Nobody knows how Post Contemporary Art will look like.
Art now mirros the powerstructures of our globalized world. Within its bubble, objects are constantly imported and flipped into commodities to make us feel better.
As Boris Groys tells us instead of artworks, contemporary art now produces "information about art events." While the world is collapsing and the image culture of the internet is becoming our second nature, this constant flow of information...

Jasmine Justice, Backstage 3, detail 3
For her first solo exhibition in Berlin, Spice Clock, at Scotty Enterprises, Jasmine Justice looks at ways to navigate the overabundance of material and information that the world offers up.
She brings her paintings together with non-static configurations: collages, assemblages, drawings, and everyday scraps. The shared space of the objects and paintings becomes a virtual conveyor belt, transporting the information and images from our everyday world into...

IGUANA BEGEISTERT ( Iguana Delighted ) appears in Aether gallery as the extended apparition of a GIF, experiential Diorama. A ‘specialist’ lives inside it’s own semi-transparent terrarium of ideas/work and is projected on (metaphorically and physically) from the outside.

The exhibition title refers to an imaginary location in Joseph Conrad’s Victory (1915), as well as to a 1976 song by Bob Dylan: the connection between music and ocean-going is here germane, as Eva Grubinger’s sculptures intertwine references to concert/club culture (with the attendant pharmacological explorations that have historically attended it) and seafaring.
The exhibition comprises an outdoor sculpture: a huge fender looking like a stranded wale, an...

A lecture performance by Uriel Orlow. 
"Upon the horrific realization that Kfar Sha’ul is in fact Deir Yassin, Orlow set out on a journey to probe the meaning of one painful event in history obliterating the other, in a context of historical intimacy between both… Orlow’s Unmade Film reconstructs a narrative of space, time and historical blind-spots that adds layers of unsettled new meaning to questions of subconscious pain, trauma and suffering in the...
