Superficiality is the new dialogue

Kjetil Røed: Working Through the Past

CONCEPT ART: A concept-oriented micro-art historical work that re-evaluates the value of art

Nostalgic outsiders

: Three female documentary photographers – Lisette Model, Diane Arbus and Nan Goldin – exhibit their contemporary photographs of marginalized and completely ordinary human imperfections.

A perverted artist portrait?

Beatrice Behn and René Gebhardt: The Artist & The Pervert

: The documentary The Artist & The Pervert does not tell much about Georg Friedrichs Haas' microtonal contemporary music, but all the more about his sadomasochistic relationship with his wife.

Mikkel Bolt: The metamorphosis of contemporary art

: The metamorphoses of contemporary art are perhaps too interesting.

Mathematical art

: In the art market, originality and uniqueness are an artist's foremost capital. But what happens when an algorithm can calculate these properties better than the artist himself? 

Five scenes from Berlin

Julian Rosefeldt: Manifest

: Does the series of manifestos throughout history have validity today? After hearing "chameleon" Cate Blanchett quote historical manifestos via 13 different characters, the answer is yes. 

The manifesto as an art form

: The film installation Manifesto, which is shown at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin these days, addresses some of the many paradoxes that cling to the manifesto genre – both in its political and artistic formations.
