Gülbin Ünlü is Gülbin Ünlü
Posted on August 11th, 2014 at 12:49 pm by admin

»Nix verstehen ist besser als gar nichts« [Not understanding is better than nothing at all]. That was the theme of Gülbin Ünlü’s latest exhibition. Gülbin Ünlü is Gülbin Ünlü! And Gülbin Ünlü would not be Gülbin Ünlü if she wouldn’t produce those nice pieces of art like Gülbin Ünlü does. At the art:ig gallery in Munich for example. Gülbin presented a very tight and nice variety of her legislation in mixed media: Ebru, painting, collage and digital artworks. Especially this first picture was my absolute favorite. Sorry for the shitty quality of the photos. I should get used to take a better cam with me at all times. [Thanx for this nice view on your work Gülbin!]

Grosz – War Grotesque
Posted on July 7th, 2014 at 9:16 pm by admin

Buchheim Museum

Sunday was Groszday. I mean it was a beautiful day. The weather was tiptop and we made a trip for once. We drove down to the lovely Lake Starnberg to visit the opening of an exhibition at the Buchheim Museum. And that was the place were it got amazingly Grosz. Because they are just showing over 200 great works by George Grosz: grafix, sketches, paintings, sculptures and multimediadocuments. I have been a Grosz fan already since quite a while, so I was overwhelmingly happy getting the chance looking at the intense pieces of this unique artist (1893 – 1959). [Thanx a lot to Annette & Marlene for the invitation and thanx so much to Ira, Hélène & Giacomo for joining.]

You should go to the Buchheim Museum and check out this very special exhibition, if you are around that area >> it’s running till the 2nd of November 2014. Don’t miss it!

NOMNOMVEGA/AUGUSTCC
Posted on May 31st, 2014 at 9:38 pm by admin

Yesterday I visited this vernissage at MMA – Mixed Munich Arts. It was the exhibition of NOMNOMVEGA and AUGUSTCC, two extraordinary persons and well ambitious photographers. NOMNOMVEGA is Nadya Vanessa Vega. Rawness but squareness seems to be a motto of her partly quite erotic pictures which look like taken from the real surreal life. Unordinary crooked people in a well-balanced camera-captured environment. AUGUSTCC is August Castell-Castell. In his photos you find the effervescence of euphoric inebriate people sucking in the captivating damp of the world in one moment or two. Snatches of instant happenings, key moments of auspiciousness and insensibility for aggravating inconveniences.

NOMNOMVEGA & AUGUSTCC

The vernissage was very well-visited. Due to reflexions I was unable to shoot accurate photos of the single framed pictures. Thats why I will only show a few impressions here. You should definitely visit the artists websites to get a fully loaded indentation about the distinguished works of them two.

Art of the Streets – Shoreditch
Posted on May 29th, 2014 at 3:19 am by admin

Suggested by friends we did this Street-Art-Tour through London East. With nicest 28° we followed the leader to discover plenty murals, past-ups, stick-ups, graffitis and stencils. Karim gave a lot of insights and background-stories on the many artists working there legally and illegally. Within the four hours tour [!] we’ve seen works by Christiaan Nagel, Stik, Invader, Obey Giant, C215, Eine, Xylo, dr.d, Phlegm, Roa, Ben Wilson, Dal East, El Mac, Thierry Noir, Clet Abraham and Pablo Delgado who has a current exhibition at Howard Griffin Gallery where the tour ended. The tour was definitely good and I have the straight feeling I will do it again some day. There is too much to see and the pieces of work change quite rapidly. And well, I took too many fotos to show them all here, so I dropped a lot of them on >> flickr >> check them out if you like. Sorry if I forgot to name a few important artists here, it’s just too much to handle. I did my best. [Thanks a lot to Ira, Assia, Schucko, Laura and J.J.F. for a splendid time and thanx to Karim and the crew from streetartlondon.co.uk/tours >>]

Gabriela von Habsburg
Posted on May 21st, 2014 at 1:13 am by admin

About two weeks ago Gabriela von Habsburg showed plenty of her lithographies and some of her smaller iron-sculptures at the German Hop Museum in Wolnzach. Listen up: It’s Hop Museum, not Hip Hop Museum. Exactly, it’s the stuff you make beer from. Joking aside: Eduard Kastner from the Kastner AG opened the evening with a speech on the upcoming european elections. The vernissage was very well visited. A few hundred people, I would guess, started absorbing the artworks of Gabriela before heading over to the amazing buffet waiting outside. The tables were stuffed with characteristic snacks from all european nations. All in all it was a pretty interesting event. [Thanks a lot to Eduard Kastner for the invitation!]

