The &ldquo\;PASOLINI ROMA&rdquo\; exhibition deals with the Italian writer and film-maker Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975) in the contex t of his relationship with Rome. Pasolini in Rome conjures up visions of po etry\, politics\, a zest for big-city living\, sex\, friendship and cinema.

\n

Pier Paolo Pasolini was one of the most outstanding and ambivalent personalities on the European intellectual scene of the post-war period. A s a lyricist in his native Friulian\, as the author of novels\, essays and columns on cultural and political issues\, as a director of controversial f ilms\, and also as a painter and graphic artist\, he sought to explore time less\, archaic themes: the fate of man\, rural life\, religion\, sexuality\ , death. In doing so he always avoided commonly accepted standards and crea ted images of extraordinary clarity and starkness\, thus becoming the most provocative figure in Italian society.

An exhibition presented by the Museum fü\;r Vor- und Fr& uuml\;hgeschichte (Staatliche Museen zu Berlin) in conjunction with the Nat ional Museum of Denmark\, Copenhagen\, and the British Museum\, London.

\n

From the Baltic\, the Vikings ventured as far west as North America an d as far east as the Black Sea\, in a period of expansion in which they wer e not only feared as raiders and pillagers\, but also greeted as traders an d settlers. Through their travels\, they came into contact with numerous\, vastly differing societies and cultures. As its central theme\, the exhibit ion explores this recipicity of influence and the diverse cultural contacts which the Vikings fostered. Drawing on the latest archaeological and histo rical research\, the exhibition will include recent\, major excavation find s\, now presented to the wider public for the first time.

\n

The centr epiece of the display is a vessel from Roskilde\, which stands as an impres sive symbol of the Viking Age\; measuring 37 metres in length\, it is the l ongest warship from this epoch ever to be found. The exhibition is divided into four thematic strands which branch off from the warship and lead the v isitor through the presentation\, with each theme illustrated by an array o f spectacular exhibits. The strands are titled: 'War and Conquest'\, 'Power and Dominion'\, 'Faith and Ritual'\, and 'Contacts and Exchange'. The exhi bition features splendid warrior graves and weapons finds\, rich grave good s for affluent women\, archaeologically important settlement finds\, as wel l as evidence of cultic and religious practices of enormous historical valu e.

Schinkel Pavillon presents a new installative and site-speci fic work by Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn (*1957)\, his first institutiona l solo show in Berlin. For \;Hö\;here Gewalt\, Hirschhorn will not add an artwork to the exhibition space but instead intends to enti rely deconstruct it.
Over the past twenty years Hirschhorn has created an oeuvre that questions the concept of art in the medium of installation and environment. The critical and political spaces that he creates are expl icitly open towards diverse audiences who are invited to engage in and in t urn activate the works. \;Hö\;here Gewalt \;continues the artist&rsquo\;s practice of transforming the white cube into large-scal e environments.

At the beginning of the 1990s\, Alexei Kostroma proclaimed a new trend in modern art &ndash\; the so-called &ldquo\;organic way&rdquo\; \, which began in the 20th century Russian avantgarde. Precisely this &ldqu o\;organic way&rdquo\;\, which investigates the developmental laws of livin g nature\, enabled Kostroma to argue his own perspective regarding the rela tions between theory and artistic practice in modern art. In his creative w ork he constantly examines the reciprocal relations between man and nature and allows the insights he gains in this way to flow into his social enviro nment. As an artist he works in a parallel way on several threads of a topi c\; on the foundation of natural phenomena\, he thematises problems specifi c to humanity as well as the world as a whole.
In his current series o f images entitled \;Anticipation \;he examines the economi c crisis and mountains of debt in the style of Bad Painting. What can be se en is a painterly trip around the world in numbers &ndash\; revealing his f aith in art but certainly not in the vague announcements of economic bosses and the political class. Kostroma spills the mood of the consumers into a wild\, furious scenario\, whereby people&rsquo\;s intuition matches the fru strating economic data outside Germany.

