Highlights of the month

Johanna von Monkiewitsch: Which is the case.

⟶ 08.09.24 at Leopold-Hoesch-Museum (DE)

Large-format framed works on paper, created continuously over the last few years, will be on display for the first time in a representative overview. They will be combined with installative interventions in the space based on video projections of recorded daylight. To this end, the artist utilises existing architectural features on site and uses complementary sculptural forms made of materials such as foam, marble or salt.

(F)LUXUS Nicholas Warburg

⟶ 28.07.24 at NAK Neuer Aachener Kunstverein (DE)

From June 9 to July 28, 2024, NAK Neuer Aachener Kunstverein is showing the exhibition FLUXUS by Nicholas Warburg. The duration includes the sixtieth anniversary of the Aachen Fluxus Festival on July 20, 1964, which in turn took place on the twentieth anniversary of the Stauffenberg assassination. Warburg is practicing the preservation of traces of a movement that spent and wasted itself in rebellion against rigid border guarding in the arts: Fluxus=luxury? The central work of the solo show will be an expansive “Crazy Wall”; a pinboard with photos, maps, newspaper clippings and diagrams, diligently repainted by the artist in a forensic manner – connected with red string, in the way that investigators or ritual murderers do in films. In Warburg’s Crazy Wall, the boundary between the creation of meaning and paranoia is fluid: BENDLERBLOCK BEUYS MEMORIAL STATION OF EXPANDED CONCEPT OF RESISTANCE.
