19.00 Memed Erdener – „Beauty of Bigotry“ @ Zilberman Gallery
WHY: Influenced by myths, history of nation states and religions, Memed Erdener incorporates multiple genres of imagemaking in order to reveal corruption and contamination of regimes by also rethinking historical figures. 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 world as well as power dynamics with various references from Eros to Ottoman Divan poetry to contemporary leader figures.

19.00 Malwina Niespodziewana – „Comic Gold Haribo“ @ Maniere Noire
WHY: Malwina Niespodziewana is interested in storytelling in its broadest sense. Her drawings often take their starting points from a text based piece, be it a poem, a fairy tale, an opera libretto, or a biography. „Comic Gold Haribo” is her latest series of 30 drawings on paper, created in 2017, and the last part of a tripartite project started in 2011.Each individual scene is a record of a real situation that may be interpreted by the viewer literally or figuratively. The main character stays for the artist, even though she could represent an entire generation.

19.00 My tether is clipped @ Rockelmann&
WHY: Rockelmann& presents a group show, „My tether is clipped“, which dwells on the questions of mortality and memory. „My tether is clipped“ seeks to understand contemporary rituals of remembrance and how they are represented through the works of three international artists – Yasmin Alt, Zachary Fabri, and Ben Harle – working within the confines of video and sculpture.

19.00 TC McCormack – „The Immense Ventriloquism“ @ nationalmuseum
WHY: In his upcoming 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, achieved through the cadence of the visual phrasing in the films, and in the recalcitrant curation of a series of pattern motifs that act upon the work and space. Accompanying the films is a large suspended print and an arrangement of objects and sculpture illuminated by animated light projection.