Alexei Kostroma\, born in t he city of Kostroma\, Russia in 1962\, lives and works in Berlin.

Sofia Bä\;cklund creates series or groups of sculptures\ , which both represent and abstract objects from our everyday environment. Her works focus on aspects of the interplay between individuals and society \, and on the role that material plays in these processes. One recurrent th eme in Bä\;cklund&rsquo\;s work is the necessity for limits and boundar ies to exist in order to create meaning.
For the group shown in Kü \;nstlerhaus Bethanien\, \;On (I mean come on)\, Bä\;cklun d brings together massive and textile materials and combines substructures made from metal rods welded together\, natural wood and rough paper with sp ecially dyed fabrics which form the &lsquo\;outer skin&rsquo\; of the sculp tures. In this context the various forms of the production process are also important to her\; in one and the same work\, therefore\, she contrasts a quickly completed process involving intense decision-making\, like welding\ , with the more contemplative\, time-consuming work of sewing. The height o f the sculptures is oriented on human dimensions and constitutes a referenc e to the human body\, as does Bä\;cklund&rsquo\;s choice of colours for the fabrics &ndash\; nuances of skin and powder colours.
On the other hand\, the forms are indicative of kitchen utensils\, bathtubs\, plants et c. Each sculpture makes up its own platform or scene.
In her works B&a uml\;cklund sounds out the diverse relations between human being and body\, social environment and history.

Hans Kristian Borchgrevink Hansen is concerned with the arti stic mapping of specific geographical areas\; for this purpose\, he uses fo und materials and film documentation of small discoveries he makes in the s treets\, in parks or at flea markets\, etc. The everyday objects (hair ties \, paper clips\, pieces of plastic) or fragments of them\, which the artist collects literally by hand or with the aid of his camera\, are combined in to a multifaceted image of the city&rsquo\;s visual undercurrents and resem ble miniatures of modernist sculpture with their often indefinable\, abstra ct forms. \;Hansen assembles these found objects and fragments into sma ll-format sculptural objects or makes them into protagonists in the scurril ous and humorous animation films he produces himself using the simplest of technology.
With \;Life in the Undergrowth \;Borchgre vink Hansen provides an equally fantastic\, entertaining and thoughtful ins ight into the urban undercurrents of Berlin as his temporary environment. T he exhibition shows large-format projections of two newly made animation fi lms as well as a collection of small-format sculptures covering a full wall \, constructed from snippets\, fragments and found objects\; the artist him self characterises this as a &ldquo\;cabinet of curiosities&rdquo\;.

It is generally the static to the monumental that is underst ood as sculpture\, but the sculptural works by Vera Kox concentrate far mor e on the fleeting and the transformable\, on the transitory nature of her s tarting material.
It sticks\, spills over\, crumples\, folds\, bulges and plays with the cognitive patterns of our perception like a trompe-l&rsq uo\;&oelig\;il. The presence of an exposure to strain can be seen and felt in all elements of Kox&rsquo\;s work\, often emphasised still more by the d iffering degrees of an object&rsquo\;s abnormality\; this exposure forms th e basis of the artistic work as a theorem inherent in the material.
In her exhibition \;Reassuring inertia \;at Kü\;nstlerha us Bethanien\, everyday materials are depicted with unlikely deformations\, allowing us to recognise traces of passing gestures. The process and possi bilities of formlessness provide a starting point for the works and suggest a phenomenological examination of whatever surrounds us each day.
The exhibition is accompanied by a text written by the Swedish artist Liv Stra nd.

