Naama Tsabar: Estuaries
Apr 12 – Sep 22, 2024
Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart
Berlin, Germany

Naama Tsabar’s art overcomes the boundaries of sculpture, music, performance and architecture: Hamburger Bahnhof presents the installation and performance artist with her first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. The exhibition focuses on three bodies of work with wall and floor works that also function as musical instruments and can be activated by the audience. The performance, created especially in the exhibition, is developed in close collaboration with a group of female identifying or gender non-confirming musicians and performers from Berlin and New York. With the use of felt in connection with sound, Naama Tsabar corresponds with works by Joseph Beuys, which are also shown in parallel in the Kleihueshalle. The exhibition is the first in a series of contemporary presentations in dialogue with the presentation of Beuys’ works in the collection.

The performances on the opening weekend are an integral part of the exhibition. Naama Tsabar, in collaboration with musicians and performers from New York and Berlin, will develop a composition that will be performed in the exhibition and musically activate the works on display from the series Works On Felt, Inversions and Melodies of Certain Damage. The entire exhibition space will become a resonating space in which the audience can move freely around the performers.

  • Michael Radford: CRASH
    Publication
    Edition Taube
    International

    In Michael Radford’s first artists’ book, we see shattered supercar bodies – forming a dialogue between consumer accidents and human desire, questioning these objects and their role in enabling petrol masculinity. The seductive high-gloss compositions draw us in, seen through the lens of automotive sexiness and the capitalist ideological machine, cannoned by the image. (more…)

  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024
    Mudam
    Luxembourg

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

  • Chantal Joffe
    Artist
    Featured Profile

    Chantal Joffe brings a combination of insight and integrity, as well as psychological and emotional force, to the genre of figurative art. Hers is a deceptively casual brushstroke. Whether in images a few inches square or ten feet high, fluidity combined with a pragmatic approach to representation seduces and disarms. (more…)

  • LaToya Ruby Frazier: Monuments of Solidarity
    May 12 – Sep 7, 2024
    MoMA
    New York, USA

    “For this reason, it is incumbent upon me to resist – one photograph at a time, one photo essay at a time, one body of work at a time, one book at a time, one workers’ monument at a time – historical erasure and historical amnesia,” says artist-activist LaToya Ruby Frazier. Born in 1982 in the steel manufacturing town of Braddock, Pennsylvania, Frazier has used photography, text, moving images, and performance to revive and preserve forgotten stories of labor, gender, and race (more…)

  • Rencontres d’Arles 2024
    Beneath The Surface
    Jul 1 – Sep 29, 2024
    Arles, France

    Tremors and turmoil, spirits, traces, parallel readings and rereadings all constitute new perspectives underlying the 2024 edition of the Rencontres d’Arles. Photographers, artists and curators reveal their visions and stories, not least that of our humanity, by turns thwarted, in endless redefinition, resilient, but also visionary. Whether on the margins or established at the center, the narratives lead to divergent, multiple paths, all emanating from the faults in a porous surface: they intertwine, superimpose and overlap.
