Writing for zeit.de: About Julia Benz and a boat.

Our gallery founder Jörg Heikhaus is an author for the Hamburg-blog of Germany's biggest weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT. He writes mostly about art, obviously. In german. 

His latest article just launched today:

Julia Benz: Vom Millerntor in die Elbe

Ihre farbenfrohen, riesigen Wandbilder waren absolute Hingucker bei der Millerntor Gallery, der Benefiz-Aktion von FC St. Pauli und Viva con Agua. Julia Benz malt aufwändig, über Tage hinweg lasiert sie Schicht für Schicht übereinander. Damit hoben sich ihre Malereien deutlich von der zumeist von der Urban Art geprägten Gestaltung des Millerntor Stadions ab. Mit der Lütte Deernbekam sie nun eine schwimmende Leinwand für ihre Kunst gestellt – eine Barkasse, die ab Mitte Juli über die Elbe fahren wird. (...)

Being among Hamburg's Top Ten galleries because ... 

... well. Let's just quote CultureTrip.com:

"The heliumcowboy might claim to be the most subversive art establishment operating in Hamburg today. Founder Jörg Heikhaus is not shy about his vision to define the future aesthetics of art itself, as he endeavours to send global shockwaves from his little quite sizeable space in St. Pauli Hamburg's Neustadt.

Having done away with conventional exhibition tactics, the gallery looks to cultivate the potential of a tiny group of blossoming creatives, and provides these individuals with support for projects both in and outside of the city. Entry is by appointment only, but the bold future vision which awaits the visitor within is more than worth the phone call."

And yes, despite the fact that we're not pursuing the traditional gallery model any longer, we have a busy fall schedule ahead with exciting shows and projects on and off location ... stay tuned.

Now more than ever.

Writing for zeit.de: About Rudolf Klöckner, urbanshit

Our gallery founder Jörg Heikhaus is an author for the Hamburg-blog of Germany's biggest weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT. He writes mostly about art, obviously. In german. 

His latest article just launched today:

Street Art: Der Archivar

Rudolf D. Klöckner ist Bewahrer und Anstifter zugleich: Seit 2007 schreibt er in seinem Blog urbanshit.de über “urbane Subkultur-Aktivitäten und -Strömungen”. Er dokumentiert die Spuren, die Graffiti- und Street Art-Künstler in der Stadt hinterlassen. Sichtbar für alle, aber für die wenigsten im Kontext verständlich – unabhängig, ob man nun dafür oder dagegen ist, dass es Menschen gibt, die den städtischen Raum ungefragt mitgestalten. (...)

His latest article just launched today:

P/ART: Hier müssen sich die Künstler selbst vermarkten

Bis vor zwei Jahren musste man schon weit reisen, um sich als Hamburger eine Kunstmesse anzusehen. Nach Köln, mindestens. Idealerweise nach Miami, da gibt’s wenigstens Sonnenscheingarantie im Dezember. Doch das hat sich geändert, denn inzwischen wurden in Hamburg gleich zwei Messen für Kunst eröffnet: Die Affordable Art Fair und die P/ART Producers Art Fair (...)

Writing for zeit.de: About Elmar Lause

Our gallery founder Jörg Heikhaus is an author for the Hamburg-blog of Germany's biggest weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT. He writes mostly about art, obviously. In german. 

His latest article just launched today:

Elmar Lause: Robocop im Eismeer

Er nimmt die Sache mit Humor. Und dann doch wieder ziemlich ernst: Wenn beiElmar Lause die 3 Direktiven des Robocop als Leinwand-Triptychon auf eine in knallgelb gemalte Hommage an Caspar David Friedrich‘s Das Eismeer trifft und mittendrin auch noch das Tittenmonster sein Unwesen treibt, dann ist das zwar auf eine absurde Art und Weise sehr unterhaltsame und teilweise auch komödiantische Kunst. Es ist aber auch eine Kunst, die nicht oberflächlich wirkt, sondern voll lebhafter Geschichten steckt und von großer Tiefe ist (...)
