IZK TU Graz: SAMIA HENNI - COLONIAL IMPOSITIONS | Graz/Austria on Apr 8 | During the Algerian Revolution, or the Algerian War of Independence (1954–1962), the French colonial authorities launched a colossal socio-economic development plan in colonized Algeria, which included the construction of housing for one million people. Algerian women called “Muslim women” were taught the way to settle in and adapt their new domestic space to French requirements designed by the colonizer, as well as how to allocate the family budgets for household expenditures. Algerian women were expected not only to accept the modifications of the spatial configuration of their domestic spaces, but also to disremember their ways of living, which the French deemed to be inappropriate. To achieve its goals, the French authorities created special military and civil units and hired French women from France to “discipline” Algerian women. This talk explores the processes with which the French colonial regime imposed specific domestic norms and forms on Algerian women during an armed conflict.
Samia Henni is a visual and textual practitioner of the history of the built, destroyed and imagined environments produced by processes and mechanisms of colonization, forced displacement, nuclear weapons, resource extraction, and warfare. Her research has culminated in the award-winning book Architecture of Counterrevolution: The French Army in Northern Algeria (EN, gta Verlag, 2017; FR, Editions B42, 2019), the edited volumes War Zones (gta Verlag, 2018) and Deserts Are Not Empty (Columbia Books on Architecture and the City, 2022), as well as exhibitions such as Archives: Secret-Défense? (ifa-Gallery/ SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin, 2021), Housing Pharmacology (Manifesta 13, Marseille, 2020), Discreet Violence: Architecture and the French War in Algeria (2017–2019; Zurich, Rotterdam, Berlin, Johannesburg, Paris, Prague, Ithaca, Philadelphia). She teaches at Cornell University and is currently the Albert Hirschman Chair (2021–2022) at the Institute for Advanced Study (IMéRA) in Marseille.
Annette Frick: OVO MALTINE CASTLE IN THE AIR | Berlin on Mar 3 | Dear all, in consideration of the horrible change in all of our situations, I have considered whether art makes sense at all... but I think it is especially important now to meet people and exchange ideas, even more so now.
Annette Frick, Ovo Maltine Castle in the Air, 2001
Hand printed by the artist on silver gelatin baryta paper, 40 × 30 cm
The exhibition celebrates Berlin's queer legacies and traces the stories of the building's previous tenant, Deko Behrendt. Amid the renovation of the space, Petrit Halilaj and Alvaro Urbano took on the task of
preserving layers of wallpaper, repurposing it into unique hanging artworks. Given a second life, these works become the backdrop for the intimate portraits of personalities captured by Annette Frick. Documenting Berlin's various subcultures, her analog monochrome images reveal moments of carnivalesque joy and freedom in the lives of people existing outside the heteronormative orders of urban society. Floating above Frick's portraits of drag queens, performers, and friends are gargantuan floral sculptures by Halilaj and Urbano. With titles that correlate to significant dates from the couple's shared past, these flowers represent the desire to commemorate the individual histories
connected to a place as it continues to adapt, evolve and grow.

Walden Kunstausstellungen: I DON'T SEE A SYSTEM - MARCO GOLDENSTEIN | Berlin on Mar 2 | Invitation to the Goldenstein opening on Friday March 18 at 7 pm.
Marco Goldenstein has been working on serial drawing projects for years which can extended over a long period of time. Wall-filling graphic installations are created.
Most of the drawings shown were created over years while working in a call center, hence there is a connection to the classic telephone drawings, fleeting scribbles lost in thought that could appear on a notepad during a business call. But Goldenstein constructs like an architect or master builder, creating fleeting worlds with a ruler and a marker. Designs for a perfect construction in space as a imaginary spiritual refuge that has to be abandoned and reconstructed again and again. Variations of the experience of time, manifestations of time and created in a late-capitalist open-plan office or stations of self-localization removed from temporality!
Patterns, rituals, models, vanishing points, communication !?
There ist still space between the lines.
I don’t see a system...

MACT/CACT Museo e Centro d'Arte Contemporanea Ticino: PARAPLUIE | Ticino/Switzerlad on Feb 8: PARAPLUIE (Andrée Juliká Tavares / Gianluca Monnier) - Himmel + Hölle (Heaven + Hell) | 20 February – 8 May 2022 | Vernissage: Saturday 19 February 2022 at 5.30 p.m.
PARAPLUIE, the duo of Andrée Julikà Tavares and Gianluca Monnier (both of them born in 1971), is proposing HIMMEL + HÖLLE, whose title (Heaven + Hell) is a clear reference to a type of outdoor game played by children. The work is an installation on multiple planes and levels, where the artistslike to ponder the perception of times present and of memory: children’s playfulness and the global
interplay of political powers between impulses that are contextual before being conceptual.
The settings they devise cite the philosophy and sociology of how we live, since the representation and
the meaning of the piece tend increasingly to nullify the work of art as an object phenomenon, the
metaphor of an image, stripped bare of all social and political references. This, then, is the
environmental context in which visitors find themselves, construct to the full that total locus, where the dialogue between observer and artist, between passive and active in the act of observing and of offering ourselves for observation, blends at levels that are more social and existential than artistic.
Text by Mario Casanova, 2022, translated by Pete Kercher.
