NEWS We would like to thank you all for the amazing response to the 6th Edition of our call: selected participants will be notified via email of their status of acceptance by the end of June 2017

Open Call  For the 6th time, ART Habens is inviting entries for the competition to find the most interesting emerging worldwide artists.

This year’s edition will focus on a recurrent paradox in contemporary art: the vague and ambiguous but thoroughly entrenched boundaries between the different practices of new media.
In particular it will engage with artists dealing with process-driven changes in our society, who pair their observations with new media technologies to produce their art projects.

This competition aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists to work between the boundaries of Contemporary Art. ART Habens aims to engage artists, curators and gallerists in conversation about the role of Art in contemporary society.

Inspired by the worldwide art scene, we highlight that art is an essential element in our lives: ART Habens reserves a special place to explore these transformations; first, by acknowledging the energy and effort that goes into the creation of art, and second, by investigating the new life a work takes on as it is transferred from artist to world.

'Art Publications from Start to Finish' Online Course by Node Center

Art books and catalogues are increasingly important as a site where contemporary art carries out its discourses and activities. They are integral parts of exhibitions and indeed can be considered artworks themselves in the case of artist's books and editions.
This course takes the participants through various types of publications before looking in detail at each of the key stages of producing an exhibition catalogue, from looking at funding possibilities, sample publication budgets, contracts and permissions, as well as at ways of giving a publication a life through promotion and marketing before looking at distribution and where books end up. The course outlines each stage in the exciting and challenging process of publishing.

4Th International Performance Art Weekend

Allerstraße 38 Berlin 12049

International artists create a two-day high-energy event with an international context by presenting their work in an hourly schedule throughout the weekend.
The actions follow creating a connection between the public open space of the Schillerkiez with the private indoor space of Luisa Catucci Gallery.
Performers and viewers will be taking the inside to the outside and the outside to the inside. The power of momentary impulses and the power of intervention with space and time, and the encompassing mix of genres and disciplines create the action weekend to become an unforeseeable overall picture of Performances where the threshold of categories merges.

Focus  Poetry as Practice: Ye Mimi's filmic postcards of street life in NYC, Chicago, and Taiwan, by Harry Burke

The poetry film Was Being Moved? (2011) takes the form of a series of postcards to a "Mr. Parade," interspersed with vignettes of public rituals and street life in Chicago, New York City, and Taiwan. It features music composed and played by Taiwanese musician Yujun Wang.Through collaging her words and images, she improvises a new landscape, trying to erase the border between poetry and image making. A bilingual chapbook of her poems was recently published by Anomalous Press under the title His Days Go by the Way Her Years (2013).In his 1976 series of Artforum articles, "Inside the White Cube," Brian O'Doherty made the simple but powerful claim that the art gallery is not a neutral context. Despite its presentation as invisible or natural, the white-painted gallery space asserts a distinct ideological bearing onto the production and exhibition of art. In similar fashion, the computer and the internet shape the production and reception of poetry.

Interview: Artist Charlotte Spafford
by  Megan Jenkins

What is the nature of a mimicked object, especially when the object that ceases to serve its categorical imperative? When we remove an object from its context, how does its meaning change—and how can we then designate its function? Vancouver artist Charlotte Spafford tackles the Ship of Theseus problem of the art object in her project Precious Things, a collection of items imbued with sentimentality and emotion by loved ones and strangers alike, then recreated in Charlotte's own style.

EVENT  Rhizome Presents: Internet as Poetry

On December 4, 2011, Bunny Rogers uploaded an image of a rose to cunny4.tumblr.com; six months later, she began to post short poems to it on a regular basis. Five years ago, internet artist Kevin Bewersdorf took all of his images, music, and texts offline, changed his name to Kev, and published a new website featuring only an image of a flickering flame. He writes slowly, holding the ideas inside for long periods of time until they crystallize.

NEWS  & EVENTS

FOCUS  Transmediale 2015: Why we need spaces for art and tech beyond corporate influence by Elvia Wilk

True to its title, "Capture All," the program of this year's transmediale festival in Berlin was ambitiously panoramic, with such a marathon, round-the-clock schedule that by the last day a number of attendees had come down with the same cold.

Separated into the thematic tracks of Work, Play, and Life, the events revolved around the quantification of everyday activities, mass data acquisition, algorithmic sorting of information about people and the planet, and the systems of power and control implicit in all of those processes—topics in which most of the festival's target audience is well-versed. This year for the first time, tickets sold out completely.

KMD – Kunsthalle Marcel Duchamp | The Forestay Museum of Art

Essentially, Tom Hackney's Chess Paintings, which are based on the great chess games of Marcel Duchamp, make conceptual reference to two significant texts of the 20th century, one being Duchamp's famous 'preface' to The Large Glass (1915–1923), which he wrote on a slip of paper around 1915 and later, in 1934, published in the Green Box. The other text is Max Bill's precise and remarkable essay in the catalogue accompanying Marcel Duchamp's first solo exhibition in a public institution, which this famous Swiss artist curated himself in 1960 at the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zürich. Tom Hackney's paintings start on the one hand out from Duchamp's games of chess and, on the other, give a new, post-avant-garde dimension to the paintings of the Zürich Concrete artists around Max Bill and Richard Paul Lohse. Hackney subesequently endows Duchamp's at once playful and seriously existential games of chess with a statically visual aspect—Duchamp would have called it an 'ultra-rapid delay'—by beginning.' In other words, Tom Hackney's works are directly related to Marcel Duchamp's concept of the instantaneous state of rest but in a style of painting characteristic of the Zürich Concrete artists, not only giving the idea of 'movement' a new dimension but also embracing a fruitful reason for the appropriation or reanimation of abstract painting today.

