>> Raving in the Rain <<
Posted on May 14th, 2013 at 1:08 pm by admin
The Club Autonomica events (Facebook-group >>) have become a quite famous thing these times in the Munich clubbing-scene (@Kong >>). Apart from that they are organizing massive rave-partys, openair-style, with various areas. I haven’t been to a proper rave in years. So I was more than thrilled to get the opportunity to join this one. And truly, especially outside in the garden the sound and the whole flair was damn nice. Pretty young but happy people, big beats, Carlsberg and from time to time some drizzling rain. I didn’t now a single name on the line-up, sorry guys, I am out of it since a long time, but I did enjoy the tunes anyway.
Like all good things the Autonomica-Team started in the underground with their urban-art gallery project “Galeria Autonomica” initiated by Christoph Pankowski and Christian Minke. They have been supporting urban- and installation-artists with making exhibitions in untenanted flats or on public space mixing it up with party and music (OFF/ON FORUM >>). For further events you should join their facebook-group >>. As well you can grap a funky fanzine for 2,50 € (Email to firstname.lastname@example.org; Kleine Schwester Verlag >>) [Thanx to Veronika, Natalie, Christoph, Goran, Dominik and Joe for having a good time! The next rave must come and we will be there!]

Pickled Good Words in Space
Posted on April 27th, 2013 at 1:05 am by admin
Today I had the great pleasure to look at the works of Peter Schaffhauser at Weltraum 26 in Munich. Peter is collecting nostalgic stuff and he puts the things together into new context. As viewer you instantly start puzzling about the meaning. And you will find a lot of those meanings yourself. When I entered at first I thought the titels of the artworks are blank, but it turned out that you can open the little cards displayed next to the pieces, to find truly great conclusions about the things put together. Apart from doing those cool things Peter writes columns for the online-paper agitano [>>]. If you want to look at his works, the exhibition is still on for the whole week. Make an appointment at Weltraum26 [>>] to see all of it. You shouldn’t miss it. [Thanx to Rudi for the invitation and thanx to Peter for the nice works to look at and think about; also thanks to Goran, Jochen, Felix & Bianca, Andi & Angie, that we have met there... I really enjoyed that evening!]
Grand Canyon Germs!

Back in the USA! Germs made a grand tour through the beauty of the Grand Canyon. Hitting from the Rainbow Bridge over the Vermillion Highway to the North and the South Rim. Mostly they occupied rare geological-site-signs. The perfect habitat. [Thanx again to Annöle!]

Real Fiction & More
Posted on February 2nd, 2013 at 4:07 pm by admin
Yesterday I entered the Heitsch Gallery. First I got captured by the poligon-works of Moto Waganari aka Lutz Wagner, or rather Lutz Wagner aka Moto Waganari. However. His 3D-grid-sculptures apear as they are thrown into light-installations, mirroring themselves in clear 2D on the walls. Some of them are hanged up and they move very slowly, taken by soft turbulences within the premises, performing changing formations with their shadows.
“Tape” by Moto Waganari
“Skydiver” by Moto Waganari
“Beretta” by Moto Waganari
“Fiction” by Moto Waganari
“Baby Prayer” by Moto Waganari
In another room abstract paintings by Antonio Marra and sculptures by Yoshiyuki Miura where waiting to be seen and absorbed.
Three pictures in one. The perspective makes the deal. A multi-dimensional painting: “Fernwehfreude” [Wanderlust pleasure] by Antonio Marra.
One more multi-dimensional painting: “Die Logik des immer Mehr” [The logic of more and more] by Antonio Marra. The artist works with holographic furrows reflecting new variations of op-art and orphism.
Impressions of Yoshiyuki Miuras sculptures, which apparently have no titel.
All in all a very nice exhibition and it was a pleasure having a walk-through [Thanx to Bianca & Felix for company]. It is still running till the 23th of february 2013 and is definitely worth visiting.
You can find more and deeper information about the artists at Gallery Heitsch [Website >>].

Consume against all reason
Posted on January 18th, 2013 at 5:49 pm by admin
Deepest Winter in Munich can’t stop art! Yesterday I managed slogging myself through the snow to visit the opening of the exhibition “Consume against all reason” (Konsumieren wider aller Vernunft) at Galerie Stephan Stumpf. The show is still running till the 23th of february [flyer pdf >>]. All the artworks examine critical thoughts about consumerism. There are a lot of things to see on three levels. Since I got sucked into the basement first I will start from bottom to top with the impressions:
In the very last room in the cellar is a screening of the truly remarkable stop-motion-short-movie “weirdo’s Brain” by Bianca Kennedy. You should definitely grap a seat and watch protagonist Lenny in his surreal world, freaking out completely after trying to get down with an inflatable doll, falling even deeper in even more surrealistic rooms, finding strange tasks. [Website of Bianca Kennedy >> Youtube-Channel >>]
Grandmas recycled cups by Anka Büchler [Website >>] (Thanx to Illian and Patrizia for modeling on the picture)
“Finger” by Fabian Fontain [Website >>]
“Seibutsuga” (Japanese for still life) by Giuseppe Fiore [Website >>]
“reCODE me VICTIMS” by Barbara Rapp [Website >>]
On my way back up from the basement I got hit by the performance “Berries of Wrath” by Carolin Weinert where she eats and disgorges strawberries into a bowl. The performance is finished when the bowl is empty (!) [Website >>]
Photography by Ute Friederike Schernau. Pretty hard to take proper fotos there, I couldn’t remove all the humans [Website >>]
“Portrait”, sort of a braiding made of packaging film by Anna Schulz-Pitsch [Website >>]
And finally the great Oilpainting “Cempedaks Aufbruch – Stachelquell” by Illian Sagenschneider [Website >>]
There were two more artist but I was unable to take accurate pictures of their work. I am terribly sorry about that! Photography by Jan van Ijken [Website >>] and paintings of Marcus Günther [Website >>] (You can find a nice painting of him on the flyer to the exhibition >>).

Sex through death

Today I entered the Richard Tator Cult Szosziety at an exhibition in munich and I was astonished by some great artworks and by the performance of the guy Richard Tator himself. I am not sure if he is one person or the four of them. Let’s keep it a secret! But anyway in total it was a nice show! The exhibition is still running till the 18.12.2012 in the subwaystation of university, munich! Make a visit! Its worth it!
