Július Koller’s “Subjektobjekt”

GALERIE MARTIN JANDA, Vienna

Július Koller, Question Mark 1-4, Anti-Happening, 1969.
by

Max L. Feldman

Július Koller’s “anti-happenings” are reflexive practices, acting out a lived situation—relating mostly to Czechoslovakia’s repressive, post–Prague Spring “normalization” period between 1969 and 1987 and the limits of artistic activity at the time. Documenting silly or banal everyday activities, including ping-pong games, taking photographs of groups standing in a question mark... continue reading

ARCOMADRID, Madrid

View of The Future section, ARCOmadrid, 2018.
by

Lorena Munoz-Alonso

This year’s edition of ARCOmadrid embraced a temporal and conceptual gambit: the Future. It was, however, mostly corralled in the eponymous section at the fair, curated by Chus Martínez, Rosa Lleó, and Elise Lammer and featuring works by artists from 20 international galleries, including Nara Roesler, São Paulo; Union Pacific,... continue reading

Sofia Hultén, History in Imaginary Time, 2012.
by

Aoife Rosenmeyer

I just didn’t get Sofia Hultén’s work Pattern Recognition (2017). Several sets of 12 small perforated metal sheets, like those that hang on workshop walls, are arranged in tidy grids. Each set holds a number of tools or objects, short pieces of chain on one, plastic cutting templates on another,... continue reading
