Public Institution
Spacecraft Icarus 13 & Save the Date: Christoph Schlingensief
  The international group exhibition Spacecraft Icarus 13: Narratives of Progress from Elsewhere, curated by Cosmin Costinas,, is on view for only two more weeks. The exhibition, with works by Neil Beloufa, Patty Chang and David Kelley, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Mikhail Kalatozov, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Federico Herrero, Yasuzo Masumura, Omar Meneses, Cristina Lucas, Mauro Restiffe, Glauber Rocha, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and Lin Yilin, includes a number of artistic positions by international artists from different generations, and reflects upon alternative visions for the future as well as models for political and cultural change. These positions have emerged in response to the new conditions of the post-Cold War era, and originate from cultural and political contexts outside of the simplified axis of the ideological rivalry between the so-called West and East.

BAK announces with excitement and anticipation the exhibition Christoph Schlingensief: Fear at the Core of Things, curated by Kathrin Rhomberg. The opening on 4 February 2012 at 16.00 hrs at BAK is followed by a screening of Schlingensief's film The African Twintowers (2009, 70 min.) at Filmtheater 't Hoogt at 19.00 hrs.
