It’s that time of the year, and all the bikers have to kiss their love goodbye for hibernation. It’s heartbreak, but it’s the season. And you can tell German Gemütlichkeit doesn’t stop at the front door.

Polish artist Pawe? Althamer is one of the most uncompromising and consistent artists working today and we dedicated him our mono.kultur issue #17.
For his Deutsche Guggenheim commission he has created an exhibition-in-progress that confronts visitors with a site of active production rather than passive reflection:
Almech is born out of a physical and psychic exchange between the [...]

What is there to say about someone who will spend 10 hours on creating a 9mm flower out of paper? Someone like Anja Markiewicz, who has obviously taken the virtues of the Japanese Origami very close to her heart.

The ‘reading room’ is open until March 22, 2011:

sculpture now

Set in the urban wasteland that was formerly the ‘Mauerstreifen’, Skulpturenpark Mitte was from the very start a statement rather then a ready form. To find a position in a structural context and develop sculptures in process has been an ongoing project, and this transition taking place for the last 4 years that has now [...]


From today on, KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin shows a new exhibition series in the front building, entitled KW69. This series provides a space for dialogue for artists, a kind of experimental stage that for one year will be the home to a number of artistic projects in quick succession. Moving on from [...]
