BERLIN GALLERY WEEKEND #01: EDMUND DE WAAL

COMMUNITY ART

After decades of implied politics within his work, Wolfgang Tillmans has taken a refreshing and more outspoken position that addresses political issues head on: first turning his gallery space Between Bridges in Berlin into a temporary ‘meeting place’ to discuss the refugee crisis: ‘From this month Between Bridges wants to be a forum, however small; a platform, however powerless, to discuss and organize activity from within the art community.’

And now releasing a series of posters campaigning against the infamous Brexit that will be held to a vote in the UK this June. The posters are available as free downloads to share on- and offline on Tillmans’ site. Between Bridges is open extended hours during Gallery Weekend.

TAOBAO SCROLLS

The extremes in which capitalism tries to arouse desire overflow in Taobao, the Chinese online shopping giant. Images that suspiciously resemble post-internet art litter its pages, but their surreality is common to many advertisements throughout history (if more exaggerated). One wonders how much is lost in translation, how much are disgruntled young creatives finding outlets for their imagination, and how much is just total miscomprehension. A selection of images available in infinite scroll via Tumblr.

I kind of missed this when it came out in 2013, but now, as I‘m coming home soon again, I feel like having heard it before.
