dontmiss the refreshing universum von daniel turner

to bring the very simple things to the space and make it become the center of the viewer's attention is a quite poetic but risky adventure!!! daniel turner does it in a very easy and elegant way!!! the visual composition is just stunning but it hast some hidden secrets to be discovered underneath its apparently beauty!!! its reduction is powerful but what make it so striking is that it could vanish at any next second!!!

das passagen- werk/the arcades project

das passagen- werk/the arcades project 

walter benjamin created with the arcades project a body of work which has been seeing as an brilliant artistic endeavor of his. the assembly of historical text containing comments, anecdotes, magazine articles and other literary miscellaneous brings the reader to a world of socio-political, literary curiosities of the parisian society of the 20's. and somehow its analyses still, in many cases, very contemporary.

surfaces and values

flo maak - Surface Interference Study (after Courbet), © 2013
to be able to really touch beyond the surface of our history and our stories is necessary, sometimes, to observe and recreate surfaces!

flo maak doest it in his latest work group! and they are refreshing for the eyes and for the brain. refreshing because there are not only brilliant executed works but because they contain stunning compositions loaded with the right amount of reflexion on the subject which they are carrying on it or about.



TONITE from 9pm ECT live stream of the performance
 REAL MYSTIC TRUTHS / The trustworthy magnificent speech
by angelo luz 

or come to the  
Seckbacher Landstraße 16 
in frankfurt am main  

the exhibition fake is about the phenomena of the fake as an essential element in art practice. humans strive to obtain or reveal a certain truth in their realities, yet the transformation of the real has a strong effect on their lives in so many different ways. it comforts them, confronts them, gets them to smile or moves them to be emotional or rational when it comes to perceiving reality. the construction of the fake seems to play a major role in the development of any aesthetic language and in the blurring of borders between its disciplines.

the paintings of mario hergueta show the perfect combination of painting, drawing and architectonic object. with the project ‘fake states’, the legendary artist gordon matta-clark had started an investigation - in the new york of the 1970s - which continued a tradition of psychogeography and mapping of urban landscapes. the designer kai linke with his mirror chairs series created objects that blur the boundaries between design and art. angelo luz is a multidisciplinary artists. luz uses his body as tool to formulate questions about the relation between body, nature and our existence at this time. he operates in an almost shamanistic way. for fake he will develop a new performance piece.

gordon and social

"My understanding of  art in a social context is as an essentially generous human act, an individually positive attempt to encounter the real world through expressive interpretation. The value of art as it services and  sometimes flourishes in our systems is so closely related to occidental beliefs in individual rights of free expression that one can accuratelly speak of the state of art as a mesure of the state of freedom in our society."