FOCUS  Sound and Vision by Con Artists Collective

The Greatest Albums. The ones we maintain to be classic, essential, even perfect in the face of any and all argument. Each of us has a unique and highly personal catalogue of music that we return to again and again regardless of the ways we and the times may change. For many of us the crowning touch to these albums is an unforgettable cover. “Sound & Vision” is dedicated to the artistry of these visual statements that capture the genius, inspiration, passion and provocation of the recorded sounds they envelop.

We’ve invited artists of the collective to reinterpret cover art from some of their favorite albums which span a significant range of musical stylesand recording techniques. Count on one sure thing: the new works they  created will be every bit as diverse and provocative as the iconic albums they invoke.  >>>link>>>

New York City. Photograph by Teju Cole

FOCUS  Retweeting Fiction by Brendan C. Byrde

On the morning of January 8th, Teju Cole published a fiction in the form of 33 tweets, each posted from the account of a different "collaborator," and then retweeted sequentially by Cole. Titled "Hafiz," it took three hours and fifteen minutes to be published. Like most of Cole's experiments in Twitter publishing, it generated much more social media heat than actual critique. (There are a few notable exceptions.) But "Hafiz," both as a story and presentation, is worth examining, as it is both the closest tejucole has come to Teju Cole's fiction and a singular commentary on it.This is not Cole's first foray into Twitter publishing. "Small Fates" (2011-2013).

Plattenspieler with Thomas Meinecke and Finn Johannsen

Exhibition Identity - Expression Through Multiple Mediums

Curated by Elizabeth De Leon

"My inspiration for this project was Danah Boyd's idea of "Identity Performance" and how identity can be expressed online through text, image, audio and video. Identity as a form of self expression has, over time, succumbed to society's stereotypical notions of what the "perfect" identity should be(What the perfect image of oneself should be).
First of all, what does the politics of identity entail? How a person looks, acts, or what a person does. These notions are constantly changing and what today may be considered as beautiful and is excepted, tomorrow it may be rejected. In any case, the way identity is expressed will always evolve and what we hold to be the ideal identity, will change as well.

Jenny Saville in conversation with Nicholas Cullinan

Interview by Nicholas Cullinan.
Recent solo museum exhibitions include Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rome (2005); Norton Museum of Art, Florida. Saville’s works are featured in several collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York;

Jenny Saville is joined in conversation with Nicholas Cullinan, Curator, Tate Modern. This very special event is a rare opportunity to hear the artist discuss her recent practice in the context of the exhibition at Modern Art Oxford. 

British artist Jenny Saville (1970), one of the Young British Artists, deconstructs the stereotypes of beauty and eroticism of the female body as seen through art and through men, and then broadens them. She experiments with obese women and changes in the body, but above all she uses her own body as a model and means of reflection. She reveals the natural beauty of the individuality of the women she paints, and her own. This defines her artistic language as much as her traditional pictorial technique. Figures are the sole focus of attention of her huge canvasses, which often cannot contain the whole figure in the same way that our selves cannot control our bodies.

Her painting and her skill at drawing spawn a multiplicity of realities that build movement. The Broad, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; and Saatchi Collection, London. Saville’s work was included in the 50th Biennale di Venezia in 2003.

Interview with Canadian figurative painter Andrew Salgado

Interview by Maclean's Magazine
Forthcoming solo exhibitions include TEN, a survey exhibition at The Canadian High Commission, Trafalgar Square, London

Andrew Salgado has been hailed as one of the most promising young figurative painters working today, riding atop 11 sold-out exhibitions, and being endorsed by critics like Tony Godfrey, Edward Lucie-Smith, and more. Saatchi Art calls him "one to invest in now"; and Artsy states he 'complicates portraiture [with] a sense of frailty and potency'.

He has been featured in GQ, the Evening Standard, The Independent, METRO, The Globe and Mail (CAN), Macleans (CAN), and more. In 2015 Salgado curated The Fantasy of Representation at Beers London, including work by Francis Bacon, Gary Hume, and Hurvin Anderson. He is featured in 100 Painters of Tomorrow, (Thames & Hudson, 2014), and is subject of a 2015 documentary He frequently gives to charities, including Terrence Higgins Trust.

This is followed by an institution exhibition, A Room With a View of the Ocean with Rhys Lee at Lauba Art House in Zagreb, Croatia (May 2017). In 2015 Salgado curated The Fantasy of Representation at Beers London, including work by Francis Bacon, Gary Hume, and Hurvin Anderson.

An Interview with Nick Cave at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston

Interview at the ICA Boston in February. Cave’s sculptures also include non-figurative assemblages, intricate accumulations of found objects that project out from the wall.

Artist Nick Cave spent several days installing his solo exhibition at the ICA Boston in February. While he was here, we asked him about the evolution of his newest works, the surprising inspiration behind his legendary Soundsuits, and what it feels like to put one on.


Nick Cave creates “Soundsuits”—surreally majestic objects blending fashion and sculpture—that originated as metaphorical suits of armor in response to the Rodney King beatings and have evolved into vehicles for empowerment. Fully concealing the body, the “Soundsuits” serve as an alien second skin that obscures race, gender, and class, allowing viewers to look without bias towards the wearer’s identity. The artist also works with choreographers, dancers, and amateur performers to produce lavish community celebrations in untraditional venues for art.

Dazzling in their movement, Cave’s sculptures are crafted in collaboration with artisans from a dizzying array of materials that include beads, raffia, buttons, sequins, twigs, fur, and fabric.
