10. BERLIN BIENNALE

Titled We don’t need another hero, the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art is a conversation with artists and contributors who think and act beyond art as they confront the incessant anxieties perpetuated by a willful disregard for complex subjectivities.

Starting from the position of Europe, Germany, and Berlin as a city in dialogue with the world, the 10th Berlin Biennale confronts the current widespread states of collective psychosis. By referencing Tina Turner’s song from 1985, We Don’t Need Another Hero, we draw from a moment directly preceding major geopolitical shifts that brought about regime changes and new historical figures. The 10th Berlin Biennale does not provide a coherent reading of histories or the present of any kind. Like the song, it rejects the desire for a savior. Instead, it explores the political potential of the act of self-preservation, refusing to be seduced by unyielding knowledge systems and historical narratives that contribute to the creation of toxic subjectivities. We are interested in different configurations of knowledge and power that enable contradictions and complications.

Already launched in July 2017, I’m Not Who You Think I’m Not, the public program of the 10th Berlin Biennale, set the tone in a first event that took place in collaboration with the independent educational initiative Each One Teach One (EOTO) e. V. in Berlin. This was followed by a panel discussion in cooperation with the FNB JoburgArtFair in September 2017. The public program disavows assumed beingness and know-hows, perspectives that are often based on existing, constructed social frameworks and their associated speculations about particular subjectivities. Throughout the buildup to the 10th Berlin Biennale until its conclusion in September 2018, the public program creates situations evading these points of view and, at the same time, proposes a refreshed grammar for facing the present.

We don’t need another hero is curated by Gabi Ngcobo with a curatorial team composed of Nomaduma Rosa Masilela, Serubiri Moses, Thiago de Paula Souza, and Yvette Mutumba. It takes place from June 9 to September 9, 2018 at various venues in Berlin.

VENUES
AKADEMIE DER KÜNSTE

Akademie der Künste (Hanseatenweg), photo: Timo Ohler
Founded in 1696 as an academic institution, the Akademie der Künste is one of the oldest cultural institutions in Europe. The Akademie has been formed through a membership process, which endures to this day. In its early history the Akademie der Künste foregrounded learning through teaching and exchange among members. Having established itself as a center for national cultural renewal and enlightenment, it gradually assumed its present-day form as a platform for discussions on art and politics. The 10th Berlin Biennale is interested in positioning sociopolitical and historical narratives in conversation with stories that inhabit the expansive archives of the Akademie, the lineage of membership, and the Brutalist architecture of Werner Düttmann from the late 1950s.

The 10th Berlin Biennale exhibition at the Akademie der Künste starts with a temporary structure that introduces historical and visual elements from two heritage sites and one historical figure: Sanssouci, a summer palace built by Frederick the Great, King of Prussia in Potsdam, DE, between 1745 and 1747; Sans-Souci Palace in Milot in Haiti, built by King Henri of Haiti between 1810 and 1813; and Haitian revolutionary leader, Colonel Jean-Baptiste Sans Souci, an enslaved African who led troops in guerrilla fighting against the French in 1791. This conceptual frame underlines the ideological underpinnings of all historical narratives and the institutions that house them.

KW INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY ART

Founded in the early 1990s, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, KW Institute for Contemporary Art is a space for the production, display, and dissemination of contemporary art. Founded as an association of young people passionate about art, KW and the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art that soon followed were established with the desire to engage with international contemporary art discourses. Throughout the past twenty-six years, KW has been able to construct its own legacy around the people who have shaped its development and those who continue to imagine its future. We don’t need another hero marks an intersection from which we can imagine what the next twenty years of a global-minded contemporary art biennial might look like. The exhibition at this venue begins by introducing viewers to a portrait of a selection of people who have helped define the institution and continues with works that renegotiate inherent hierarchical structures in political spaces, knowledge generating institutions, and personal spaces.

VOLKSBÜHNE PAVILION

The Volksbühne Pavilion is a glass construction located on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz next to the Volksbühne theater’s main building and situated a short walk away from KW. Previously the pavilion hosted artists’ projects as well as the theater’s bookshop and box office. For the 10th Berlin Biennale the pavilion features an artistic project that considers its historical location of the pavilion and includes a malleable installation open to public participation. Here performances and other durational actions take place over the course of the biennial.

