Staff Picks # Sculpture Edition

The sculpture. One word, diverse forms. What exactly do we know about this subject of art, how do we integrate it in our life and what does it express of our very inside? Delighted by the current exhibition ‘Giacometti-Nauman’ in the SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE in Frankfurt, we started to wonder how our Community artist are dealing with this subject. The result  is as virtuous as the subject of art sculpture itself, its materiality, expression and form. Get inspired by this weeks Staff Pics #Sculpture Edition. Read more »

Staff Picks # Sea & Beach Edition

Browsing through Artconnect.com we came along many artworks talking about the sea. For those who miss the sea, this Staff Picks will make you nostalgic. Maybe you want to write on the comments what you miss more of it?

Arthouse -A guided tour around Weißensee's art commune 'Kunstlerhaus Parkstraße'

A guided tour around Weißensee’s art commune ‘Künstlerhaus Parkstraße’

 

On first glance, Weißensee may look like the place where the young and hip – tired of the tourist trap that has become their favourite coffee roaster, or the listless stupor of a post-Berghain Sunday – go to quietly start families and settle themselves into a routine, saving their celebrations for summer BBQs and ‘Spargelzeit’. But Weißensee, though undoubtedly giving off a small-town vibe, ought not be dismissed as another small East German district. Read more »

Review on Georg Ettl at Jiri Svestka Gallery – Early works from 1960s and 70s

Jiri Svestka Gallery, a small gallery hidden on the 3rd floor in front of the Blain|Southern Gallery, is a fine gem.
