A Matter of Perception

Exhibition & auction in celebration of 10 Years of DAMN° magazine, Broeltoren, Broelkaai, Kortrijk, Belgium, 18 – 26 October, 12:00 – 21:00.

To celebrate the first decade of DAMNº we invited a wild bunch of 50 designers & artists who have been circling around our camps for the last couple of years. With the working title ‘A Matter of Perception’ - a baseline we launched some two years ago to mark the difference of the magazine’s approach - all of them came back with a personal piece, a small token of participation and connectivity. Anyway, here’s the deal: we present all the works in a sort of ‘gesamtkunstwerk’ on the top floor of this medieval tower, where each piece can be valued an..

Exhibition by Flos during Biennale Interieur, Broeltoren, Kortrijk, Belgium, 18-26 October, 12:00 – 21:00.

«When I sit on a train travelling, I always see these strings of electricity out of the window. It’s so beautiful and poetic the way they connect the pylons but at the same time they divide the landscape. I wanted to translate this into interior architecture,» Michael Anastassiades says about String Lights, the lamp he designed for Flos.During the Interieur Biennial, the renowned Italian lighting company occupies all three floors of the Broeltoren in Kortrijk. Michael Anastassiades’s String Lights installation is presented on the first floor, creating a sensoria..

10 years DAMnº

2014 marks the first decade of DAMN°. In October 2004 we sailed into Kortrijk for Interieur on our largely trusty barge, to launch a magazine that made true connections rather than perfunctory parallels with the many worlds of design, architecture, and art. Older, wiser, wonderful-er, and not at all weary of questioning evolution or revolution, we return to the Biennale to celebrate our anniversary on dry, yet fertile ground, at an event that expresses our curious core and the tales we have told about creators & inventors, designers & architects, artists & photographers,..

Panamarenko Universum

Exhibition, MuHKA, Antwerp, Belgium until 22 february 2015

Panamarenko Universum is a lively retrospective on one of the few artists of the post-war European avant-garde: Panamarenko. His name will always be linked to the city of Antwerp, and he is an artist of reference for the M HKA, which is why his artist’s house is safely situated in the Biekorf street. With this exhibition, the M HKA now lays the groundwork for an international canonical image on the basis of of three facets of his extensive oeuvre: works, deeds, and thoughts.

Cartographies of the Absolute, by Alberto Toscano & Jeff Kinkle

Discussion, Artists Space Books & Talk, New York, USA, 10 october, 7pm.

Alberto Toscano and Jeff Kinkle's forthcoming book, Cartographies of the Absolute, addresses the proliferation of works in the visual arts, film and literature that seek to tackle the representation of contemporary capitalism. Their research, which began in 2009 with a collaborative text on the HBO series The Wire, forms a critical survey of works that "totalize" current conditions and look to "thematize those facets of social existence which are particularly symptomatic of the trends and tensions in today's political economy: financial markets, logistical complex..

Sensing the future: László Moholy-Nagy, the media and the arts

Exhibition, Bauhaus-Archiv, Berlin, Germany, 8 october 2014 - 12 january 2015.

In his artistic work and experimental use of new media, the avant-gardist and Bauhaus teacher László Moholy-Nagy overstepped the boundaries of the conventional view of art. His methods were marked by interdisciplinary approaches, while at the same time fundamentally questioning the traditional perception of art. He was thus far ahead of his time and was already raising issues that are still relevant today. Moholy-Nagy’s multifaceted media art, as well as works by contemporary artists, have an immediate effect on the viewer’s various senses and thus convey new w..

Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not a Metaphor

Exhibition, MoMA, New York, USA, until 18 January 2015

Gober rose to prominence in the mid-1980s and was quickly acknowledged as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Early in his career he made deceptively simple sculptures of everyday objects – beginning with sinks and moving-on to domestic furniture such as playpens, beds, and doors. In the 1990s, his practice evolved from single works to theatrical, room-sized environments. Featuring loans from institutions and private collections in North America and Europe, along with selections from the artist’s collection, the exhibition includes around 130 pieces across..
