Moving with the artist in APPARAT at Kunstverein Braunschweig, Jun 3 – Aug 13

30 May 2017

The APPARAT group exhibition at Kunstverein Braunschweig opens June 3 and is running to August 13. 

Curated by Christina Lehnert, the show will explore “shift of perspectives and the alliance of humans and machines” and includes work by Aleksandra Domanović, Andreas Fischer, Pakui Hardware, Alexander Kluge, Daria Martin, Sandra Mujinga, Wyatt Nihaus, Margaret Raspé, Raphaela Vogel and Jan Vorisek.

 Inspired by Margaret Raspé (*1933), a filmmaker from the 1970’s who mounted the camera on her head to record her daily activities, the artists respond on what it means to ‘move’ with the artist. Focusing on a younger generations relationship to this idea and our relationship to recording now, the exhibition examines the apparatus as a way to approach the subject of “producing art, expanding human capabilities in the sense of a posthuman man-machine, and as an independent system, that creates its own narratives and immersive spaces.”

Äppärät opening reception @ Ballroom Marfa, Sep 25 – Feb 14

25 September 2015

A reception for a new group exhibition titled Äppärät is opening at Texas’ Ballroom Marfa on September 25, running until February 14, 2016.

The group show, curated by writer, curator and Frieze Contributing Editor Tom Morton, features the works of thirteen artists—among them Ed Atkins, Cécile B. Evans, Sophie Jung, Lee Lozano and Marlie Mul—examining conditions of labour and those of play, and how the two interact.

The new exhibition, which takes its title from the name of a fictional, post-iPhone device found in Gary Shteyngart’s 2010 near-future novel Super Sad True Love Story, is about “the mammalian hand, and the tools it touches, holds and uses”. DJ Mike Simonetti will be playing in the Ballroom Marfa courtyard following the opening reception.

See the exhibition page for details. **

A New Error

28 November 2009

It’s never too late to discover great new music, like the band created by Modeselektor & Apparat: Moderat. A band which released an homonym album early this year and that shall not see the light again (or so they say).
