During an early investigation into the language of film it was Christian Metz who observed that “film is difficult to explain because it is so easy to understand.” According to Metz, in film—in contrast to written text or the spoken word—the distance between sign and meaning was too narrow to withstand established codes of semiotic analysis. That distance, whatever its breadth, is central to themes explored in the exhibition Real Emotions: Thinking in Film, currently at K... [more]

An unanswered question a day keeps the doctor away or something on those terms. The apple, if you will, of art seems to be the never-ending meditations on its existence, value, and purpose in the form of the unanswered question: What is art? Curator René Block hits us up with this query once again with The Unanswered Question. İskele2, a cooperative exhibition between TANAS and n.b.k. in Berlin. The exhibition serves as a farewell gesture to TANAS, a non-commercial project space, as it clos... [more]

I saw a wonderful thing at the mall the other day. I was standing outside the supermarket when five models wearing replica Yves Saint Laurent Mondrian dresses walked by, each leading a pure bred dog in tow. I readily joined the parade of people accumulating behind these designer dog walkers, and followed them throughout the mall where they would occasionally pause, cue music, perform choreographed poses, then move on. Let’s take a step back. Hoog Catharijne, where I spied these models, is bot... [more]

Stroom in Den Haag is currently showing the last exhibition in a compelling series of projects called Foodprint, which addresses the way we deal with food in contemporary society, particularly in an urban environment. The final exhibition, Food Forward, asks what our relationship to food might be in the future, a valid question in a time with an increasing world population and storied food shortages on the horizon. At Stroom, four projects with this (semi-)scientific starting point zoom in on altern... [more]

I’ve been ruminating about the “attempt.” I’ve been rolling the word and a few of its meanings over in my mind these last days. (Some joke could be inserted here about “attempts to understand attempt,” I’ll let you come up with your own.) In all this cogitation, the word thankfully did not dissolve into meaninglessness (as some words do when you repeat them too many times—spoon… spoon… spoon… spoon… spoon?), instead it gained a new kind of significance for me. The impetus for this rumination on the word began du... [more]

Puppets, puppetry and the like are often relegated to being an obscure subgenre of the theater or sometimes of the art world but the exhibition, The Puppet Show, currently on view at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, points out the fact that puppets frequently infiltrate popular culture and bring along with them issues that loom large like agency, control, miniaturization and manipulation. These issues are explored by a wide range of internationally recognized artists who have created work that i... [more]
