22/2 - 20/4: ART

Stohead Decomposition

In his new series ‘Decomposition’ the written word is still the nucleus of Stohead’s oeuvre however, it has reached a new level of extreme abstraction. Stohead’s work process is ecstatic, aggressive, and poetic. The viewer has to digest the multi-layered organic character of scripture, which evokes a vibrant liveliness and power. Stohead shifts the written word from clear, artificial, and easily understandable towards two-dimensional complexity. The works captivate the viewer and draw them into an uncertain deepness due to the high level of abstraction in scripture. The viewer’s perception can lead to a new level of intellectual interpretation. At Circle Culture Gallery.

16/2 - 14/4: ART, FILM

Barbara Hammer Dignity

The experimental filmmaker, documentarist, and visual artist Barbara Hammer, who was born in Hollywood in 1939, has created one of the most influential oeuvres of Queer Cinema. Over the course of a lifetime, the pioneering lesbian film activist has put together a comprehensive manifesto of feminist perspectives. Our first solo exhibition of Barbara Hammer’s work, in 2011, emphasized her contributions to the (self-)representation of lesbian love and sexuality in the 1970s; in this new show, by contrast, we focus on a parallel strand in her oeuvre that commences in the mid-1980s: Hammer’s engagement with illness, aging, and death. At Kow.

Passions of an Elegant Lady Asian Fabrics from the Hammonds Collection

Luxurious costumes from Nô performances, colourful robes and elaborately patterned obi belts originally worn by elegant ladies, exquisite drapes for altars, stoles and mantles crafted for Japanese Buddhist priests, and rare textiles from China will all go on show to the public for the first time. The fabrics provide a fascinating insight into the technical sophistication and diverse ornamentation in East-Asian textile arts. Numbering in excess of fifty objects, the collection was compiled by the deceased concert pianist, diplomat's wife, and world traveller, Magdalene C. Hammonds (1903-1995), who acquired most of the objects in East Asia in the period between 1935 and 1955. At the Museen Dahlem.

Douglas Gordon Sharpening Fantasy

Blain | Southern Berlin is delighted to present a new group of video works by Douglas Gordon during the 63rd Film Berlinale, 2013. In addition to films and video installations, his work embraces photography, the written word, sculpture and music. For Sharpening Fantasy, 2012 Gordon travelled to Tangier, where he filmed traditional knife grinders in different locations within the Kasbah of the seaport city. The viewer watches as the effortlessly repeated movements of the men are set to the soundtrack of their day’s work. Following the recent large-scale, site-specific works by Jannis Kounellis and Lawrence Weiner, the installation transforms the former production hall of Der Tagesspiegel newspaper into an experiential, audio-visual space. The work presents collisions between Europe and the ‘Orient’, perception and prejudice, desire and fear.

18/1 - 14/4: PHOTOGRAPHY

Margaret Bourke White At Martin Gropius Bau

In the male-dominated world of American photography Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971) was a media star. Her portrait in flying gear setting off on a bombing raid, smiling and holding a camera in her left hand, was a favourite pin-up of the forces. The exhibition presenting the work of the photographer consists of 154 photographs, letters and periodicals. The focus is on the pictures she took in the 1930s and 40s in the former Soviet Union, former Czechoslovakia, Germany, the UK and Italy. Her pictures often graced the covers of Fortune and Life, for which she worked for many years. Sometimes she made the headlines herself, as when on January 22nd, 1943 Life magazine published her report on an air raid on the El Aouina airfield in Tunis – the Germans’ main air base for supplying their troops in North Africa from Sicily – under the title “Life’s Bourke-White Goes Bombing.” Her pictures stand for an era.

George Widener Secret Universe IV

In his clearly structured drawings, Widener combines real historical events, such as the sinking of the Titanic, with his own calculations, analyzing both world events and his own biography and developing specific codes for the super-intelligent computer of the future. Influenced by the theories of Ray Kurzweil, an early researcher on artificial intelligences, Widener is convinced that in the year 2045 human brains will meld with high-power computers and consciousness will become software. With images based on secret algorithms, Widener wishes to provide intelligent entertainment for these supercomputers and make them positively inclined towards humanity. At Hamburger Bahnhof.
