Bertram Hasenauer Still Hanging on to What May Be
2015, 80 x 64 cm Acryl auf Holz

Bertram Hasenauer malt Menschen. Menschen, die wir als solche zu erkennen glauben und die sich zugleich dem Erkennen sofort wieder entziehen. Wir glauben, seine Bilder vom Menschen seien einfach zu dechiffrieren. Doch er beraubt uns der Fähigkeit der Gesichtswahrnehmung. War es in früheren Jahren die Abwesenheit eines deutbaren Gesichtsausdrucks oder Raumes oder wandten sich die Porträtierten in Hasenauers Bildern vom Betrachter ab, so fallen in den jüngsten Arbeiten die Porträts ganz aus dem Bild.

“By changing the point of perspective on banknote faces, one can reveal the false nature of these symbols, usually used by those in power to promote a certain cultural identity and economic agenda. This is a statement about the telling of human-driven histories, the changing narratives surrounding those figures so “canonized” in cultural memory that they appear on currency (as a form of currency itself), which is why this work’s title is a tongue-in-cheek triple entendre. The work invites a cynical nostalgia – icons from old regimes and ideologies – hollow currencies exposing indoctrination via banknote. So, how do we turn this form of propaganda back on itself? Through manipulation.”

Top Oscar nominees invited to witness Palestinian life under Israeli occupation

Oscar nominees in the top acting and directing categories, as well as the host at tonight’s ceremony, Chris Rock, have received invitations from a coalition of groups to visit Palestine and experience life through the eyes of Palestinians living under apartheid and military occupation.
The ironic invitations were sent  from musician Brian Eno on behalf of Artists for Palestine UK, the Palestinian Performing Arts Network, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, in response to an Israeli PR junket offered nominees as part of this year’s Oscar Swagbag.

 

 

oscrasinvite-smaller1.jpg

The alternative invitations were delivered to nominees’ reps via email. Recipients included Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Eddie Redmayne, Cate Blanchett, Brie Larson, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlotte Rampling, Saoirse Ronan, Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Mark Ruffalo, Mark Rylance, Sylvester Stallone, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rooney Mara, Rachel McAdams, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Adam McKay, George Miller, Alejandro Iñárritu, Lenny Abrahamson, and Tom McCarthy.

Rylance, nominated for Best Supporting Actor in Bridge of Spies, has already said he won’t be accepting any gifts. He has previously pledged to accept neither professional invitations to Israel nor funding from any institutions linked to its government until it complies with international law and universal principles of human rights. Asif Kapadia, whose film Amy is nominated for Best Documentary Feature, has also signed the pledge, as have five-time Oscar nominee Mike Leigh, director Ken Loach and musician Brian Eno.

“Our hope is that other artists will follow suit and take a stand for Palestinian human rights, as so many cultural figures did in the struggle against South African apartheid,” wrote Eno.

The US campaign to End the Occupation, which joined Jewish Voice for Peace in publishing a full-page color ad in Wednesday’s Los Angeles Times, suggested a range of actions people could take to urge the stars to resist Israeli PR bribery:

Media interest in the SwagBag controversy has been extensive, coming as it does on top of a high-profile ‪#‎OscarsSoWhite‬ campaign to expose racism at the heart of the movie industry which has failed to find even one non-white leading Oscar nominee, for the second year in a row.

On 6 July 2016 Tate Modern will open the largest exhibition of
American modernist painter Georgia O’Keeffe ever to be held outside
the USA. Marking a century since O’Keeffe’s debut in New York, this
retrospective will be a once-in-a-generation opportunity for audiences
outside of America to view her oeuvre in such depth. Spanning the six
decades in which O’Keeffe was at her most productive and featuring over
100 major works, the exhibition will chart the progression of her practice
from her early abstract experiments to her late works, aiming to dispel
the clichés that persist about the artist and her painting.

Georgia O’Keeffe will be the first major UK exhibition of this iconic
American modernist painter for over twenty years. Marking 100 years
since O’Keeffe’s debut in New York in 1916, this ambitious and wide-ranging
retrospective will reassess O’Keeffe’s place in the canon of twentieth-century
art and reveal her profound importance. Spanning the six decades in which
O’Keeffe was at her most productive, the show will be a once-in-a-generation
opportunity for European audiences to view her works in such depth.

O’ Keeffe is recognised as a foundational figure of American modernism
born in the late 1880s she secured a central place within the mainstream
art world from the 1910s to the 1970s. She was also claimed as an important
pioneer by feministartists of the 1970s. A single-minded character who
identified her ambition to become an artist when she was still a child,
O’Keeffe developed her practice over a seven-decade career.
O’Keeffe excelled as a landscape artist, and this exhibition will relate her
practice back through the American tradition of landscape painting, as well
as forward to anticipate the gendered landscapes and statements of
feminist artists of later generations. For this reason, as well as her enduring
engagement with abstraction and landscape, the serialised, increasingly
economic and stylised paintings of the southwestern locations called the
‘Black Place’ and the ‘White Place’, will be at the heart of the exhibition.

