"Every day we produce data: through searches on Google, likes on Facebook, or photo uploads to Instagram. This flood of information is dramatically changing the way we interact with each other and with the world. Data is an opportunity and a powerful tool that can be used to resolve problems and to raise questions. But it also has its limitations.   Experience data in a whole new light at ArtScience Museum's upcoming Big Bang Data exhibition. Through a series of thought-provoking data visualisation artworks by artists, designers, journalists and innovators, you'll gain new perspectives on the issues surrounding the rapid datafication of our world, and discover the ways in which our ever-expanding digital footprint is radically transforming our lives, our decisions, and the future of society itself"

i-D Magazine picks HORST ADEMEIT in its "don't-miss" exhibitions from the Gallery Weekend 2016

"Horst Ademeit - Living in the radiant cold, Delmes & Zander, Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße 37
„It's only a question of time, before I'll have you caught in the act", sagte Ademeit einst. 40 Jahre seines Lebens wollte er sie einfangen, die Kältestrahlen, die er tagtäglich um sich herum wahrnahm. Mithilfe von Polaroid-, Analog- und Digitalkameras und unzähligen, handschriftlichen Notizen, in denen er Geruch, Geräusch und persönliche Befindlichkeiten festhielt. Ademeit verstarb vor wenigen Jahren, seine umfangreiches Werk lebt weiter."

Evelyn Simons from SEE YOU THERE features Delmes & Zander's booth amongst the Top 5 at Independent Brussels


"The top 5 booths at Independent Brussels

Last week saw the very first edition of New York’s Independent art fair abroad, breathing some fresh air into Brussels’ art fair landscape with an edgy and laid-back approach. With a much more breezy set-up than the traditional “booth-after-booth, hallway-after-hallway” structure, the Independent experience felt more like visiting a curated biennale show than a capitalist shopping spree. The democratic attitude was also reflected in the fair’s non-existent entry price, and the combination of heavy hitters such as David Zwirner and Gladstone with up-and-coming spaces as for instance Dürst Britt & Mayhew, which opened in The Hague only last year. The overall openness even extended to after-fair hours when a party at Jan de Cock’s Brussels Art Institute was publicly communicated through Instagram and Facebook for everyone to come. Here are five outstanding shows that truly made Independent Brussels an unforgettable experience, as selected by Evelyn Simons.

1. Delmes & Zander – Cologne/Berlin

Delmes & Zander presented “OTHER/one – Portraits”, a sequence to “ONE/other – Self Portraits” exhibited at Independent New York earlier this year. The selection of works offered a remarkable and intimate view of subject-object relationships by exploring obsessive artists’ uncontrollable desires towards their muses. “Sleeping Beauties” by Paul Humphrey for instance pictured vulnerable women with their eyes shut, an attempt to take control over the objects of his desire."

"Conversation and community: Independent art fair lands in Brussels

As in New York, the Independent art fair's Brussels edition looked to complement the city's buzzing art scene, strategically choosing the week(end) of Art Brussels for the inaugural iteration of its trademark fair model on European soil.
The team chanced upon the 50,000 sq ft Vanderborght building, a former department store in the heart of the city. 'We had the extraordinary fortune of this amazing space, right in the centre, with a wonderful architecture that’s almost perfect for presenting art,' explains creative advisor Matthew Higgs about the six-floor structure, replete with a glass façade and glass-walled atrium that allowed natural light to emphasise the building’s transparencies.
On the ground floor, the progressive concept became immediately clear: New York powerhouse David Zwirner rubbed shoulders with the not-for-profit White Columns, who in turn neighboured with Delmes & Zander, a gallery based in Cologne and Berlin that focuses on outsider art. 'What’s important to us is that every kind of gallery is represented,' notes Higgs. 'We make sure there is no hierarchy – a wealthy gallery doesn’t take precedence over a smaller project. At a lot of fairs, the younger galleries are all together; the blue chip galleries are all together. We’re interested in trying to dissolve that.'
It made for a diverse viewing experience that, after getting a sense of the set-up, was conducive to discussions on transitions and juxtapositions. Carlier | Gebauer placed Laure Prouvost’s monochrome slogan paintings together with Tarik Kiswanson's fine sculptures, creating a tension between dark, heavy words and lightweight steel. Elsewhere, Kasper Bosmans’ wayward work in media ranging from silver-plated bronze to gouache and pencil in wood, showcased his unfettered ability to create at Marc Foxx Gallery. 
'You get really interesting dialogues between individual artworks, which you wouldn’t with a more conventionally structured fair,' Higgs concludes. 'There has been a great response. Hopefully it’s a dialogue that will continue.'"
