El Lissitzky and Ilya Kabakov are representatives of the former Soviet Union, who stand for the two generations to follow that brought revolution and the implementation of the Communist visions, and who construct and deconstruct these visions by means of powerful visuals. Ilya Kabakov engages in a dialogue with the leading thinker of the Russian avantgarde, El Lissitzky, who with his designs was key in shaping a period of upheaval, placing art directly in the service of social reform.

Nakamura Kazumi started his full-fledged career as a painter in the early 1980s, and has been one of the most active among his generation of contemporary artists. What is painting? For what purpose does it exist? Nakamura started out to answer these questions by studying the Abstract Expressionist paintings of artists such as Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Barnett Newman, whose works were considered to represent the culmination of modernist painting in the West, while pursuing a new type of painting and theory to supersede them.

Van der Nat worked for many years as a make-up artist and began to document his surroundings through Polaroid shots. Recently his approach has evolved into a more formal and sustained engagement with this flexible medium, and ‘Mr. Polaroid ’ showcases the exciting middle ground between backstage and the studio. The resulting images are a focused yet suggestive moment in time, pushing the viewer to confront sexuality head-on.

Multimedia | Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, Poland | Saturday 15 February 2014 - Sunday 1 June 2014
As You Can See: Polish Art Today is the first comprehensive presentation of cutting-edge Polish art in over a decade, structured around the most interesting works, approaches and topics present in contemporary art in recent years. The curators have deliberately opted for the conservative format of an artistic salon, moving the emphasis away from experimentation with the structure of the exhibition onto the works of art themselves. Yet, this is a singular salon: critical, liberating, psychedelic, often brutal and perverse, dense and ambiguous.

Shinil Kim has been interested in obscuring the borders of categories set by human senses. This idea is well expressed through videos, pressed line drawings, and sculptures comprising letters and characters. His videos mostly express images as lights, which tear down the boundary of each image. His colorless drawings pull down ideational preconceptions that we have about colors. His letter sculptures project vague limitations derived from the categorization processes of language that refer to things or emotions.

More than 100 million pictures are uploaded each day on Facebook worldwide, the number of pictures taken in Germany sums up to over 200 million a day. This development and its consciously critical examination are the starting point of the conceptual self-understanding of the artist Philipp Keel. If one understands the overwhelming quantity of pictures as a medial parallel reality that mostly intents to preserve its true image, Philipp Keel’s works need to be understood as a deliberate antagonism resolving from this parallel reality: personal, paradox, unconventional thinking.

Erwin Blumenfeld is considered to be one of the early pioneers of fashion photography alongside George Hoyningen-Heune, Cecil Beaton, and Horst P. Horst. It was not only his employment of experimental techniques in the darkroom, Dada and Surrealist influences, and novel street work, but Blumenfeld’s unique and masterly combination of elegance and eroticism that transformed fashion into high art and paved the way for Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Herb Ritts, and other photographers who enjoyed such prominence and recognition in the history of art.
