VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Berlin

Kara Walker, Fall Frum Grace, Miss Pipi's Blue Tale, 2011.
by

Filipa Ramos

There are occasions in which the multifaceted shape of time becomes obvious. Occasions in which the concentration of similar initiatives, aimed at similar audiences and presenting similar outcomes, attest to the different moments in which organizations, individuals, and their mentalities are situated: how, despite coexisting simultaneously, collective mindsets aren’t contemporary... continue reading
“transmediale festival 2018: face value”

HAUS DER KULTUREN DER WELT, Berlin

Larry Achiampong and David Blandy, Finding Fanon (Part Three), 2016.
by

Patrick J. Reed

To my left the casual love of mismatched hearts is expiring. The American woman says, “you’re sad,” and the Frenchman nods. She tells him to calm down. It is breathtakingly awkward. They resign themselves to stillness until a grinding electronic drone heralds their graceless end. She makes a break for... continue reading

Katinka Bock’s “Smog”

MEYER RIEGGER, Berlin

View of Katinka Bock's "Smog," Meyer Riegger, Berlin, 2017.
by

Simone Menegoi

Katinka Bock compares works to words and exhibitions to texts.(1) The analogy explains the relationship between the two aspects of the Franco-German artist’s work: the sculptures, silver prints, and occasional films, on the one hand, and the sophisticated displays that she creates out of them, whose value is greater than... continue reading
