#boschholdinghands with artist @signepierce from New York. We‘re right in her installation Big Sister‘s Lair at @mdbkleipzig.
@anika curated the international group show „Virtual Normality. Women Net Artists 2.0“ together with @sabrinasteinek from @keenonmag. Big Sister’s Lair is an interactive installation that is based on an alter ego: the fictional character Big Sister.
The identity of Big Sister is based on George Orwell’s novel 1984. What was science fiction in 1949 has long since become reality. We are less and less in control. Our data and online information are analyzed and sold to the highest bidder. Apps on our smartphones are listening in and record our every move. Hackers are able to gain access to our smartphone cameras. Are we ever alone? Who else is present when we are in the supposed privacy of our bedrooms?
The artists featured in the exhibition present a female perspective on sexuality, identity, and femininity in the digital age. Their materials are their own bodies, realities, and everyday lives; their stylistic devices are humor, irony, the grotesque, and hyperbole.
I always liked #Kraftwerk, but I was never a big fan of the band. Since I was at a concert in Düsseldorf in July last year, I've been listening to their old records up and down. The biography of ex-member Karl Bartos is extremely worth reading. He describes exactly how his musical development took place. A few years earlier Wolfgang Flür described the events from his point of view much more emotionally (but also a bit more banal). It is very interesting to read both books in parallel. (And of course I'm still in love with the interior design at my @wework office in Hamburg.) #kraftwerk#karlbartos#wolfgangflür#wework
Normally everything in Hamburg is built with bricks. I like this pastel-coloured ensemble. And what do you prefer: Brick or plastered walls? 🏠🏠🏠 | #welovehh#igershamburg
I discovered this demolished car yesterday on my New Year's walk. Fortunately, it's not my car. Drive carefully in 2018! 🚗💥
Happy Brew Year! ☕️✨ What a great coffee to start the new year. Many thanks to @manversusmachine for this Colombian geisha 'Luis Fernando Benavides'. An elegant cup with floral notes and the taste of tropical fruits. #boschcoffee
