'Future Woman // Remake me', Artist residency of project room series.
KINDL - Centre for Contemporary Art, Berlin
22 octobre - 19 février 2017
The painter Eberhard Havekost, who was born in 1967 in Dresden, is among the most important German artists of his generation. The starting point for his painting is his own or found photographs, which he digitally edits and then uses as templates for his paintings. Havekost thus makes use of the latest advances in digital photo editing, while also dealing with the effects of the endless production of images through digital media. With an impressive radicalness, the artist questions the authenticity of images: What is it that we see? How much reality is in the surface of things and their likenesses?
The exhibition Inhalt concentrates on Eberhard Havekost’s work from the past ten years with a focus on new series of works that will be shown at the KINDL for the first time. After important solo exhibitions at venues including the Museum Küppersmühle Duisburg (2013), the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt (2010), and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (2006), Inhalt is the first institutional exhibition by Eberhard Havekost in Berlin.
A publication will accompany the exhibition.

The Duchamp Effect. Readymade ••›
11 décembre - 26 février 2017
The concept of the readymade was ‘born’ in 1916 when Marcel Duchamp, in New York, defined it in a letter to his sister in Paris. The aim of the readymade is to achieve a radical revaluation of artistic production: this consists principally of an act of selection and reduction applied to already existing elements, with the focus on ‘exhibition-immanent’ aspects such as presentation, communication, documentation, and dissemination. Furthermore, the readymade redefines the reality character and the reproduction function of the artwork as well as the role of observers as ‘interpreters’. The exhibition ‘The Duchamp-Effect. Readymade’ explores the historical and contemporary significance of the readymade, using artworks from the collection. The intention is that the aspects of art theory and art criticism should be incorporated as critical factors in the history of the reception of readymades.