A key aspect of the exhibition will be to consider O’Keeffe’s professional
and personal relationship with Alfred Stieglitz; photographer, modern art
promoter and the artist’s husband. While Stieglitz afforded O’Keeffe access
to the most current developments in avant-garde art, she employed these
influences and opportunities to her own objectives. Her keen intellect,
as well as her forceful and resolute character, created a fruitful relationship
that was, though sometimes conflictive, one of reciprocal influence and exchange.

The popular notion that O’Keeffe was a simple painter of flowers is a
conception she faced during her lifetime. This exhibition will consider
these remarkable flower works in the context of her overall production as
multi-layered images, relating them to her engagement with abstraction
and issues of form and composition, to her complex relationship with
gendered imagery, bodily analogy and Freudian interpretations, and to
her spiritual engagement with the landscape. Charting the progression
of her practice from her early abstract experiments to her late work, this
exhibition will re-examine her entire career, her development, her
trajectory west, and the profound influence and legacy of her work.

Im Mittelpunkt der Ausstellung stehen Architekturvisionen und Zeichnungen dreier Visionäre des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts.
Der Schriftsteller, Dichter und Erfinder Paul Scheerbart (1863- 1915)
konnte um 1914 den jungen Architekten Bruno Taut (1880- 1938) für seine Ideenbegeistern, mit farbigem Glas zu bauen.
Paul Goesch (1885-1940), ausgebildeter Architekt, schuf hunderte von
phantastischen Zeichnungen. Er zählte zu jenem berühmten Forum für
utopisches Bauen, dem 1919 von Taut ins Leben gerufenen Briefzirkel
„Die Gläserne Kette“.

Die neue Kunst der jungen Weimarer Republik, deren Wirtschaft daniederlag,
sollte sich aus den verschiedensten Quellen speisen, die Bauten gläsernen Grotten
oder galaktischen Luftschlössern ähneln, gerade weil es kaum Mittel zum Bauen gab. „Träumer, Phantasten, Visionäre“ […] das ist letzten Endes das, was wir wollen: die Utopie!“,formulierte der Architekt Walter Gropius damals begeistert.

Die Zeit in Berlin fällt mit einer Phase der Neudefinition seines Werks zusammen:
Seit Ende der 1980er Jahre lotet er die Grenzen zwischen Skulptur, Objekt und Performance aus.

Ein Hauptwerk der Ausstellung ist das Narrow House, ein detailgetreuer Nachbau seines Elternhauses – verengt auf eine Breite von knapp über einem Meter. Die Enge der Provinz wird so sprichwörtlich für den Besucher erfahrbar, der das Haus betreten kann. Ergänzt wird die Ausstellung durch mehrere One Minute Sculptures: Handlungsansweisungen des Künstlers verleiten den Besucher dazu, mithilfe alltäglicher Objekte ungewöhnliche Posen einzunehmen und so für kurze Zeit zur lebenden Skulptur zu werden. Der dritte Teil der Präsentation widmet sich erstmals ausführlich dem zeichnerischen Werk Erwin Wurms.

IN FRONT OF ist eine Serie von 70 Bildern, in denen sich Heidi Specker mit den Umständen und Bedingungen der Porträtfotografie auseinandersetzt. Statt dem gängigen Aufnahmekodex zu folgen, schafft sie in ihrem Atelier eine Atmosphäre, die es ermöglicht, die Abhängigkeits- und Machtverhältnisse durchsichtig zu machen, die während einer Porträtsitzung zwischen Fotograf und Modell entstehen. Ihre Fotos entwickelte sie aus einer Verweigerungshaltung gegenüber der konventionellen Porträtfotografie, die vornehmlich auf Repräsentation und Selbstdarstellung angelegt ist. In ihrer Beiläufigkeit und Sperrigkeit provozieren die Porträts ein Nachdenken darüber, wie weit man einem Menschen überhaupt nahe kommen und seine Persönlichkeit erfassen kann.

Im zweiten Teil der Ausstellung wird ihre 2003/04 in Berlin entstandene Serie IM GARTEN gezeigt. Diese mutet an wie ein Spaziergang durch die Stadt, bei dem über parallele Strukturen in Natur und Kultur nachgedacht wird.

Heidi Specker gehört zu den wichtigen Vertreterinnen zeitgenössischer Fotografie. Die Ausstellung in der Berlinischen Galerie ist ihr erster großer Einzel-Auftritt in einem Museum.

IN FRONT OF (2015) is Heidi Specker’s first venture into portrait photography. She is not interested in the status and self-projection associated with conventional portrait practice. Ultimately Heidi Specker provokes us to ask how close a photographer can get to another person and how accurately a personality can be depicted.

The second part of the exhibition is devoted to the series IN THE GARDEN. In these photos taken in Berlin, the artistshe evokes the strangely alien, abandoned and artificial feel to remnants of nature within the urban space.

Heidi Specker is a leading figure in contemporary photography. This is her first major solo exhibition in a museum.
