Eastwards Prospectus, 25.01.–24.03.2018
Borderline Relation exhibition showcases, on both floors of the gallery, works by Marieta Chirulescu, Felipe Cohen, Svenja Deininger, Caroline Duchatelet, Vlatka Horvat, Željko Jerman, Ivan Moudov, Ulay, Ignacio Uriarte and Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt. The exhibition offers an opportunity to reflect on the relations between artistic practices that emerged in different temporal, geopolitical, social and economic contexts. This can affect the perception of the concept of a work of art and, above all, the conditions of production in which it is created. This is the reason why the exhibition brings together artists of different generations, some of them being already very famous and holding acclaimed historical artistic positions, while others are emerging of younger generations.
“Through the various artistic approaches involved, Borderline Relation exhibition presents intimate, individual stories that lie behind elements specific to contemporary artworks, and guide us to [...]

Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, 19.01–18.03.2018
Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb, presents I AM THE MOUTH with works from Art Collection Telekom. The corporate Art Collection Telekom was initiated by Deutsche Telekom in 2010 and comprises today of some 200 art works by about 60 artists from around 15 countries.

The artworks in the exhibition are the mouth of a whole generation that wants to shape its own future and take responsibility for it. The works are telling the stories, concerns, hopes and visions of [...]
Cantor Arts Center: 07.02.–30.04.2018
Featuring artists from twelve different countries, this exhibition presents a wide range of creative responses to photography as an artistic medium and a communicative tool uniquely suited to modern media landscapes and globalized economies. The artists in this exhibition resist the impulse to “document” or “photograph anew” the world immediately around them. Instead, they employ a wide range of materials – from prints and drawings to photocopies and audio installations – to highlight the ways in which photography shapes our understanding of history as well as current events.

Fondation Louis Vuitton, 11.10.2017–05.03.2018
Organised by Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the “Being Modern: MoMA in Paris” draws together a superb and far-reaching representation of the highly important artworks that MoMA has acquired since its founding in 1929. Presented from 11 October 2017 to 5 March 2018, the exhibition includes masterworks ranging from the birth of modern art through trends and styles such as American abstraction, Pop art and Minimalism to the most contemporary art.
A multidisciplinary selection of 200 works will occupy the whole of the Fondation’s building. The works are drawn from all six of the MoMA’s curatorial departments, reflecting the history of the institution and the choices it had made in building its collecting.
The exhibition responds to two objectives: to show a significant body of MoMA’s great collection in Paris, and to evoke the more fluid and interdisciplinary installations that visitors to MoMA [...]

Alles geschieht auf Reisen zum ersten Mal.
(Matthias Politycki 2017)
Gegen die Strömung. Reise ins Ungewisse zeigt 17 internationale Positionen der zeitgenössischen Kunst, die sich mit dem Reisen als existentiellem Wagnis auseinandersetzen. Jeder Aufbruch ist mit Risiken verbunden, ist ein Aufbegehren gegen das Alte und Gewohnte, gegen Beharrungskräfte, die einen zurückhalten oder begrenzen. Jeder Anfang einer Reise setzt den Bruch mit dem Alltag voraus. Er benötigt einen starken, von Innen oder Außen kommenden Impuls, das bisherige Leben zumindest auf Zeit zu verlassen und sich auf den Weg zu machen – gegen alle Widerstände und trotz des ungewissen Ausgangs.
Aufbrüche zu Reisen jenseits der Erholungsindustrie: Der Anstoß dafür, sich auf unbekanntes Terrain zu begeben, auf Reisen zu gehen ohne zu wissen, ob man als der- oder dieselbe – wenn überhaupt – wiederkehren wird, kann sehr [...]
