Genossenschaften, Sharing Community, Co-Housing – das Kollektiv hat Konjunktur. Fragen zum Verhältnis von Gesellschaft und Gestaltung, von individueller und gemeinschaftlicher Kreation und Produktion wurden bereits Ende der 1920er Jahre intensiv am Bauhaus verhandelt: Besonders der zweite Bauhausdirektor Hannes Meyer richtete Lehre und Werkstätten, Planung und Architektur radikal am Kollektiv und seinen Bedürfnissen aus. Revolutionär war besonders Meyers Idee eines gemeinschaftlichen Gestaltungsprozesses. Diesem sogenannten Coop-Prinzip widmet sich nun erstmals eine Ausstellung im Bauhaus Dessau vom 21. Mai bis 4. Oktober 2015.

Visvaldas Morkevičius – Public Secrets @ Motto Berlin. 08.09.2015
Visvaldas Morkevičius’ photo book project Public Secrets can be seen as a visual anthropological essay, inquiring on the possibility of voyeurism on self-proclaimed objects of gaze. The book compiles individuals and their bodies that incidentally demand to be looked at, and documents environments and settings that provide the scenography for these staged disclosures.
City patterns, nightlife shots and semi-private spaces are taken into the coming back and forth query, varying in physical and intimate distances. This conceptual camera movement results in pictures of queer places and behaviours, somehow too familiar for a viewer to be identified as ‘secrets’. Precisely the forwardness is uncanny in this book, the voluntary elimination of private, secret and counter, or intelligibly devised disguises that no longer hide, but expose.
Visvaldas Morkevičius (b. 1990, lives and works in Vilnius) is a Lithuanian photographer and media artist whose work situates itself in between fashion, documentary and artistic fields. His minimalistic visual regard holds interest in subcultural scenes, bodily identities and urban lifestyles.
Free Shop Book documents the project Free Shop in Germany, Japan, Poland, Denmark and Norway. It contains interviews with customers and participating shop owners.
Free Shop takes place in an ordinary shop, anything purchased in the shop by any given customer, while Free Shop is performed, is free of charge. There are no signs or other means of information communicating that merchandises, goods, services, etc. in the shop are free of charge. A customer in the shop may not realize that merchandises, goods and/or services have been purchased for free until the counter clerk gives the customer the bill for the purchase, stating the amount of 0. Performed for the first time in 2003 in Bremen, Germany, Free Shop has since been held in Japan, Poland, Denmark and Norway.
The official catalogue of Shinro Ohtake’s exhibition held at Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art, Kagawa, 2013.
As the title suggests, “NEWNEW” consisted of only new, recent and never-exhibited works by the artist, deliberately placed throughout the museum to make the most of its unique locational environment and architectural structure.
The exhibited works included installations such as “MON CHERI: A Self-Portrait as a Scrapped Shed,” his contribution to Documenta 13, in addition to large-scale sculptures, collages, oil paintings, oversize drawings and small Gouache paintings on paper.
The catalogue consists of separate sheets, leaflets and a DVD, tied together with a paper faster that is also detachable. Sorted according to their techniques or where they were exhibited, the works are reproduced either in the books or on the sheets. The DVD contains a video documentation of the exhibition from a visitor’s perspective, beginning from a front view of the museum to the deep end of its exhibition rooms.
Larger than A3 in size, each of the eight sheets documents a different large-scale installation by the artist. With the front side covered by a full-bleed photo showing a whole picture of the work, they could be hung on a wall as a poster, while the back side shows details of the work and informs of other related works along with their captions. The three leaflets are formatted in different sizes; two feature image-based works (oil paintings / collages and drawings) and the other contains texts and reference data.
