    One thing is certain when you walk into "The Disappearance" at Galerie Judin. Alisa Margolis can clearly paint. This is definitely a painting show for painters. But her works delve deeper than the lusciously colorful surfaces of explosive paint. They appear to say a lot in their silence.  At...

    Last week Autocenter sent us on a virtual trip to a Hong Kong nightclub, and Axel Obiger made us feel like we are in a twisted highschool gym. Galerie Zink surprised us with some delicious prosciutto, and we surprised ourselves with getting out of the bed on a Sunday for the opening at Galerie Neu.

    Things we did not miss to see last week: Bigrit Brenner's guilt-trip installations at Galerie EIGEN + ART, Marianne Thörmer's shiny metal pieces at Das Gift, Gerhard Winkler's soup ingredients at Kuckei + Kuckei, and Falk Haberkorn's hastily rendered men at KLEMM'S.

    „This Sweetness Outside of Time. Objects, Books and Films from 1959 to 2014“ is an extensive retrospective addressing all aspects of Dorothy Iannone’s opus, focusing on one of the most unusual women artists of the 20th/21st century.

    Our tip #1 is to go out immediately, lie on the grass in a comfortable position (we suggest the one in Falk Haberkorn's drawing – see above), and soak up the sunshine until the moon replaces the sun. The next best thing to do is to nurture your mind with art and music, preferably at the places we recommend...

    It is around this time of the year (Armory time!) where you pack your suitcase full of giddy anticipation to start on the roller coaster art fair ride through the Basels, the Friezes, and the Biennals that will eventually strand you on the South Beach in December, smeared lipstick, heels in hand, sporting a full blown...

    A lot of things had to be missed last week due to the quantity of events. It is even possible that  there were more openings than techno parties during the weekend (?!). Plus points to the galleries getting real busy lately; we were happy to see the art scene dominating.