ZK/U – CENTER FOR ART AND URBANISTICS

ZK/U – Center for Art and Urbanistics, © Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik, 2017
ZK/U – Center for Art and Urbanistics is located on the grounds of a former railroad depot in Berlin’s neighborhood of Moabit. It was initiated and is run by the artist collective KUNSTrePUBLIK. The collective cooperated with the 5th Berlin Biennale in 2008, in which their temporarily installed project Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum also served as a venue. At the time the “park” was an empty plot of land, a former part of the Berlin Wall in the heart of the city—and the object of intense real-estate speculation. The 10th Berlin Biennale reestablishes a dialogue with the collective by inviting selected artists for extended stays in Berlin to work in the studio spaces that form part of ZK/U’s residency program. In their practices these artists investigate how their politicized bodies respond to the inherent systems of power that define the built city environment. Other projects critically examine varied imagined schemas for natural and constructed environments, both present-day and historic.

HAU Hebbel am Ufer in Berlin-Kreuzberg unites the three spaces HAU1, HAU2, and HAU3 in an international production house for performing arts. At HAU2 the 10th Berlin Biennale presents two evenings dedicated to an artistic research project that investigates the history of Kwaito, a musical genre that originated in Soweto in post-1994 South Africa. The events take place on June 15 and 16, 2018, two specific dates marking the forty-second anniversary of the 1976 Soweto student uprising, an event that serves as an important reference point for the #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall student protest movements that have been ongoing in South Africa since 2016. HAU2 also serves as a site for a temporary exhibition between June 9 and 10 as well as June 13 through June 16, 2018 from 5 to 10 pm.

52nd Art Cologne

The 52nd of Art Cologne shows its strength with a high quality offer at all levels. And she looks good too.


The Art Cologne has rebuilt, now there is also a “Plaza” on Level 2 of Hall 11, where contemporary art has its appearance. The bunks are sorted around in clusters around it, the top dogs naturally the closest to the center. As for the date, the 52nd edition of the “International Art Market” is better off again, the unfortunate overlap last year with the Berlin Gallery Weekend (this time from 27 to 29 April) is dissolved. This will certainly please the shopping-enthusiastic audience, who have already come to preview and vernissage in Cologne. The fact that the Art Brussels continues to take place in parallel (report on this page), can probably not be avoided; There is the usual announcement that the distance between Cologne and Brussels but easy to bridge.

A total of 243 exhibitors, including around 210 galleries from 31 countries, are gathered this time, the once-crowded exhibition spaces of previous years are once and for all before Daniel Hug took over the show as director ten years ago. This is very nicely reflected on Level 3, where the youngest scene is gathered, in the Neumarkt and Collaborations sectors. All in all, there seems to be a lot of DIY, preferably in zoo and anthropomorphic forms.

In a witty way, Ruttkowski; 68 from Cologne introduces Philip Emde’s installation of large-format drawings in his collection of Steiff monkeys; Gabriel von Max ‘weiland “monkeys as art judges” greet as well as the joy of self-reflection in the art on their own walls (prices from 2700 to 7200 euros). At the gallery PPC, Frankfurt, stand the mutated street signs of Martin Wenzel, like the full post, which refers to a path “Horst” under the title “For Inga”, along with curious explanations of the street name (7800 Euro).

Next to St. Stephan, Vienna, Esther Schipper, Berlin, and Jocelyn Wolff, Paris, with works by Isa Melsheimer, from small gouaches to ceramics to the polished stele, a homage to Mies van der Rohe (2000 to 18,000 euros). Baudach, Berlin, and Van Horn, Cologne, have entered into a cool alliance in matters of “light and shadow, black and white”; Van Horn contributes, among other things, one of the “snake” ceramics of Markus Karstieß (15,500 euros), Baudach a mirror “moon” of the gifted hobbyist Björn Dahlem (40,000 euros).

Stand: Ropac, Halle 11.2


Contemporary art in the best condition
The hall level 2 with the contemporary art is in the best condition. It shows impressively how Art Cologne positions itself as the leading art fair in Germany. Quite for the upper middle class, the clientele is accessible to six-digit height; nothing new in the Rhineland, only the corresponding offer has to be there. Cologne is loyal to what counts and has an international reputation for gallery owners and dealers – and presents works that suit them.

