ARTMargins Open Forum “Where’s the Margins?”

Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, ARTMargins is launching an OPEN FORUM devoted to the question "WHERE’S THE MARGINS?". The forum is dedicated to the status of the periphery, the margins, and the eccentric in politics, art, and criticial discourse in Eastern Europe today.

Five-Year Anniversary: Museum of American Art, Berlin

Open since 2004, the Museum of American Art (MoAA) in Berlin’s Friedrichshain district (member AIM) joins New York’s Salon de Fleurus and the Kunsthistorisches Mausoleum in Belgrade as part of a movement that uses anonymous copies of canonical works of art to deconstruct the narratives governing postwar and modernist art in Western Europe and the US. MoAA exhibits large-scale copies of the masterpieces of American gestural abstraction—from Kline to Rothko–in a small ground-floor apartment in a Berlin Hinterhof, complete with kidney-shaped tables, stuffy rugs and 50’s-style knick-knack. The violent clash between the heroic rhetoric of the large abstract

Svetlana Boym

 Hand-Made Photographic Prints

The artist describes the production process:

“I pulled each picture manually out of the printer, its loud protestations notwithstanding. The rhythm of withdrawal is unrepeatable and so is each print. This procedure goes against both the printer’s instruction manual and the mass reproduction of the photographic images.” (Svetlana Boym)

Prices: $1200 each