Besides \;Das mechanische Corps\, the focal pro ject of our anniversary year is the artistic design of the firewall at Kott busser Str. 10\, which will be opened ceremonially along with the August so lo exhibitions on 21st August.
As the result of a closed competition\, the jury of experts Ellen Blumenstein\, Hans Hemmert\, Karin Kasbö\;ck \, Doreet LeVitte Harten and Sven Drü\;hl recommended a design by Israe li artist EREZ ISRAELI for realisation.
Israeli&rsquo\;s idea centres on the subject of memory and remembrance in the Jewish-German context\, but does not present the component of memory using the customary means for thi s theme\; he avoids pathos by integrating tendencies of Street Art\, for ex ample. Israeli&rsquo\;s mural painting action will restore its name to the building. In the course of anti-Jewish measures\, the Nazis had removed the names of famous Jewish businesses from house fronts. Following the names o f Jewish entrepreneurs\, it was the Jews themselves who disappeared. This i s the basis for the conceptual idea behind Erez Israeli&rsquo\;s powerful a rtistic design.
A video documentation by Erez Israeli will expound on the genesis of the mural.

Jacques Capellmann

\n< p>Als Kü\;nstler sieht Jaques Capellmann es als seine Aufgabe ein neutr ales Abbild seiner Umgebung zu schaffen. Dabei orientiert er sich an mit de r Kamera im urbanen Raum aufgenommene Schnappschü\;sse. In seiner Arbei t mö\;chte er mö\;glichst objektiv einen unmittelbaren Lebensraum r eflektieren was durchaus trist wirken kann. Nutzt Capellmann hingegen Media le Bilder entstehen entsprechend grelle und farblich eher angenehme Bilder. Die so resultierende\, durchaus provokative Konfrontation lä\;sst die Gegensä\;tze unsere Zeit gut sichtbar werden.

Bei seinen Ase mblagen und Collagen hingegen konzentriert Capellmann sein Schaffen bei der Komposition von Material und Farbe. Zwangslä\;ufig sind Gegenstä\; nde beim Betrachter immer mit Assoziationen verbunden\, noch mehr \; be i seinen Assemblagen als bei seiner Malerei.

\n

K&au ml\;the Bauer

\n

Die Arbeiten von Kä\;the Bauer bewegen sich im Gr enzbereich zwischen Figuration und Abstraktion. Die natü\;rliche Ersche inungsform der Dinge existiert dabei nur in Andeutungen\, die eine Brü\ ;cke herstellen sollen zwischen dem Bekannten und dem Unbekannten.Durch off enes Experimentieren und mithilfe einer intuitiven Ausdrucksweise soll eine r inneren Wirklichkeit Ausdruck gegeben\, Unbewusstes und Hintergrü\;nd iges sichtbar gemacht werden. Spontane\, phantastische Gebilde in einer ima ginä\;ren Gegenwelt entwickeln sich so aus dem Schaffensvorgang selbst heraus\, um dann meist als zentrale Figur im Bild zu stehen - in ihrer offe nlassenden Schilderung gleichsam balancierend zwischen kontrolliertem Erken nen und intuitivem Erfassen.

Benjamin We dor

\n

In seinen Arbeiten befasst sich Benjamin Dewor mit der Figur de s Menschen und der Suche nach einem Menschenbild ansich. Dabei gilt es ein Spannungsfeld zwischen narrativen Versatzstü\;cken\, die in der allt&au ml\;glichen Wirklichkeit verhaftet sind und der Farbe als erfahrbares Mater ial aufzubauen und darin den Menschen ohne Verortung\, in seiner Auf-sich-s elbst-Zurü\;ckgeworfenheiterscheinen zu lassen.

Er untersucht die darin enthaltene Energie und versucht sie mit schnellen\, raschen Pinselstrichen auf der Leinwand festzuhalten. Dabei ist fü\;r ihn die Bewegung von besonderer Wichtigkeit und der Rhy thmus\, mit dem Eindrü\;cke entstehen. Die Geschwindigkeit\, mit der er arbeitet\, ist das Mittel zum Zweck\, Momente schnell aufzufassen und wied erzugeben.