For example, at Klüser, Munich, there are also portrait drawings by Alex Katz (28,500 euros), or Ropac presents funny, completely new works by Erwin Wurm in his stand, stones on their feet. Hauser & Wirth make an appearance for the abstract artist Mary Heilmann, born in 1940 ($ 75,000), and Sprüth / Magers have, in addition to a recent knitting pattern by Rosemarie Trockel and current works by Thomas Ruff, an unprimed feminist statement by Astrid Klein from 2001-02 brought along, with the very true lettering “We never advance one step beyond ourselves” (35 000 euro).

What you would not have expected is that in the offer of Galerie Neu, Berlin, there are drawings by Yves Saint Laurent, among them a magical sheet from 1970/72, on which a “Zizi” is posing, in red and black ink (22 000 euros). Also a good surprise for Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler, Berlin, is the steel sculpture “Königsberger Gitter” created by the collective Slaves and Tartars. In addition to its visibly beautiful shape, it also requires some spiritual deepening (35,000 euros). Slaves and Tartars had just an exhibition in the Westfälische Kunstverein in Münster, they will soon be seen in the Dresden Albertinum: cool art for thought! This is finally an option again, as shown by Andreas Schmitten, Johann König, Berlin, for example with the table sculpture “Festung” from 2017 (22,000 euros); Schmitten has also arrived at level 11.1, namely at Schönewald, Düsseldorf, which otherwise conveys more established works. In general, the clear demarcations between galleries and the art trade are beginning to dissipate

Chinese artist Paris auction at €6.9m

Chinese artist Sanyu tops Paris auction at €6.9m

Sanyu’s Pot of Flowers painting sold for a hammer price of €6.9m (£6.1m) at Aguttes on December 18.
The latest sale of Asian paintings held by Aguttes in Paris was led by a c.1930 work by the Chinese artist Sanyu (1901-66).

Pot of Flowers or Peonies, a signed 3ft x 2ft 5in (92 x 73.5cm) oil on canvas depicting a flowering plant, was consigned from a private collection in the Ile de France region.

It was appearing on the market for the first time and was estimated at €3m-€4m.

The work is listed in the artist’s catalogue raisonné and featured in a Sanyu exhibition in the Netherlands approximately 70 years ago.

The artist (also known as San Yu) was born in Sichuan in 1901 and studied in Japan before moving to Paris in 1920. He exhibited regularly at the Salons d’Automne during his lifetime but interest has also been raised more recently after an extensive retrospective of his work was held at the Musée Guimet in 2004.

Pot of Flowers was deemed an attractive example of his work and it duly brought a number of bidders at the sale held at Hotel Drouot on December 18 and was finally knocked down at €6.9m (£6.1m).

FIAC Paris 2017

Foire internationale d’art contemporain

For several days each year, Paris becomes the world capital of contemporary art with the FIAC, the International Contemporary Art Fair. A veritable institution recognized worldwide, the FIAC is an opportunity for the public to discover the latest developments in contemporary art, through works by some of the most famous artists in the world.

In total, some 1,500 artists show their work for the 70,000 spectators to see in the aisles of the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais, the Tuileries Gardens, the Musée Eugène Delacroix and Place Vendôme.

The FIAC is also the occasion for an artist residing in France, or of French origin, to be awarded the prestigious Marcel Duchamp Prize, which brings with it international recognition. Like all fairs, the FIAC is also a marketplace where the works of art change hands and professionals meet. Each year, there is much speculation in the press about the price of various works of art, which contributes to establishing the legitimacy of the artists.


Tout Paris
The capital is the setting each year for the organisation of major cultural, sport and festive events… So Parisians, French and tourists meet on the quays of Paris for Paris Plages, Nuit Blanche, the Paris Marathon, the Roland Garros Grand Slam tournament, the Tour de France , the fireworks of July 14th at the Trocadero, the LGBT Pride March, the Techno Parade … A varied program throughout the year!

