Friedemann Heckel – Konversationen

Friedemann Heckel’s new publication is entitled “Konversationen” (Conversations). It consists of 75 drawings created since the start of 2020. The conversations take place both between the bodies, gazes, and gestures of the figures that Heckel invents and from page to page.

Until 29 January we will be showing Friedemann Heckel’s new book and a selection of the original drawings.
The gallery, located at Mulackstraße 14 in Berlin-Mitte, will be open every Saturday, 12–6 pm and by appointment.

Brian O'Doherty/Mary Josephson – A Mental Masquerade

„A Mental Masquerade – When Brian O’Doherty was a female art critic: Mary Josephson’s collected writings“ gathers work by art critic Mary Josephson, most of it written between 1971 and 1973.
Mary Josephson does not exist. She is one of the many alter egos of notorious artist and theorist Brian O’Doherty, looking to liberate himself from the intellectual constraints of malehood and the social constraints of the art world. Josephson was a brilliant observer, a witty and fearless writer. Her reviews shed a light on New York’s art scene in 1970s.

Edited by Thomas Fischer and Astrid Mania; published by Spector Books; designed by Saira Hussain and Julia Guther, Studio Workshop.

This publication was made possible with the support of the Schuermann Foundation.
