African Arts ― Global Conversations 

African Arts―Global Conversations draws from the Brooklyn Museum’s extensive and renowned collections to assert the importance of African arts within the art historical canon. Spanning the entire Museum, the exhibition questions dominant narratives from Western art history and museum practices that have traditionally sidelined African arts, and makes important connections between the continent’s various artistic practices and those of other global cultural groups.

We are the Chicken - Domestication By Koen Vanmechelen

Man is part of the great whole and does not stand above nature. That the human animal is exceptional, is merely an illusion. Like other animals, he is governed by biology and by the laws that govern other animals. Suddenly, within a few weeks, we have become the chicken that has to be kept indoors, cordoned-off, kept apart.

Alpha Crucis - Contemporary African Art

Alpha Crucis underlines the originality and diversity of African artists who live and work in sub-Saharan Africa. The exhibition curated by André Magnin brings together three generations of artists who mostly live in large urban centres. It is not what they have in common that unites them, nor what kind of subject matter upon which they draw, but the necessities they have followed and what they lead us to think about.

Why I didn’t Visit the European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) this Year

Why I didn’t Visit the European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) this Year

"I was a young adult when I visited TEFAF the first time. The 2020 edition could have been my 30th visit. For the first 20 years I visited TEFAF with my uncle, a smart man. He could determine the most expensive piece between 2 almost identical still life flowers from the old masters. I remember Mr Noortman’s booth at the entrance. Mr Noortman was always smoking a cigar. At Mr Loek Brons’ booth you could always grab a Dutch mint candy. The entrance was decorated with the most beautiful flower bouquets (I look differently at the flowers now). It was an impressive fair".

Love, Ren Hang

Love, Ren Hang

One of the actual shows at C/O Berlin is an homage to Ren Hang, Chinese photographer and poet died in 2007 at the age of twenty-nine. ‘Love’ is the title. Ren’s photos include nude groups and solo portraits of women and men often creating sculptures of intersected bodies. Animals are also used in many pictures and there is a very fine interaction between the two forms of life. Two different creatures, animals and humans, are represented into a dialogue of forms and compositions and the different bodies are shown naked as the nature created.
