Entering Fire and Forget. On Violence, the viewer passes through two of the four rotating gates in Daniil Galkin’s installation Tourniquet. Beyond this eerie passage, a provocative text speculates on the impact of technology on modern warfare. Its thesis can be characterized as follows: since modern technology has largely emancipated warriors from a traditional active sense of duty—allowing them to literally fire and forget—does this change in confrontation halt the production and...

What first reads like an astral constellation is in fact a photograph whose blackness is broken only by the erratic swarm of dead insect bodies. Greg Stimac’s Santa Fe to Billings (2009) documents the choreography of the countless lives his windshield intersected on a drive between locales. The momentum of each smash is evident—guts smear and spray across the surface, recording innumerable tiny accidents. To create this piece, Stimac placed an 8 x 10 inch sheet of Plexiglass on the h...

As part of Haus der Kulturen der Welt’s Berlin Documentary Forum last month, writer and theorist Sylvère Lotringer presented a three-part lecture series called Framing Death, examining changing representations of death in contemporary culture. In the third presentation, certainly the most ambitious and expansive of the series, Lotringer screened Wim Wenders and Nicholas Ray’s 1980 film Lightning Over Water. The screening was interspersed with recordings of interviews Lotringer did himself with the... [more]

The collection is S.M.A.K.’s DNA and reflects the museum’s core identity as the pivot between recent art history and current trends. S.M.A.K.’s acquisition policy has developed organically over the years and has three distinct levels. Firstly, the museum strives to form an ensemble around the oeuvre of a select group of artists. Instead of representing an artist with just a single work, S.M.A.K. aims to collect an oeuvre in depth in order to present it in all its complexity. Secondly, there is a sub... [more]

Siblingtopics-112 A Dialogue in a Trecartian Tone   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Peter Campus, Joachim Koester, Sharon Lockhart, Ryan Trecartin at The Power Plant March 26th, 2010 - May 24th, 2010
Posted 5/4/10

      This dialogue, derived from texts by art critic Hal Foster and physicist Richard Feynman, among others, has been mediated by the internet personas of Hunter S. Thompson, Edgar Allan Poe and Raymond Chandler. In a post-humanistic stasis, and based on Ryan Trecartin's major exhibtion at the Power Plant in Toronto, the mode of dialogue gains a Trecartinian tone. Written and regurgitated with Mathew Timmons.   1: For the non- initiate public the situation is quite different (as opposed to trans... [more]
