Albertina in Vienna is showing from June 26 through Octobre 2, 2016 60 fascinating self-portraits by Jim Dine .
The self-portraits, which Dine began painting in the 1950s, serve to catalyse an independent, intense, and surprising dialogue with the artist and his output. And Dine’s diverse experiments with a wide range of techniques and materials address themes including youth and old age, intimacy and extroversion, and seriality and creativity on paper—enabling these self-portraits to open up new insights into a supposedly familiar oeuvre.
Museum Kunst der Westküste in Alkersum presents from 26 June 2016 through 8 January 2017 works by photographer Mila Teshaieva .
Developing the work over the course of two years as Artist-in-Residence at the Museum Kunst der Westküste, Föhr, the artist interacted closely with islanders and was accepted into the inner circles of island life. Created in a style reminiscent of old paintings, the work forms the island as an imaginary world, at the same time underlining a touching fragility of its real essence.
Exhibition Museum Tinguely Basel
Museum Tinguely Basel presents from June 8 through September 25, 2016 the first museum survey of acclaimed British artist Michael Landy.
The exhibition will span Landy’s entire career, bringing together works from Break Down 2001, where the artist systematically destroyed all of his possessions in a former department store in London, through to Credit Card Destroying Machine 2010, Saints Alive 2010-13, among many others.
The elaborately designed catalog is bound as a stiff soft cover with a four-sided closed block, which the reader has to »destroy« to open the book.
The Kehrer Gallery in Berlin presents from June 4 to June 18, 2016 Restricted Areas. The exhibition is about the human impulse towards utopia, about our striving for perfection through technological progress. Danila Tkachenko searched for places who have lost their significance and are now deserted. Left-behind are remains of human technology who remind of former efforts and at the same time document, how every progress comes to its end earlier or later.
The theme of the city, with its subcultures, promises, and dangers, runs through the three photographic oeuvres of Ken Schles, Jeffrey Silverthorne and Miron Zownir, which will be presented in the House of Photography at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg from 5 May to 7 August 2016.
Jeffrey Silverthorne’s photographic work pointedly poses existential life questions of identity, gender, love, sexuality, and death.
Extended until 2. September 2016
Works by Matthieu Gafsou will be on view at Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung in Munich from 22 January to 24 June 2016.
Entitled LIFE IS NOT A BEACH, the new exhibition addresses the dark sides of life. One example is the oppressive world of drug addicts. The photographer Matthieu Gafsou documents these in his thirty photographs in an authentic and at the same time poetically sensible manner.
