The concluding event of the Now, How? series explores the nexus of the mundane and the transcendent. The event’s title, “Everyday Luxuries”, is derived from the marketing term used to characterise service economy products like manicures and massages as aspirational commodities available to a mass market. Such luxuries quickly become requirements for workers, particularly female workers, as increasing proportions of the service and cultural economy centre...

Something in this exhibition is not right. While everything around us is sinking into chaos, opportunities for art arise from sheer impenetrability. But in the same way that many people mistrust commentators and fact checkers, and instead prefer to believe in their own truths, artists too are playing cunning games with their audiences’ perception, if not fears, and with their collective fantasies. The images, objects and videos in this exhibition...

“Bad Intentions” seeks to modestly contribute a tiny voice to hopefully echo into a massive abyss. The title is a reference to the good intentions of ‘artivism’, and where they lead to: the disappearance of both art and activism. The exhibition does so by staging an absurd tear between art and artist, in the hope that a gaze into the tear might enable a distinction between art and politics. The artists selected for this group exhibition are Jewish-Israeli...

Alexander Wagner will show a new series of small works in enamel, made specially in response to Farbvision’s tiled walls. These intimate abstract compositions at once mimic and combat the decorative grid upon which they are installed.

Schütt, Nadja: Relic I (white), 140 x 180 cm, relief print, spraypaint on paper, 2017
The works of the exhibiting artists - Yasmin Alt, Nadja Schütt and Leonard Traynor- have devoted themselves to decay and chaos. Between the poles of utopia and dystopia, their works search for possible remains and relicts of civilization. The artists analyze figures, media and technology, as well as architecture and everyday objects in very individual manners.
In a cultural anamnesis, they explore through the different media the chaos that surrounds us,...

Two artists got married in Denmark, on an island in a town called Ærøskøbing. This is the starting point of the Cold Case project, an experimental archive research based on an autoethnographic approach. A cold case is a file type without a definitive solution, a kind of phantasmagorical documentation that’s being kept open for reexamination through time. The appearance of witnesses, retained evidence or other, new activities related to the case may reopen...

Memed Erdener: Conclusion and Then Rationalization, 2017. Acrylic and oil pastel on canvas, 110 x 160 cm

Consisted of paintings—oil pastel and acrylic on paper and canvas—and objects with found materials such as iron, brass, prescription lens, plastic fork, Beauty of Bigotry engages discourse around the constructive and destructive aspects of...

The film HAUS 209 (House 209) tells the story of a woman who is used in a dystopian experiment. The woman is a prisoner in a clinic in a crisis-torn country. Scientists research the possibility of travelling to the “other world” with the help of radioactive capsules. Test subjects are sent to the “beyond” to get advice from the “voices” of how to solve humanity’s problems.
The film is constructed of still photos from various stays at the HELIOS-clinic for...

In this exhibition, TC McCormack considers how our man-made structures exist in and out of time, how the course of history continually reappraises objects, resources and even nature.
The Immense Ventriloquism has a particular rhythmic structure, which is achieved through the cadence of the visual phrasing in the films, and in the recalcitrant...
