Exhibitions: “Art with Money” at Whiteconcepts gallery and Maki Na Kamura at Bethanien

Yesterday I went to see the new solo exhibition in Künstlerhaus Bethanien‘s Kottbusser Strasse showroom: Maki Na Kamura, the winner of this year’s Falkenrot Preis award. Different landscapes and cityscapes all folded together onto a single canvas, that was my impression of her paintings – full of details and yet open to interpretation; interesting and complex. Go and see it!

This Friday, 22nd November, Whiteconcepts gallery in Auguststrasse will open a new group exhibition: “Art With Money”. I’ve never been to Whiteconcepts so this is a good opportunity to finally visit the gallery. Also, Spanish artist duo PSJM (I interviewed them for globe-M last year) will be exhibiting there. The vernissage begins at 7pm.

Cyberfest 2013: Time & Place kicks off on Wednesday, 13th November, at 8pm – and all events are free (yay!).

And here is the globe-M article on Cyberfest 2013, freshly posted: Cyber//Art. I visited the exhibitions in The Wye on Wednesday and completely fell in love with “Aesthetics of Decay: Design for Dying Electronics”, a multimedia installation by Disney Nasa Borg which can be seen on The Wye’s ground floor. My favourites on the second floor exhibition room include “Movie Mincer” by Sergey Teterin – a metal meat mincer connected to a laptop and beamer; when you turn the handle you can screen a silent movie film clip (George Méliès’ “A Trip to the Moon” from 1902!). When the handle pauses, the film stops. Continue reading
