Wihelm-Hack-Museum in Ludwigshafen am Rhein opens a new exhibition STREET LIFE. The Street in Art from Kirchner to Streuli (November 19, 2022 - March 5, 2023).

The exhibition is divided into six chapters, focusing on the street as a space for cultural action. Some would say: "Don't pass by!".

As an homage to the famous french painter of the post-war period, Olivier Debré (1920-1999), and as an attempt of a reinterpretation of his oeuvre, Centre de Création Contemporaine Olivier Debré presents a new exhibition called Déborder la Toile. This is about the categories of feelings, emotions in art or rather abstract painting, both modern and contemporary, represented by the artists such as Charlotte Denamur or Thu Van Tran, which in turn opens hitherto unknown perspectives.

Anri Sala| DART Chiostro del Bramante, Rome

Feb 19, 2022 - Jan 8, 2023

In the exhibition at Chiostro del Bramante, boldly titled CRAZY: Madness in Contemporary Art, one encounters many established artists' names, such as Lucio Fontana, Anri Sala or Tobias Rehberger. Contemporary art, of which they representate, is an indefinite, provocative, alluring and at the same time discarding art, which, according to the curator Danilo Eccher, is in turn linked to the state of madness. To look at the works of contemporary artists from this unexpected perspective - is to travel to the eternal city.

Thomas Ruff | ARKEN Museum for Moderne Kunst, Ishøj

Apr 22, 2021 - Dec 30, 2022

At the end of the rainbow, despite the connotation of the well-known idiom as something desirable (the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow) but difficult to achieve, shows us the world as an accumulation of ordinary human interactions wherein there is always something to explore.

Thomas Struth | Kunstmuseum Bonn

Jul 21 - Okt 16, 2022

Among the many new interpretations or representations of museum collections, the Bonn Art Museum's exhibition German Caviar stands out. The playful name, however, does not reveal the whole concept of the exhibition, which may appear childish but is in fact full of seriousness and addresses past, present and re-emerging socio-political issues with the help of photographic art. The dynamic role of the photographic medium itself is at the same time also addressed.

Together with other renowned artists, David Claerbout is participating in the 59th Venice Biennale. One of the main themes of Uncombed, Unforeseen, Unconstrained - the name of the group exhibition presented by London's Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art - is entropy - a physics term that in this case stands for disorder and unpredictability within our society.  Current socio-cultural, political and climatic challenges leave hardly anyone indifferent today, including the art world.

Can an image be both crude and seductive at the same time? Is there a “charm of the totalitarian”? And who lies more blatantly, Vladimir Putin or Mark Zuckerberg?

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

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.
