Nika Radić, My Voice Will Go With You

‚My Voice Will Go With You‘ ist eine Sentenz des amerikanischen Psychiaters Milton Erickson, der Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts erstmals Hypnose regelmäßig in seiner therapeutischen Praxis angewendet hat. Die Ausstellung von Nika Radić im Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz spielt mit ericksonischen Elementen der Hypnose, um den Besuchern andere Möglichkeiten der Betrachtung der Umgebung anzubieten und die Parallelen zwischen Hypnose und Kunstwerk als Medium und Methode zu zeigen.

Rick Buckley, Estuary Youth/Black Bile 84

Alongside the exhibition entitled: Estuary Youth, the artist will present the book publication Black Bile 84, which documents Rick Buckley’s 2015 exhibition and offsite project, Black Bile 84, presented at the end of the iconic Southend Pier and the Focal Point Gallery in the winter of 2015, which ruminates on the strange melancholia immanent to Southend-on-Sea and its outlying areas of the Thames Estuary. The Greek word for melancholy comes from that for black bile, ‘melas kholé’ – bad choler.

Riccardo Previdi, What next?
Øystein Aasan, never ending memory

What Next?, though expressed as a question, in the practice and approach of Riccardo Previdi becomes an “epoché,“ a suspension of judgment about the future, starting with the complexity of the present. In 1968 Mario Merz made a series of works containing the words “Che fare?” (“What is to be done?”). Leaving political readings aside, this work is first and foremost a question that the artist addressed both to himself and to his artistic practice at a particular time of the twentieth century.
