LISTE was founded in 1996 as a new, self-confident generation of gallerists came of age at the end of the 1980s, gallerists who had little chance of securing a space at the world’s most important art fair, Art Basel. The first LISTE, dedicated exclusively to this new generation, presented thirty-six galleries from twelve countries and as a result of its success has continued growing ever since to include seventy-eight galleries today. Peter Bläuer, the Director of LISTE, took some tim... [more]

Basel, Apr. 2014: Daniel Gustav Cramer is a Berlin-based artist. He has exhibited internationally at the Kunsthalle Mulhouse, France, Kunsthaus Glarus, Switzerland, Kunsthalle Lissabon, and many other international venues. His work, which can take the form of installations, printed matter, photography, and objects, deals mainly with memory. Olga Stefan interviewed Daniel Gustav Cramer on the occasion of his recent exhibition at SALTS, Basel, 01-72. Olga Stefan: It seems that in your artisti... [more]

In the first of seven films in a series dealing with love between men and women (started in 2009 and proposed to end in 2019), a man sits down on a bus in Bucharest, Romania and telephones his wife or girlfriend. He becomes increasingly threatening and verbally violent, compulsively repeating the same questions and accusations over and over in a sort of trance-like loop. Troleibuzul 92 (Bus number 92) (2009) depicts a very private and intimate conversation that is played out in the public space,... [more]

“I know that Basel in June is the most exciting place to be if you are from the art scene. I am sure that everybody will be here, collectors, curators, artists and I am looking forward to starting the 'celebration' on Monday,” says gallerist Andreiana Mihail from her headquarters in Romania. As the Art Basel frenzy begins, we decided to focus our attention on the Romanian galleries participating in the main and satellite fairs. This year is somewhat special because there is a total of four galleries... [more]

              Walking into yet another darkened viewing room at the annual Swiss Art Awards, I thought “when will all this video end?” Although it’s likely heresy to propose that most art videos are boring, after having watched more than 15 in an exhibition featuring 40 or so works by as many artists, I’ve had enough. After much thunderingly disappointing boredom, I decided to give this one last video a chance…. and was surprisingly captivated by the beautiful cinematography of the col... [more]

Comprised of special installations by individual artists,  the Art Unlimited section of the influential fair Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland, always seemed an attempt by the picture gallerists to feel a little more museological. This year’s edition of Art Unlimited held few surprises. Doug Aitken, Bill Viola, Urs Fischer, Ugo Rondinone, Ryan Gander, Christian Marclay. In this crowded field of art stars and icons three installation stood apart, with their strong and stra... [more]

A large disco ball revolves in the middle of the room, projecting innumerable disparate small green squares, which elongate and distort in size as they move throughout the space. But on closer inspection, the broken puzzle of scattered light begins to come together:  Pieces of a woman dancing are scattered among the squares on the back wall of the gallery – fragments of imagery that need to be pieced together in our mind to be identified.  The title of Selina Trepp's Private Dance...

                  Erste mai demonstrations in Zurich this year were as "civilized" as Zurich is overall - not much action although lots of "Robocops" were overly prepared for the worst. Some anarchists took over Helvetiaplatz's schoolyard, and yelled slogans at irregular intervals, while juggling large amounts of beer, whose bottles they threw all over the school grounds. A full program of events, movies, and lectures took place during the weekend all celebrating important victories in th... [more]

Posted 5/11/09

It isn't everyday that you see interesting hyper-realistic painting in a contemporary art gallery, but Florian Buhler has managed to utilize the methods of the Old Masters while imbuing his work with contemporaneity, humor and satire. Buhler's exhibition features still-lifes and portraits, but in extremely unorthodox contexts that sometimes perturb and other times amuse. Take, for instance, "The Portrait of the Painter", a self-portrait from an unusual angle below Buhler's chest, forcing the artist to lo... [more]

Manders The Absence of Mark Manders   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Mark Manders at Kunsthaus Zürich March 20th, 2009 - June 14th, 2009
Posted 5/11/09

        Mark Manders' work, now on view at the Kunsthaus Zurich, is at once mysterious, off-putting, engrossing, and sometimes down-right eerie. But throughout, the installations/sculptures of Mark Manders are extremely poetic. His installations are composed of varying pieces that are used as Lego blocks, with which he constructs his "self", and by rearranging these components, he is able to build new and different selves, or identities. And as with all good poetry, his work is not to be read lite... [more]

        "Art is not eternal."- Tom Wolfe, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test "For A Limited Time Only" is an exhibit of ephemeral art curated by Olga Stefan. It showcases seven works that will all change substantially during the three-week run of the show. Shawn Stucky created an edible catalog. Jess Witte created birdseed doilies, which will get scattered or eaten by birds. Annie Heckman stacked glow-in-the-dark bones which could collapse like a house of cards, Marci Rubin's ice-filled c...
