The magazine is included in the current issue of the Süddeutsche Zeitung and contains a captivating interview of the artist with Tobias Haberl.

The exhibition "Oil. Beauty and Horror of the Petroleum Age" takes a speculative, poetic look back at the present of petroleum modernity, which has lasted for about 100 years.

Goshka Macuga | MIddelheim Museum, Antwerp

For PUBLIC FIGURE #2 – an annual project by Art in the City (Middelheim Museum) – artist Goshka Macuga (Poland, 1967) rejects the tradition of the “lone hero on his plinth.” Instead, the artist depicts a trans-historic collective of five women whose lives and work shaped and changed society and the arts. The new work pays homage to Chantal Akerman, pioneer cineaste and visual artist; Andrée Blouin, pan-African political activist and member of the first democratically elected government of post-independence Congo; Patricia De Martelaere, philosopher and professor; Marie Popelin, the first woman doctor in Law in Belgium; and Mathilde Schroyens, the first woman mayor of Antwerp.
