    The large exhibition at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg has just opened (it runs until February 25, 2024). On display are about 100 works by Otto Dix, which makes it probably the largest Dix show in recent years. And of course that is not all, the exhibition, but also the book, are devoted to the consequences of Dix’s work, especially in its specific aesthetics and its conditions of transformation in contemporary art. The work of Otto Dix acts as a mirror in the actuality of realistic contemporary painting, it shows the possibilities and the depths of the various genres that are cleverly raised here: »Metropolis – Milieus and Group Portraits«, »The Type Portrait in Transition«, »In the Style of the Old Masters«, »Political Landscape«, »Between the World Wars«, »Critical Encounters with Nazism and the Grotesque«, and »Biblical Themes and Allegories«.

    OPENING – Sprengel Museum Hannover – Ocular Witness – PIG CONSCIOUSNESS

    Humans and pigs – what kind of relationship do they have? More similar in genetic make-up than we think, pigs are intelligent, playful and – like us – omnivorous. But our relationship is anything but on an equal footing. There’s no doubting that we humans dictate how and where pigs live. But what are we doing to ourselves and our environment with an industry that produces meat with production-line methods? OCULAR WITNESS: THE WHOLE HOG takes the pig-human relationship as an opportunity to reflect on our relations with ourselves, with pigs and with the world. What does the global meat industry mean for lifestyles in rural regions? What is the real price of our pork chop, roast or sausage? And is it possible to use the means of art to address social and political issues that are as concrete as they are complex and to put them up for discussion?

    The exhibition brings together artists who explore these issues. All of them – biologists, sociologists, bee educators, chefs, shop assistants, etc. – bring their specialist knowledge to the table.

    the catalogue for the exhibition
    by ANSELM REYLE is ready!

    Watching Anselm Reyle at work is a special moment. He works with concentration, but is also very relaxed and manages an action like spraying the work »Allover« with great fortitude. In the end, it looks very good. The colors are right, they’re not really pleasing, and Pollock is all over the room.

    Gregor Schneider and »The dark side of the world«

    Today, July 15, 2023, Gregor Schneider receives the Ernst Franz Vogelmann Prize for Sculpture 2023 at the Rathaus Heilbronn, endowed with 30,000.00 euros and accompanied by a large retrospective exhibition at Kunsthalle Vogelmann. At the press briefing on July 14, Marc Gundel, Director of the Heilbronn Museums, emphasized that Gregor Schneider was now the sixth award winner. Three of the predecessors, whose life’s work has already been honored with the Ernst Franz Vogelmann Prize, had previously also been awarded the Golden Lion in Venice for their contributions.
    Claudia Ihlefeld writes in the »Heilbronner Stimme« (July 15, 2023) about the exhibition of Gregor Schneider in the Heilbronner Kunsthalle Vogelmann: »To dive into Schneider’s cosmos is a special experience. ... While Schneider transferred 24 rooms to Venice in 2001 and re-built them, there are fewer in Heilbronn. But his artistic strategy of transforming everyday spaces into irritating places with a few precise interventions is the same. ... ›Corona has made us aware again that we cannot escape spaces,‹ Gregor Schneider explains his work in conversation. But also that ›art is not always humane in a positive sense. There is a dark side of the world,‹ Schneider says succinctly. And that in a double sense: whoever enters his spatial sequences in the Kunsthalle steps into the dark. ... Since his youth, Gregor Schneider has been building spaces that take their origin in the so-called ›Haus u r‹ at Unterheydener Straße 12 in Mönchengladbach-Rheydt. Since then, doubling and repetition have been his modus operandi – in the sense of confirming what already exists or what potentially exists. Nothing is really invented, but reconstructed. Thus the work ›Odenkirchener Straße 202‹ – which can also be sensed on the ground floor of the video installation – questions the historical responsibility and the handling of National Socialism: using the example of Joseph Goebbels’ birthplace. Just in the Biennale year 2001« – at that time he was awarded the Golden Lion for his work »Haus u r« in the German pavilion – »Schneider learned that it stands only a few hundred meters away from his family home, Haus ur, and acquired the property. Not ›to rewrite history,‹ but rather an opportunity for the space specialist to research the ›state of the unspoken, the incomprehensible.‹«
