Nothing to see / Nothing to hear / Hiding Art
In accordance with the Easter tradition, we present an interactive festival between art and music. The festival is more about hiding than showing art. We present a room full with art and music, where you don`t see anything at first sightb by stepping into the gallery. Numerous artists placed their works in our space. There is also the possibility to bring works spontaneously during the exhibition night.

Vis-à-vis 3 SONNET(S) & OTHER SONNET(S)
Ulises Carrión SONNET(S) 1972
Michalis Pichler OTHER SONNET(S) 2009 - (ongoing)
This vis-à-vis would be the occasion to bring face to face the artist's publication "SONNET(S)" by Ulises Carrión, 1972 and "OTHER SONNETS" by Michalis Pichler, here in particular "THIRTYSIX LITHOGRAPHED SONNETS", 2009.
In 1972, Ulises Carrión produced his first artist's book "SONNET(S)" which consists of a 44 variations of a sonnet by Dante Gabriel Rosetti titled "Heart"s Compass".Using the langage like a material, Carrión writes Rossetti's poem over and over again on a typewriter, in slightly different versions.
Michalis Pichler, a Berlin-based experimental writer, artist and publisher, in a similar approach, created 44 new variations produced and published a book titled "SOME MORE SONNET(S)" - and on the last page of this book announced a multitude of OTHER SONNET(S), mostly imaginary .

(LUBOK:) ARTIST BOOKLET MICHALIS PICHLER - BOYS! MÄNNER!
We proudly present our first new release of the year:
The Berlin based artist and self publisher Michalis Pichler works conceptually, often in series and with vernacular material.
He uses various media like text, publication, photography and collages but also sculpture and interventions in public space.
He calls his works «appropriations». This refers to the Appropriation Art, that arose in the 80s in New York.
Their protagonists deliberately create copies of art works, thus as an independent artistic practice to question the established idea of artistic originality.
The publication shows 24 full-page reproductions of advertisement pages of magazines. Their profane familiarity is interrupted by cut-outs and collages.
Boys! Männer! with 24 full-page figures in a four-colour offset print, paperback, 24 pages, 21,6x14,6 cm, edition of 500, 12,- EUR

This is a moment in time when poets and many artists share the same primary material: language. Conceptual art, vispo, text art, outsider art, conceptual poetry, flarf, concrete poetry, live art, L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, sound scores… THE DARK WOULD is a compelling document of now, alchemising text into art into text.
THE DARK WOULD gathers work by over 100 contributors including some of the most noted artists and poets alive today.
Gagosian Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of Ed Ruscha’s legendary artist books together with books and works of art by more than 100 contemporary artists that respond directly and diversely to Ruscha’s original project. Organized by Bob Monk, “Ed Ruscha Books & Co.” has been drawn from private collections, including Ruscha’s own. Most of the books are installed so that viewers can interact with them and browse their pages.
