May/June: The “German Issue”

Ich bin ein Berliner – is something more and more contemporary artists can claim these days-and it’s not just because of the affordable and plentiful studio space. It’s been over a decade since reunification, and social, political, and infrastructure changes have created unique opportunities for artists to build new contexts and communities, with Berlin emerging as a major center for contemporary art production. Both centrally located within Europe and positioned between East and West, Germany offers a logical geographical hub for artists to live and work while participating in an increasingly globalized art world. Germany will also host two of the most important contemporary art events of summer 2002, Documenta 11 in and Manifesta 4 in Frankfurt.

In this issue, Flash Art brings you “Focus Germany,” which includes profiles of over 50 artists living and working in Germany, interviews with painter Kai Althoff, and Henrik Olesen and Kirsten Pieroth; a fashion spread by Swetlana Heger, whose work further blurs the line between corporate branding and artistic signature; feature articles exploring themes such as nationhood and national identity (“Cultural Territories” by Barbara Steiner), and the decline of East German cities and the development of new urban models (“City of Open Spaces” by Kai Vöckler).

Also in this issue: reports from the Whitney Biennial in New York and Gwangju Biennale in South Korea, and the São Paulo Bieñal; Aperto Helsinki; New York Cut up by Massimiliano Gioni; Eungie Joo looks at “the new folk” movement in the San Francisco Bay Area; Johannes Kahrs in “Global Art;” Tino Sehgal in “Ouverture;” and reviews, including Cecily Brown, Huang Yong Ping, Tracy Nakayama, David Shrigley, Won Ju Lim, Stefanie Schneider, Maria Hahnenkamp, Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Marianne Heske, and Tracy Rose.