Pictures\, Before and After \;is one of a serie s of events honoring the work of art historian\, theorist\, curator and act ivist Douglas Crimp who turns 70 this month. Departing from Crimp's Memoirs which will be published as \;Before Pictures \;in 2015\, these events consider artistic\, philosophical\, queer and subcultural prac tices from the 1960s to the present. Whether as activist\, editor\, author\ , or participant\, Crimp has played a key role in the construction\, repres entation and interpretation of this history. The organizers\, Diedrich Died erichsen\, Juliane Rebentisch and Marc Siegel\, together with Daniel Buchho lz and Christopher Mü\;ller of Galerie Buchholz\, the Arsenal Institut for Film und Video Art\, and \;Tanz im August \;are all fa ns\, friends\, colleagues or students who have crossed paths with Crimp num erous times over the years.

Douglas Crimp\, who arrived in New Y ork at the end of the 1960s and worked initially at the Guggenheim Museum a nd as an assistant to legendary fashion designer Charles James\, is undoubt edly one of the influential American intellectuals of our day. Alongside hi s occassional but significant curatorial projects\, and his work as critic (Art News\, Art Forum) and editor (October)\, Crimp has w ritten some of the central texts on museological questions and theories of postmodernism (e.g. \;On the Museum's Ruins\, 1993). He was on e of the most critical and persistent voices during the AIDS crisis and arg uably the one whose theoretical insights most shaped the development of act ivist and artistic practices\, even beyond the confines of queer and AIDS p olitics (e.g. \;AIDS Demo Graphics\, 1990\; \;Melancho lia and Moralism: Essays on AIDS and Queer Politics\, 2004). Moreover\ , Crimp's writing on AIDS cultural practices directly influenced the develo pment of the scholarly field of queer studies (AIDS: Cultural Analysis\ , Cultural Activism\, 1988\; \;How Do I Look? Queer Film and V ideo\, 1991). More recently\, he has continued to attract internationa l attention though his lectures and essays on contemporary dance and on the artistic practices that emerged in the New York Underground scene of the 1 960s\, mainly the work of Jack Smith\, Ronald Tavel and Andy Warhol (e.g. ' Our Kind of Movie': The Films of Andy Warhol\, 2012)

Th roughout his career\, Crimp continuously corroborated his critical and theo retical insights with curatorial work. The 1977 exhibition \;Pictur es \;(with\, among others\, Jack Goldstein\, Sherrie Levine\, Phil ip Smith)\, which he curated for Artist's Space in New York City\, is the m ost influential in this respect in that it instituted a paradigm shift in a rtistic production and theorization. The historical overview that Crimp dev eloped with curator Lynne Cooke in their co-curated exhibition \;Mi xed Use Manhattan \;(Reina Sofia\, Madrid\, 2010) dedicated itself to New York City in the 1970s\, the \; space of Lower Manhattan that w as transformed by a recession into a stage for the development of new artis tic practices.

Crimps Memoirs serve as the departure point for a n exhibition that Christopher Mü\;ller organized &ndash\;in close colla boration with Crimp himself&ndash\; and that unfolds Crimp's perspective on a half century of mutual exchange and tension between artistic and subcult ural practices. The exhibition\, \;Pictures\, Before and After \, opens on August 28 at Galerie Buchholz in Berlin and will run through Oc tober 31\, 2014. On August 24\, a few days before the opening\, Crimp will be a guest of the dance festival \;Tanz im August\, where he w ill hold a public discussion with Belgian dancer and choreographer Anna Ter esa De Keersmaeker. On the two days following the exhibition opening\, Augu st 29 &\; 30\, there will be an international symposium in Crimp's honor at the Arsenal Institute for Film and Video Art. Alongside Crimp\, who wil l deliver as a keynote the final chapter of his upcoming Memoirs\, there wi ll be lectures by Rosalyn Deutsche (New York)\, Jonathan Flatley (Detroit)\ , Rachel Haidu (New York)\, Dirck Linck (Berlin) and Juan A. Suá\;rez (Murcia)\, as well as the three event organizers. Following Crimp's keynot e\, there will be a screening of \;Lives of Performers \;( Yvonne Rainer\, USA 1972).

