Araeen is a civil engineer, an artist, writer and inventor with an international patent. He has created the most important international periodical on the global art scene outside the west and the lost modernity, Third Text. Critical Perspectives on Contemporary Art & Culture, in 1987.

The Song of the Line. Stephan von Huene :: The artist Stephan von Huene (19322000), renown as creator of sound sculptures, was also an outstanding visual artist. In cooperation with the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the exhibition The Song of the Line offers a first overview of his entire graphic oeuvre. In California of the 1960s, Huene created pen and ink and pencil drawings, which attest to his familiarity with the works of Pablo Picasso, the North American sculptures of the Kwakiutl Indians, and the cartoon drawings of the Disney imperium - The exhibition runs until October 3rd, 2010 ⁄⁄ more

Wunderkammer Wissenschaft - An exhibition at the interface of art, aesthetics and sciences :: Science is aesthetics. Leaving incomprehensible technical terms and dry formulas behind, the touring exhibition "Wunderkammer Wissenschaft [The Curiosity Cabinet of Science]", presents fascinating images to marvel at and to relax with when seeing. The show gives insights into complex measuring instruments and experiments, views of extreme landscapes and cosmic catastrophes and moving close-ups of nano-pyramids and biological structures - The exhibition runs until September 26th, 2010 ⁄⁄ more

Wolf Kahlen. VideoTapes 1969-2010 :: Wolf Kahlen, who has turned 70 this year, is one of the most important German video pioneers. Yet as soon as the visitor enters the space, he or she is in an audiovisual reading room, a site of calm and undisturbed study. The exhibition is supplemented by six video sculptures, including two found in the collection of the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art, which have been restored for the occasion and can thereby be viewed for the first time in many years - The exhibition runs until September 26th, 2010 ⁄⁄ more

fast forward 2. The Power of Motion - Media Art Sammlung Goetz :: Seven years after "fast forward," the exhibition fast forward 2 will show a wide range of new video acquisitions from the internationally renowned private collection of Ingvild Goetz from Munich. With her impressive collection, originating from the 1960s, she has put together a museum-quality panorama of contemporary art that is as comprehensive as it is personal. Participating artists (selected): Francis Alÿs, Janine Antoni, Matthew Barney, Ulla von Brandenburg, Mike Kelley, Óscar Muñoz, Marcel Odenbach, Hans Op de Beeck, Yang Fudong, Zhao Liang, and others - The exhibition runs until October 3rd, 2010 ⁄⁄ more

Robert Wilson. Video Portraits :: Although Robert Wilson refuses to interpret his works, he gladly takes on the task of interpretation when it has to do with personalities. He created his first portraits of important personalities, such as Louis Aragon, Pontus Hultén, and Helene Rochas already in the 1970s. Wilson has concentrated all of his experiences as worldwide celebrated visual and object artist, as stage designer and director, as choreograph and curator in his video portraits since 2004, as the technological possibilities of High Definition television allow him to differentiate the wealth of his pictorial and stage languages - The exhibition runs until August 22nd, 2010 ⁄⁄ more

Jürgen Klauke. Aesthetic Paranoia :: In his photographs Jürgen Klauke contemplates in austerely minimal to excessive, sometimes also surreal scenes, the basic conditions of paranoid existence. Using quotidian materials as a means of staging his photos, he achieves a concentrated look at the absurdity of life and the systematic collisions between subject and system, stimulus and reaction. As one of the seminal photo and media artists in Germany, Jürgen Klauke has achieved pioneering art work in the area of Body Art and critical confrontation with socially normed gender identities and social patterns of behavior - The exhibition runs until October 3rd, 2010 ⁄⁄ more
