    One of the things I will definitely miss about NY are the Lower East Side Sundays. The big galleries of Chelsea and midtown are closed on the day of the Lord (for obvious reasons), so the bigger and smaller names of art journalism (and we) are free to join the buzzing residents of Chinatown in a lovely afternoon art...

    This week it was especially hard to leave home and go see things, but it was usually worth the effort. So if you stayed at home this week, chances were you did miss something, have a look.

    The work of Riccardo Benassi encourages slow looking and acute observations of the surrounding environment. He works primarily with installation and sound, and his book projects pick up the residue of his time-sensitive and spacial works and re-present the pieces in a new way, making connections between the temporal...

    The grey beginning of a new year seems like an appropriate time to look back at some of the best books spotted within the last year, especially now that you have probably cashed in on all of the returnable and unwanted gifts received over the holidays. I know the money is burning a hole in your pocket.   The...

    In summer 2010 we started a blog feature highlighting the very different protagonists of the most current and independent projects of the Berlin art scene. Through a handful of interviews, we got to introduce to some of our Bpigs spaces as well as other special guests. On some occasions we conducted group interviews...
