Press Release

DOX Centre for Contemporary Art would like to announce the opening of the Modes of Democracy exhibition

Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 7 pm

The exhibition Modes of Democracy presents inspirational as well as cautionary accounts of democracy in operation at various levels – from city neighborhoods, towns and cities, small and large states, all the way up to the global scale. It also shows how local democratic practice is today being shaped by global trends and vice versa, providing insights into an emerging idea of transnational democracy. The exhibition comprises both single artworks and entire sets of works by artists from five continents.
The opening reception will include performances by Brazilian artist Thiago Gonçalves and the groups Činoherák Ústí and Farm in the Cave.

Pushing Reality – Berlin

Press Release

 

PUSHING REALITY

 

As part of the official programme of MdF Berlin  we are doing our pop-up exhibition number One.

October 18 – November 15, 2014
Opening October 17, 7-9 pm

Grundemark Nilsson Gallery
c/o Alexander Ochs Projects
Besselstrasse 14, 10969 Berlin
Opening hours: Tue-Sat 12-6 pm

The four elements are important on Iceland; it is part of the folklore tradition and historically related to the first migration. The history of Iceland is a long and adventurous saga. The settlement of Iceland begun in the second half of the 9th century when Norse settlers migrated across the North Atlantic. The shortage of arable land in Scandinavia may have been the reason. Unlike Britain and Ireland, Iceland was unsettled land and could be claimed easily. With that history in respect we will draw special attention to how Icelandic photobased artists are using and developing their concepts within the four elements – earth, air, fire and water. The exhibition showcase works by eleven Icelandic artists of different generations.
