During the last 30 years, Peter Kogler is a very prominent name on the international art scene. He has been recognized as one of the most prominent representatives of middle-generation Austrian artists. Kogler began his artistic journey by adopting the tradition of conceptual and media art, and by developing his explorations at the intersection of different disciplines and media—performance, video, film, painting, computer art, sculpture, and architecture.
Shows & Exhibitions
bau bau is Céline Condorelli’s first solo exhibition in Italy, comprising about 30 works made between 2008 and 2014, as well as a selection of the artist’s writings. Curated by Andrea Lissoni in the “Shed” space, the exhibition offers a selection of Condorelli’s most significant works, which reveal her ability to activate relationships between art and architecture, space and socio-historical contexts.
Tim Van Laere Gallery is presents Great Hits the first exhibition with Anton Henning at the gallery. The self-educated Anton Henning paints, photographs, films, sculpts, draws, makes music, designs and builds whole rooms. He virtually challenges the risk of provoking misunderstandings and polarising them without directly addressing the political side. In the figurative sense he is dismantling the entire history of art up to the present day, in order to completely reconstruct it. A kind of artistic synthesis.
The Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris is presenting Flux, the first French retrospective of the work of David Altmejd. The exhibition includes unshown and older pieces, together with his most recent and certainly most ambitious monumental sculpture, The Flux and The Puddle (2014).
The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston presents Double Life (till March 13, 2015), which features works by the internationally celebrated artists Jérôme Bel, Wu Tsang, and Haegue Yang. Double Life includes an immersive light and sculpture installation, a 16mm film loop, live dance presentations, and a newly-commissioned video work.

On the moment of change there is always a new threshold of imagination is a research-based experimental project, which intends to develop, introduce, and integrate a new curatorial perspective into the institutional framework, exhibition programming and organisational structure of Artspace, Aotearoa New Zealand. The project will include the exhibit of art works, staging of performances, and events that will operate as references for the abstraction, conception and perception of change.
For his exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz Tony Conrad develops further his ongoing concerns with power structures—here in particular those surrounding notions of confinement, and transparency—both in terms of social constructs and those imposed by the various media he employs. Among the works in this exhibition, Conrad will recreate a jail cell—complete with cot, toilet and sink—that will also serve as an object that a video will be both projected on to and through.