Nacktfotos zeigen In China Freiheiten

Die Kunst von Ren Hang aus Peking ist nicht einfach Provokation: Zu sehen ist, zwischen den Pixeln, ein Kampf um die künstlerische Freiheit, um die Freiheit, der sein zu dürfen, der man ist. Ohne Scham halten die Menschen, die der 28-Jährige fotografiert hat, ihre Genitalien ins Bild, sie spreizen die Beine, spucken.

Das sind die Bilder von Ren Hang – viel mehr als nur Provokation:

Fast immer ohne Mimik schneiden sie sich ihre Hose so auf, dass der Penis herausfällt, legen sich eine Tulpe so auf den Unterkörper, dass es aussieht, als würde sie der Vagina entwachsen. Ohne Lächeln und ohne Zweifel, regungslos ziehen sie sich aus und zeigen ihre Körper.


Dabei werden auch immer wieder Geschlechterrollen in Frage gestellt, nicht jeder ist hier traditionell Mann oder traditionell Frau. Ein Foto zeigt einen schmalen, weiblichen Körper – doch zwischen den Beinen lässt sich ein Penis erahnen.

Ren Hang fotografiert seit neun Jahren, seit jeher ist er der Fotografieszene bekannt als ein depressiver, scheuer und der Öffentlichkeit fernbleibender Künstler. Er gibt kaum Interviews – und wenn er doch mal mit einem Journalisten spricht, lautet seine Antwort auf fast alle Fragen: “Ich weiß es nicht – und es ist mir egal.”

Auf anderen Fotos balancieren die Menschen am Abgrund der Seele, sie tauchen tief unter in Badewannen, beißen sich aneinander fest, rauchen viel, lassen den Blick schweifen über die Dächer der Stadt.


Ren Hangs Fotos sind brutal direkt. Nicht, weil sie Körperstellen zeigen, die sonst von Kleidung bedeckt sind. Sondern, weil sie auf kompromisslose Weise die bestehende Ordnung stören. Sie wirken, als wolle der Künstler schreien: So sind wir halt, wir Menschen – verschieden, übermütig, immer in Versuchung! Und, übrigens: Es gibt keinen Grund zur Annahme, dass wir verkehrt sind.

Art Basel in Hong Kong 2017

Our weekly edition from Art Basel in Hong Kong, including news, analysis, interviews and live reporting from the fair

Hong Kong’s ascendancy as an international art capital is undeniable, and we’ve got the high-profile fairs and events to prove it. Particularly since the launch of Art Basel Hong Kong in 2013, the city has welcomed more and more major art-world players to our shores, adding to an already vibrant local scene in which dozens of galleries exhibit the work of artists from near and far. If you’re keen to start planning your 2018 art adventures, look no further than our list of this year’s most anticipated art fairs.

When: 23–25 March 2016

Art Basel Hong Kong, the city’s biggest art fair, returns once again this March. Brace yourself for the busiest three days of the art world’s entire year, featuring hundreds of exhibitors, not to mention a similar number of cultural events around the city planned to coincide with Art Basel. Newly added to this year’s programme is the ‘Kabinett’ sector, which Art Basel Miami Beach veterans will be familiar with. Participating galleries will be each presenting a curated project in a dedicated area within their booth, which can feature thematic exhibitions, solo shows, and more. Tickets start at HK$180; buy them here.

Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, 1 Harbour Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong; +852 3128 8288, artbasel.com

It seems a very brief run for such a mighty production effort. This coming week, some 242 galleries from 24 countries across the world will be shipping works of art and people thousands of miles, designing booths, chivvying their artists, organising, curating, sending volleys of tempting publicity to clients. Not to mention the investment that entails. Meanwhile the fair’s organisers will have worked all year to create the framework and apparatus for the galleries’ various activities: everything from lighting to talks programmes and triggering a giant publicity machine.

All for a few short days in these strange modern-day souks. The shorter hours are a great relief to most galleries. Most sales are made, fast and furious, in the first (preview) day or even the first few hours: after that, galleries are effectively putting on a free show for the public whose (substantial) admission moneys go to the fair’s organisers, not to the galleries themselves. Last year a record 70,000 of the general public thronged the Hong Kong convention centre to gaze at the riches on display.