Atelier Rosa

Claudia Macias and Rafael Ruz Valencia had this lovely exhibition today at Atelier Hermann Rosa in Munich. Sneaking through hedges and trees we found this beautiful atelier-place of the sculptor Hermann Rosa were Claudia and Rafael showed some of their impressive works. Surrounded by nice people we did experience fine oil-paintings. I wish we could have stayed much longer. [Thank you for this very special private view!]

[The Landing]
Posted on April 10th, 2014 at 11:51 pm by admin

Die Landung

Die Landung [The Landing] – Gülbin Ünlü and Helene Gette are presenting an installation of hanging paintings at the Akademiegalerie in Munich. Their ambition is to push the room into new scenarios by not using the usual walls it provides. As result they created a parkour of their artworks relating to the escape plans of the “New World”, like “MarsOne 2023”. At the opening the two artists gently took the visitors hooked under and showed them around, explaining all the certain bits of their works, handing over their own interpretation personally.

Die Landung

Gülbin Ünlü works in different layers with oil, ebru and oilchalk on canvas. “Camofleisch – Schinken” on the left and “Camofleisch – Döner” on the right, both 2014

Die Landung

Helene Gette is using mixed media and collage on canvas. The picture on the left is called: “damit wäre das auch erledigt – Aufruf zur Glättung der heiligen Dreifaltigkeit” 2013. And the other one on the right: “Prachtvoll Lang” 2013

Die Landung

“Sign of the Ü” and “NAA’H!” by Gülbin Ünlü. Oil, Ebru and Oilchalk on canvas, 2014

Die Landung

On the left: „Zur Wiedereröffnung des Asybewerberheims in Hoyerswerda“, mixed media, MRT-Images, serigraph in collage on canvas and on the right: „Russ Meyer on Canvas – Statement zu Russland” mixed media on canvas, both 2014

Die Landung

And finally there was the performance-concert of their band “Big Bezness”

Die Landung

Gülbin & Helene did rock the performance right

Die Landung

Gülbin Ünlü is Gülbin Ünlü!

Maybe it was too loud for people with tender ear canals. You can visit the exhibition still till the 25th of April at the Akademiegalerie [Subwaystation, University]. Further details and opening-times you may find here >> [Thanx to Gülbin and Helene for a funky evening! Thanx to Felix for the company! I Hope your tinnitus is gone by now.]

[Machines do not lie]
Posted on March 1st, 2014 at 7:43 am by admin

“Maschinen lügen nicht– Machines do not lie” was the theme of the exhibition Tim Wolff gave today at the Nusser & Baumgart Gallery. Tim’s works within the lines act like words and he puts them together into new constructions and ever new assemblies. It is like he is seeking for the basic language everyone spoke before, before culture was even invented … a long time before, a long time before everything became so complicated … and the machines speak this language today, and they speak it simple, clear and easy. The machines they shout it out at us in a straight way. The machines, they don’t care, they don’t lie. [Thanx for a great evening with a lot of philosophical impulse and thanx for being there with such nice people]

In a hidden room, behind draperies, a massive video-play is waiting for you. You have to watch this clash of commercials and cut-outs, put together into a damn nice screening, absorbing the mind and spilling out a lot of inspiration into the brains of the people consuming it at all times. Five TVs, in a set, producing an atmosphere of confusion and desire. The sound of the thing really got me freaking. You have to feel the basslines and the choreography of the screens together with their own single sounds; it’s mind-blowing … well done Tim! The exhibition will last till the 8th of April.

Last Friday, the 17.1.2014, Claudia Macias, Timor Miscevic and myself had the pleasure throwing an exhibition at the Weltraum in Munich. We where completely astonished that so many nice people came along. At this point we would like to shout out a big “thank you all”, especially to Rudi for hosting us. Here we go with some impressions before the thing took place. [Dani Schvarcz took a lot of cool photos during that evening, thank you so much for that.

Biennalissimo!
Posted on July 4th, 2013 at 9:53 pm by admin

Ah Venezia! Venice is of course a beautiful city and for people interested in arts it’s a hot and long pavement. The two main-areas (Giardini and Arsenale) of the Biennale are big and not so overcrowded like the small paths (Impossible to walk in that mud Hunter would say) but it is also impossible to see all the Biennale in one day. It’s just too much to experience and some of the things are truly damn nice. Scattered over the city you can also find a lot of other pavilions. Some of them are not easy to find, but exactly that makes it even more charming: getting lost again and again and discovering always new places. Altogether it was a very nice journey. I am sure I will return to check out the rest some day. [Thanx to Ira, Lizzy & Joe to be present]

Don’t worry they are not wasted; it’s a performance by Tino Sehgal [>>] with changing performers. Honestly I heard better beatboxing before and the singing scared the hell out me.

The israeli pavilion showed some nice technocratic tunes on screen and some kind of a horrorshow by Gilad Ratman [>>]. I liked the dark atmosphere in there.
