It’s difficult to think of something to say about Art Basel that hasn’t been said before. It’s the behemoth of all art fairs; collectors flock worldwide to purchase artworks in the seven and eight-figure range; it’s where art-market players go to be seen (and if they are truly important, only seen by other VIPS at the preview days). Oh yes, there is also plenty of art too…[read on…]

Exhibition // David Bowie at Martin-Gropius-Bau

Article by AJ Kiyoizumi – in Berlin; Tuesday, Jun. 03, 2014.

David Bowie said that while he was growing up he wanted to be a “trendy person, not a trend.” In a way he succeeded, because he has been anything but a single fleeting trend as one of the most important artists for the past 50 years.

The title of the newest group exhibition at LEAP, You Might Be A Dog, comes from a New Yorker cartoon from the 1990s. In it, one dog sits at a desktop computer, and speaks down to his fellow canine, saying “On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.”…[read on…]

Article by AJ Kiyoizumi – in Berlin; Tuesday, May 20, 2014.

Artist Florian Meisenberg knows that we no longer need to marvel at the software of Siri, and he knows that tweeting is already an aging sport.

The Scottish artist uses her skill to make stories and histories relevant again…[read on…]

The Odyssey has been translated into many languages, but never translated into the language of flowers. This is the work of artist Camille Henrot’s new exhibition, Snake Grass at Schinkel Pavillon. At first, the show doesn’t seem to be from the same artist who created the Silver Lion Award-winning Venice Biennale video, Grosse Fatigue in…[read on…]
