Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff’s book collects black and white photographs taken at apartment viewings in Berlin, London and Zürich in 2015, and exhibited at Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi in Berlin the same year. The images render a landscape of apartments, mostly empty, punctuated by potential buyers or renters projecting their own possible futures onto the spaces. The photographs blend into each other as if one building, aggregating material treatments, fixtures, flooring, and faucets in their extraordinary specificity; or as if one city, seen from the inside as a picture of a private public sphere. The book includes a new text by writer Pablo Larios elaborating on the staging of personal environments and the relationship between figure and ground in Henkel and Pitegoff’s work.

Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff (b. 1988/1987, US) are artists who work together in Berlin. From 2013 until 2015 they ran New Theater in Berlin, a theater and performance space where they produced amateur plays with writers, musicians and visual artists. Their work has been shown at the 9th Berlin Biennale, Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin; Witte de With, Rotterdam; the Galerie für Zeitgennössische Kunst, Leipzig; the Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; the Kunsthalle Bern,; and the Whitney Museum, New York.

Transparenzen/Transparencies : The Ambivalence of a New Visibility
Simone Neuenschwander, Thomas Thiel (Eds.)


Edited by Simone Neuenschwander, Thomas Thiel

With contributions by Emmanuel Alloa, Neïl Beloufa, Clare Birchall, Juliette Blightman, Ryan Gander, Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff, David Horvitz, Metahaven, Simone Neuenschwander, Katja Novitskova, Yuri Pattison, Manfred Schneider, Thomas Thiel

The globalized world seems at once transparent and opaque. The exhibition project “Transparencies” examined the cultural facets and atmospheres of these (non-)transparencies. The two-part, joint exhibition project in Bielefeld and Nuremberg was dedicated to developments in “transparent society,” asking how these are reflected in the current work by contemporary artists. The paradigm of transparency and the ambivalence of the term was addressed by participating artists in multiple, diverse ways. This book documents both exhibitions and outlines all of the contributions to this substantial project. Conceptually designed by Metahaven, it contains artistic statements and scientific essays that encourage an ongoing discussion of the subject.

TEXTE ZUR KUNST #102
JUNE 2016 “FASHION”


Art and fashion have always been interrelated. And it’s due to fashion’s ability to quickly capture social shifts that the art world has repeatedly turned to it. But as Texte zur Kunst No. 102 proposes, it is fashion’s protagonists, recently, that have been markedly drawing on art conceptual practices (e.g., parasitism, collective authorship, détournement, and forms of institutional critique) as they push back against the pressures of a hyper-accelerated fashion market. In this issue, TzK examines, also, how the industry’s current volume is a product of its late-’00s promise of online democratization; the changing function of such long-held value designations as “luxury,” “discount,” and “underground,” and the role of “real”-er bodies in a climate wherein models are preferably “nodels” or “othered” bodies, hyper-individualised to stand out in the stream.
