Rosemarie Trockel (1952, Schwerte, Germany) is held to be one of the most important international artists of our times. Museion in Bolzano is hosting her Flagrant Delight exhibition, bringing together more than 80 of her works, including textile paintings, a kitchen hob, ceramics, sculptures and collages. The works address many issues, using many techniques, but always with a precise, poetic and explicitly feminine touch. As the title suggests, her works are often playful and mysterious: whether direct and political, or openly sensual, all are open to a multiple interpretations. The exhibition is curated by Dirk Snauwaert and a special presentation will be held by Muesion’s director Letizia Ragaglia (check this interview we had with her) and Rosemary Trockel.

A sculptor who began working during the postwar period in a classical figurative style, Alina Szapocznikow radically reconceptualized sculpture as an imprint not only of memory but also of her own body. Szapocznikow left behind a legacy of provocative objects that evoke Surrealism, Nouveau Réalisme, and Pop art. Her tinted polyester casts of body parts, often transformed into everyday objects like lamps or ashtrays; her poured polyurethane forms; and her elaborately constructed sculptures, which at times incorporated photographs, clothing, or car parts, all remain as wonderfully idiosyncratic and culturally resonant today as when they were first made. The exhibition is accompanied by a major publication, copublished by The Museum of Modern Art and Mercatorfonds, that reflects new scholarship on Szapocznikow, contextualizing this little known artist’s work for a wider audience.
6B presents the fourth installment of a serie of group exhibitions called Outre-Forêt. The Outre-Forêt is an area of northern Alsace off from the rest of the country by a thick barrier of trees. At a time when the woods were crossed on foot or on horseback, this frontier forest had the reputation of being dangerous or impassable. Outre Forêt then designates an area beyond the center, and its location is an unknown space. His condition requires a displacement, from here to there, a blind spot in an enlightened vision. Override means going forward while keeping aware of the overflow of the frame exceeded. A shift towards Saint Denis, would mean to see, presented in a series of exhibitions, the existence of a place, an associative project specifically artistic or political. Among featured artists are Claire Decet, Amira Fritz, Erwan Frotin, Stéphanie Nava and Marion Verboom. For full infos check the link below.
Hilde Weström (born on Oct. 31, 1912), is one of the few female architects who successfully participated in the reconstruction of Berlin after the war. One of the first women accepted into the Bund Deutscher Architekten in 1948, she founded her own firm in 1949. Her wide-ranging oeuvre, which she created until her retirement in 1981, shows Weström’s engagement with a present marked by transformation and the foundational principles of new construction. Her untiring commitment to a social, individually adaptable living has made her widely known. In 1957, her designs for model apartments were presented as pioneering at the exhibition “Die Stadt von Morgen”, part of “Internationale Bauaustellung” Berlin. Selected photographs, drawings, and models from the architect’s own papers alongside loans from the Verborgenes Museum and private collections will provide insights into the life and work of this unusual pioneer of architecture.
