Fuck Mugabe!!! Spunk Seipel | africa | 20.05.2013 14:32
FUCK MUGABE!!!
"In the best dictatorial tradition, Mugabe lives holed up in his luxurious urban palace in Harare. At night, the street leading past the giant property with the high wall and thick barbed wire is closed to traffic. During the day, people are allowed to drive down this important road and past the heavily guarded house. But woe to those who stop! Or take pictures! More than a few people have ended up dead as a result."

Wherever you are you are with brody&paetau A collaborative team of artists who, indiscriminately and bordering on the intolerable, caricature global arrogance and regional slime. They are especially known for their degrading actions aimed at the functioning of contemporary culture. Art critic Adam Budak: “This conceptual neo-dadaistic artistic duo is on the lookout for the worst aspects of…

TAKAKO KIMURA
Stickers! Sticky pictures! Little stickies! Several years ago, an entire industry sprang up to offer children—primarily girls, understandably—countless images placed on tiny, moderately small, and sometimes even notably larger stickers. In themselves, these stickers have no value whatever: kitsch-pictures, the same sort as the pictures that young collectors once scraped off of the papers stuck…
When the Taliban destroyed the Buddha-Statues… Spunk Seipel | protest | 01.01.2008
WHEN THE TALIBAN DESTROYED THE BUDDHA-STATUES…
When the Taliban announced the destruction of the Buddha statues of Bamiyan at the end of the year 2000 in Afghanistan, a wave of protest went around the world. In all Western countries, the cultural scene was bewildered and tried to stop the destruction with helpless appeals to the Taliban. One of the worrying aspects of this was how muted the protests of the cultural scene had been about the…
IS THERE REALLY A MARKET? Spunk Seipel | opinion | 01.03.2007
IS THERE REALLY A MARKET?
Who bought their works during the golden age of such artists now cannot find anyone interested in buying these works from them. Auctioneers show no interest at all; the former galleries no longer exist, have parted with the artists or refuse to buy “early works” of their artists back. So what’s left? Internet auctions? There is no room for really expensive art there, even if a piece of…
Of Meese and the Germans Spunk Seipel | review | 01.01.2007
OF MEESE AND THE GERMANS
Jonathan Meese is currently Germany’s most controversial artist. His exhibition Mama Johnny, held in the Deichtorhallen gallery in Hamburg, was the exhibition event of the year. An artist of just 36 years of age, he was given the chance to fill more than a hundred square meters of space. He sold piles of junk to the interested public, labelling them as part of a new, intellectual world system:…

TRENDS
The art scene is a strange, fickle thing. Almost every year a new trend is proclaimed as if wanting to outdo the tempo of the fashion world flux. The one admired is the one who first spots a new trend which has to be exploited as quickly as possible, and which we have to abandon before it becomes assimilated – in order not to become outdated. Those who yesterday were considered Becher’s proteges …
Franz Höfner and Harry Sachs: An art duo from Berlin Spunk Seipel | profile | 01.01.2006
FRANZ HÖFNER AND HARRY SACHS: AN ART DUO FROM BERLIN
A visitor to Metz’s faux-movement gallery last September and October must have been a bit surprised. The two German artists Franz Höfner and Harry Sachs constructed a new exhibition architecture in the gallery. You could walk through empty rooms, see wonderful, white, but bare walls. The classical exhibition pieces, pictures or sculptures were nowhere to be seen. OK, we are so used to many…
Björn Melhus Spunk Seipel | revolutionary DIY | 01.02.2005
BJÖRN MELHUS
War provides us with many images, duly generated by the media. In the last 15 years, however, one institution more than any other has put its stamp on our collective consciences with respect to images of war, namely, the Pentagon. And thus the US Defense Department took precautions in the Second Gulf War that the war itself could be summed up as little more than all those people who in fact…
VernisSage Poison Idea Spunk Seipel | rituals | 01.02.2005
VERNISSAGE POISON IDEA
The vernissage—the art opening—is simply part and parcel of the art business. It’s where individuals meet, maintain contacts and where the actual reason for the event itself—the christening of a new exhibition and the display of new works of art—is more often than not pushed to the background. For most people, sometimes yawning disinterestedly or tensely, it is a routine, but the hope of…