Storm Tharp \;was born 1970 in Salem\, Oregon\, USA. His works have already been displayed in a number of renowned institutions\, including the Saatchi Gallery\, London (2012)\, as part of the Whitney Biennial\, New York (2010)\, and at Nicole Klagsbrun\, New York (2010\, solo). He studied at Cornell University in Ithaka and participated in the Roberto Einaudi Architecture Program in Rome. \;

His works feature in the \;collections of the Whitney Museum \;in New York\, the \;Saatchi Gallery \;in London\, the \;Cleveland Museum of Art \;and the& nbsp\;Museum of Contemporary Art \;in San Diego. \ ;

This year he was awarded the Hallie Ford Fellowship from the F ord Family Foundation (2014). Storm Tharp currently lives and works in Port land\, Oregon\, USA.

Storm Tharp&rsquo\;s oil works represent ne w territory for the artist\, who up until now has worked primarily with ink \, gouache and pencil in the fluid and immediate aesthetic of fast sketches . His subjects are people and everyday items\; his genre is the portrait.
Talk (2014)\, for instance\, depicts a three-quarter portrait of a man that oscillates between figuration and abstraction. The subject&rsquo \;s grey eyes hold the observer in a penetrating and melancholic gaze\; his mouth is slightly open. As well as the figure&rsquo\;s gaze\, it is the hi gh contrast of styles that is so fascinating: the pale flesh of the cheeks is flat and delicate\, while the shadows of the white shirt are abstracted into geometric\, metallic patches of colour and the collar edges stand in s harp contrast to the grey monochrome background.

Storm Tharp&rsq uo\;s paintings show an intense interest in the question of perception &nda sh\; in the boundaries and potential of knowledge\, vision and painting. It is as if the artist is combining conscious vision and the fleeting percept ion of a blink in one image. Talk seems to be the portrait of an iconic fig ure recreated from memory\, a figure who is brought to life in the painting and who speaks to the observer. While some of the characters arise entirel y from the artist&rsquo\;s imagination\, his portraits also take inspiratio n from Rembrandt&rsquo\;s tronies\, popular culture\, and those close to hi m personally.

Just like the word TURN\, the works are full of su spense and characterised by permanent states of change and movement. In his pieces\, a face can explode entirely in gestural abstraction\, thus avoidi ng becoming a faithful portrayal. It is this courage to use eclectic gestur es that lends Storm Tharp&rsquo\;s figures their eerie presence. At the sam e time\, however\, each portrait possesses its own intimacy\, such as that which features in the works of É\;douard Vuillard and Milton Avery. T his is why his works move the observer: Storm Tharp&rsquo\;s grotesque and highly nuanced characters raise the everyday to the sublime\, and are thus monumental\, even beyond the format of history painting.

Michael Mü\;ller continues his extensive search for what art is or can be in the space of Galerie Thomas Schulte with the group exh ibition\, "Der Kubist Marcel Duchamp mag nicht malen". Once again\, this tw elfth part of the exhibition cycle revolves around the year 1913 in which R obert Musil's novel "The Man without Qualities" is set. This was the very y ear\, in which Duchamp created his first Readymade &ndash\; and\, thus\, se t a revolutionary milestone in art history\, while at the same time he rece ived much critical acclaim for his early Cubist paintings.

\n

 \;< /p>\n

For his show\, Michael Mü\;ller gathers contributions from cont emporary artists and culturally involved individuals\, who deal with this h istoric moment in art to create works specifically for the exhibition. Such diverse positions as the paintings of Michael Kunze or Friederike Feldmann hereby meet the conceptual interventions of Luis Camnitzer and Karin Sande r. Jochen Dehn's installation encounters the contribution of the collector- artist\, Wilhelm Schü\;rmann or the works of the curators Ellen Blumens tein and Lukas Tö\;pfer. Also participating: Athanasios Argianas\, Wolf gang Betke\, Angela de la Cruz\, Martin Dammann\, Ryan Gander\, Young Hay\, Bethan Huws\, Vlado Martek\, Ray K. Metzker\, David Schutter\, Nedko Solak ov\, and Raphael Zarka. \;
