotta’s work hasn’t been presented in depth to the Barcelona public since the early 1990s.(1) So this mini-survey of her production from 1980 to the present, framed as part of the Barcelona Gallery Weekend, is overdue. “Abans que me... continue reading

This exhibition is one of the first since Harun Farocki’s unexpected death in July. In the absence of the artist himself, “4 films from 1967 to 1997” pays tribute to the man—chosen by his partner and collaborator, Antje Ehmann—who has been perhaps among the most influential artists and filmmakers of the second half... continue reading
Andrea Büttner’s “Tische”

NOGUERASBLANCHARD, Barcelona

View of Andrea Büttner, “Tische,” NoguerasBlanchard, Barcelona, 2014.
by

Max Andrews and Mariana Canepa Luna

Pursuing a clearly spiritual approach within a Christian cultural and ethical context, Andrea Büttner is one of the few contemporary artists who could plausibly cite St. Francis of Assisi, the twelfth-century Catholic friar who committed himself to a life of poverty, as a key influence. Her work Tische [Tables] (2013),... continue reading