Yes, it’s a fine showcase, but the price points are extremely high and sales in the later days are considerably more sparse, often non-existent. The big buyers have already flown off like migrating birds, while weary gallery staff wait out the last couple of days with aching legs and smile-muscles, doing little more than dust and guard the work.

Though the rewards are great, it’s a risky proposition for all but the very biggest names: not every gallery makes enough sales to cover the mighty costs of attending an event like Art Basel. But the influence of art fairs stretches far beyond their time span and location. While their opening hours get shorter, fairs are looking to extend their reach into their host cities, not only during the fair’s run but around the year.

Chinesische Kulturfestival in Deutschland Berlin

Chinafest 2014 Berlin

Um in Reaktion auf den Appell der von der chinesischen und deutschen Regierung unterzeichneten Freundschaftsvereinbarung über das chinesisch – deutsche Kulturjahr 2011 – 2012 im Rahmen der Vielfältigkeit der internationalen Kultur den Raum für den Dialog zwischen China und Deutschland zu erweitern, zu fördern und zu bereichern sowie um den Raum für einen Austausch der zeitgenössischen Kultur und Kunst zu entwickeln, das gegenseitige Verständnis und das Aneinandererfreuen zu intensivieren, einen Grundstein für die gegenseitige Anerkennung der Menschen und Kulturen zu legen, wird das deutsch – chinesische Kulturfestival 2011 Berlin für 9 Tage im August 2011 in Berlin veranstaltet.

Zielsetzung des Kulturfestivals ist, den internationalen Austausch und die internationale Zusammenarbeit durch Kultur und Kunst zu fördern, um einen aktiven Beitrag für den Frieden und zu einem Brückschlag sowie zum kulturellen Verständnis zwischen den Völkern zu leisten.

Die Eigenheit des Kulturfestivals liegt darin, die traditionelle und moderne Kultur gleichzeitig in einer dreidimensionalen Form der Kulturübermittlung und des Austausches ertönen zu lassen; es werden zwei große „Module“, nämlich „Tradition“ und „Modern“, und ein „Forum der deutschen und chinesischen Kultur- und Kunstexperten“ errichtet.

Die Schwerpunkt des „Moduls der Tradition“ liegt auf dem gegenseitigen Kennenlernen der Kulturgeschichte, der Volksbräuche und des Brauchtums beider Länder sowie deren Verständnis. Es finden zahlreiche Veranstaltungen statt, wie „Internationale Messe des Austausches über Scherenschnitt und Schattenspiel“, „Internationale Ausstellung für Exlibrissammlungen“, „Ausstellung des deutschen und chinesischen traditionellen Kunsthandwerks“, „Internationales Kinderchor- Festival“, „Deutsch – chinesisches Festival der Sinfonien“, „Chinesisches Schattenspieltheater“ sowie „Internationales Volkstanzshowfestival“ etc.

Der Schwerpunkt des „modernen Moduls“ liegt auf dem Dialog der Völker und der Präsentation der deutschen und chinesischen zeitgenössischen und modernen Musik, des Tanzes sowie der visuellen Kunst vor dem Hintergrund der Globalisierung. Es finden verschiedene Veranstaltungen wie „Internationale Moderntanzshow“, „Internationales Elektromusikfestival“ „Deutsch-chinesisches Rockmusikfestival“, „Internationales Kinderfilmfestival“ statt.

Es ist ein sehr imposantes internationales Volkskulturfestival und das größte interaktive Austauschfestival der Volkskultur. Die Teilnehmer sind aktive Kultur- und Kunstgruppen verschiedener Bereiche aus China und Deutschland sowie anderer Ländern. Die Anzahl der Zuschauer wird auf voraussichtlich 200.000 bis 300.000 geschätzt. Dieses Festival wird von den deutschen und chinesischen Regierungen und der Unesco tatkräftig unterstützt, die entsprechenden Führungsspitzen und Vertreter werden zur Begrüßung und Unterstützung vor Ort sein.

Dieses Kulturfestival wird den umfangreichen Austausch der deutschen und chinesischen Kultur sowie den der Wirtschaft enorm fördern, die Freundschaft zwischen der deutschen und chinesischen Kultur- und Kunstbranche vertiefen und wird auf Grund seiner Autorität, künstlerischen Qualität und seinem Einfluss ein großartiges Ereignis werden.
