Daniel Knorr’s work is the materialization of an explosion. The sculpture shows a process that spans only fractions of a second: the volume extension caused by the shock wave is suspended and becomes haptically graspable. We are familiar with explosions from the media mainly, through embedded journalism, and the popularity of first-person shooters. The notion of explosives as symbols of powerful, intensive moments has become an everyday metaphor. Explosion is a sculpture specifically developed for its site and will be presented by the KUNSTHALLE wien together with the Romanian Cultural Institute in Vienna.

Narelle Autio’s new series, Water hole, celebrates the otherworldly beauty of the dark waters she encountered whilst travelling through parts of Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia. Driving through these dry and remote areas of Australia, she found herself pulled towards the isolated bodies of water that dot the landscape. These waterholes dictated the path of her travels, crossing the parched earth of the day to arrive at waters edge by afternoon.

For almost 150 years, one of the greatest literary inventions has fascinated children and adults alike: Lewis Carroll's tale of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Soon after it was first published, the story of the little girl's journey down a rabbit hole and – in the sequel – through a mysterious looking glass, quickly captured the imagination of a wide circle of readers that included Queen Victoria and Oscar Wilde. Carroll's stories continue to captivate an audience of millions.

Mostly Agree takes an outside-the-box look at identity within the corporate world. The selected artists use photomedia, video and sculptural forms to explore with humour and sensitivity the pressures of fitting in to an environment where corporate identity is paramount and there is no I in team. In this GFC-aftermath era, the balance between asserting one’s individuality and toeing the line feels all the more precarious, and by re-imagining and re-working the formulaic aesthetics of office décor, business attire, personal grooming, and by-the-book modes of behaviour, these artists explore the workplace as a site for the complex negotiation of all things generic.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will host the sole West Coast presentation of Cindy Sherman, a traveling retrospective of one of the most significant contemporary artists and arguably the most influential one working exclusively with photography. Known for photographing herself in a range of guises and personas that are by turns amusing and disturbing, distasteful and affecting, Sherman has built an international reputation for an extraordinary body of work. Tracing her career from the mid-1970s to present, the exhibition is the first major U.S. retrospective of the artist in nearly 15 years, introducing Sherman to a new generation of audiences.

Apart from creating the exhibition installation "X-STaTIC PRO=CeSS" with photographs and videos of Madonna, Klein has worked with celebrities like Britney Spears, David Beckham, and recently, Kate Moss and Lady Gaga.

Photography | Hous Projects, New York, United-States | Thursday 21 June 2012 - Saturday 1 September 2012
Edward Abbey once wrote “You can't study the darkness by flooding it with light.” The photography of Scott B. Davis is charged with the same notion. Originally from Maryland, Davis emulated the westward journey of Charles Fletcher Lummis and was bewitched by the spirit of the desert and its magical transformation at day’s end. Studying photography at the University of New Mexico, he discovered his passion and his destiny. Davis remains fascinated by the desert landscapes and towns of California with his new work concentrating on subjects closer to his home in San Diego.

Perhaps more than any other 20th-century painter, Vasily Kandinsky (b. 1866, Moscow; d. 1944, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France) has been closely linked to the history of the Guggenheim Museum. Hilla Rebay—artist, art advisor, and the museum’s first director—promoted nonobjective painting above all other forms of abstraction. She was particularly inspired by the work and writing of Kandinsky, a pioneer of abstraction, who believed that the task of the painter was to convey his own inner world, rather than imitate the natural world.

Since the early 1990s, Rineke Dijkstra has produced a complex body of photographic and video work, offering a contemporary take on the genre of portraiture. Her large-scale color photographs of young, typically adolescent subjects recall 17th-century Dutch painting in their scale and visual acuity. The minimal contextual details present in her photographs and videos encourage us to focus on the exchange between photographer and subject and the relationship between viewer and viewed. Rineke Dijkstra: A Retrospective brings together more than 70 photographs and five videos in a major mid-career survey, offering the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work to date.

The exhibition at CAMERA WORK shows works from the photographic oeuvre of Ralph Gibson that have been created over a period of 40 years – from the mystic-surrealistic photographs taken from the world-famous series »The Somnambulist« and works from his series »Deja-Vu« and »Days at Sea« to his recent nudes. Within Ralph Gibson’s body of work, the connecting characteristics of his visual concepts are a pronounced use of powerful black and white contrasts and a distinguishing graininess of the silver gelatine prints. The diversity of motives and subjects does not dampen the mysterious aura inherent in the photographs, blurring the lines between realism, surrealism, expressionism and metaphysic imagery.

Some Pictures of the Infinite tackles cosmic questions, tracing this persistent theme in the work of Josiah McElheny. Over the past two decades, the problem of infinity has driven McElheny’s efforts to represent the unrepresentable, as the infinite by definition must always elude stable grasp. The exhibition also examines images of time: archaeological time, linear and cyclical models, and the overwhelming span of cosmic time.

Since the late 1950s, Floris Neusüss (born 1937 in Lennep) has explored photography’s potential beyond its simple portrayal of the world around us. His photos achieve their impact thanks to the tension between the candor of the camera and the potential for surrealist interpretation. Neusüss blends keen consciousness of the technical and historical constraints of photography with a lyrical, even a dreamlike, eye.

Since the early 1960s, Burhan Do?ançay examines the social, cultural and political transformation of modern and contemporary urban culture through the use of walls. As an urban traveller, he has been tracking walls in various cities across the world for almost half a century. With the guise of an anthropologist, Do?ançay examines these surfaces that are open to all manners of contemporary interventions ranging from posters to slogans, and messages with sexual content to newspaper clippings. Do?ançay’s works with different techniques and styles, are positioned in both a historical and contemporary ground through their incorporation of the icons of popular culture and political symbols.

Modernism, an ideology that covers a range of styles, is rooted in the Russian and European avant-garde including Constructivism, Dada, De Stijl, Futurism, and the New Typography – movements which signaled a modernization of culture and society beginning in the early 20th century. Artists and designers made a conscious effort to reject ornamentation and historical styles, and instead chose to embrace abstract principles, clear communication, geometric forms and visual experimentation.
