    Eine Kunstausstellung ohne Kunst Rheinische Post Online

    Es ist ein ungewöhnliches Projekt, dass das Museum Abteiberg zusammen mit der Künstlergruppe Lonelyfingers unter dem Titel „Konversationsstücke“ initiiert hat: eine Kunstausstellung ohne Kunst. Was diese Präsentation vermitteln will, ist das gedankliche Kraftfeld „davor“, bevor Kunst entsteht. Und sie möchte von einem schöpferischen Prozess erzählen, der einen ganz realen, stofflichen “Anfang” hat mit Fundstücken sowie…

  • Colorful Serendipity for a School’s Sculpture By Allan Kozinn for The New York Times

    By ALLAN KOZINN The New York Times Published: April 26, 2013   It may not be in quite the same league as finding the remains of Richard III under a parking lot in Leicester, or fragments of Chinese pottery dating back 20,000 years. But last week the discovery of a thousand or more shards of…

    A seemingly banal thing by Patrizia Dander Have you ever found yourself in someone else’s apartment, looking at a shelf full of fascinatingly strange objects?

    A seemingly banal thing by Patrizia Dander for TheFindsPaper#1

    Have you ever found yourself in someone else’s apartment, looking at a shelf full of fascinatingly strange objects? Or else, wondered about a seemingly banal thing, which through the owner’s account of its provenance unfolded its attraction?

  • In a zip-lock bag by Glen Rubsamen for TheFindsPaper#1

    If you compare the website with the store even from the same brand, say J.Crew for example, a fundamental and powerful difference is immediately apparent.

  • Water is a wet flame. Novalis by Nuno Faria for TheFindsPaper#1

    #1 Two swans are wandering on the mirroring water of the Alcazár Palace in Toledo. It’s quite simple, but their majestic and solemn movement drawing lines on the liquid surface reflects the history of the place and by extrapolation, the condition of love and the world’s narrative. Two swans side by side on a mirror…

  • Fingers – Part of the body, a gesture, a clip, a film and back again by Yilmaz Dziewior for TheFindsPaper#1

    One may assume a finger can never be lonely. Usually it belongs to a bunch of five quite close to each other. Each of these short little limbs has at least four companions, not to mention the five others on the hand. So compare this to the loneliness of the head or the heart! But…
