museumludwig-hoffmann

Leni Hoffmann, Flipper, 2009 September 26, 2009 – March 28, 2010 The Düsseldorf-based artist Leni Hoffmann has created a site-specific ex-hibition that dialogues with the architecture and the collection of Cologne’s Ludwig Museum in a refreshing new manner. This radical show fundamentally challenges the collection-based institution through ephemeral on and off-site projects that evolve over time and question the autonomy of art. Few movements have influenced the course of modern and contemporary art as deeply […]

Interview with Daniel Göttin, by Chris Ashley

introduction It seems somehow appropriate to me that Daniel Göttin’s recent wall works — those in which lines of tape placed on a wall are used to make a large, dense web of intersecting lines — are called Networks.  Over a two-month period Daniel and I talked about his art via electronic messages relayed back and forth across a complex network of thousands of miles of cable between Basel, Switzerland and Northern California.  He could […]

Open House: Working in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Museum, by Nick Stillman

Early critical returns on the Brooklyn Museum’s Open House: Working in Brooklyn have been middling to scathing, with most negative reviews questioning the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink curatorial strategy.
