Exhibition at Gert Robijns' RESETHOME:
Gert Robijns René Daniels: Works from 2006 to 201725.05.2018
The exhibition René Daniels: Works from 2006 to 2017 at Reset features a comprehensive selection of paintings on canvas which René Daniëls has created since 2006. Very few of these paintings have ever been exhibited before. Twenty years after suffering a haemorrhagic stroke in 1987 Daniëls started to paint again. The exhibition at Reset reveals these canvases to be an idiosyncratic body of work that has the potential to modify the perception and evaluation of Daniëls’s oeuvre as a whole.

Rirkrit Tiravanija at Creative Time: Pledges of Allegiance:
Rirkrit Tiravanija Untitled 2017 (fear eats the soul) (white flag)25.05.2018
Rirkrit Tiravanija at Creative Time: Pledges of Allegiance
The message of Rirkrit Tiravanija’s flag is a reference to German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s film Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (the English translation of ‘Angst essen Seele auf’). The film first appeared in Tiravanija’s Untitled 1994 (Fear Eats the Soul), a bar he constructed at Esther Schipper’s storefront gallery in Cologne that only served beer and cola. Fassbinder’s two lead characters, a German cleaner and a Moroccan mechanic, meet in the film’s opening scene over the aforesaid drinks, and commence an unlikely relationship that brings out their own deepest fears as much as the xenophobia and racism of their surroundings.
