PROOF: FRANCISCO GOYA, SERGEI EISENSTEIN, ROBERT LONGO Deichtorhallen, Hamburg, 17.2.18 thru 27.2.18  With works by FRANCISCO GOYA (1746–1828), SERGEI EISENSTEIN (1898–1948), and ROBERT LONGO (1953), the exhibition PROOF offers insights into the particular positions from which artists reflect on the social, cultural, and political complexities of their times. From the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries across three continents, these three artists experienced the turbulence of a turn of the century as well as the seismic effects of revolution, civil rights movements, and war. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Goya chose the medium of printmaking for his socially critical series of works and haunting images of war. Beginning in the 1920s, Eisenstein dealt with Russian history in classic films such as »The Battleship Potemkin« (1925) and »Ivan the Terrible« (1945). The New York-based artist Robert Longo explores burning contemporary issues such as terrorism, refugee movements, modern warfare, and symbols of power in his drawings ranging up to 7.5 meters in size.

THE POLAROID PROJECT, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, 16.3.18 thru 17.6.18. Polaroid! A brand that has long since become legendary. One look at Instagram is enough to show how instant photography transformed the medium in ways that are still pervasive today. The exhibition positions the Polaroid phenomenon at the crossroads between art and technology. Outstanding artists from Ansel Adams to Andy Warhol used the medium of the instant photo to blaze new trails with their art, leaving a lasting mark on the aesthetics of an entire era. Featuring some 240 photos by 120 artists, The Polaroid Project sheds light on the whole aesthetic spectrum of instant photography while also demonstrating based on 87 camera models and prototypes the innovative technology that made this visual revolution possible in the first place. The Polaroid works on view range from the early days of the company in 1955 through to 2015. The main focus is on art from the 1980s and 90s. Instant camera film, presented to the public for the first time in 1947 by Edwin H. Land in New York, shortened the time needed to make, develop, and view a photograph to just a few minutes. This was the beginning of a mode of picture-making that lives on today in digital photography and the sharing of snapshots or selfies in online photo portals. The current hype for Polaroid apps for smartphones, along with the instant cameras that have been reintroduced onto the market, attest to the lasting popularity of the medium. With today’s flood of digital imagery, however, the quality that makes the Polaroid special has been turned into the opposite: When you take a Polaroid photo of a passing moment or a social occasion, the result is a unique physical, analogue object, which you can hold in your hand while you wait in suspense and anticipation as the image slowly appears as if by magic.

Museu Coleção Berardo, Lisbon, from March 1 thru June 3rd, 2018. No Place Like Home explores the question of what happens if we restore objects-turned-artworks to their “natural” place within a quasi-home. The exhibition’s theme, range and layout – as well as its IKEA-inspired catalogue – offer us an experience of a “home” that is at once familiar and disorienting. Visitors at the exhibition, designed in the spirit of an architectural plan, play the part of the family.

Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, December 5, 2017 – April 15, 2018 The point of departure of Art and Space is the collaboration between Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida and German philosopher Martin Heidegger in 1969, which resulted in the publication of an artist book whose title inspired that of this exhibition. By updating and fleshing out concepts and questions embedded in that extraordinary dialogue, this show presents more than 100 works by international artists and offers itself as a reinterpretation of the history of abstraction in the past six decades.
