My whole life revolves around love it seems. I still remember vividly falling in love for the first time: I was 4 or 5 years old, in kindergarten and the object of my desire was Tim Nowitzki. He was always the cool one, dressing as a cowboy w/ a mustache during carnival while I could only come up w/ a grey mouse costume. Not kidding; at least my costume was very, very comfortable - I wore my grey sweatpants. That love remained unrequited and lingered around for 5 years.
Fast forward 15 years and I obtained my PhD by studying sexual infidelity and I still study all things sex and love regularly.
In the meantime I broke some hearts and my heart got broken, too.
Being single in my mid-thirties in this day and age now leaves me w/ seemingly endless opportunities to find a new mate. There is a gazillion online dating apps out there promising that my next ‚one’ might be just one swipe right away.
Naturally, I was curious about the exhibition currently on display @kunsthallebremen: What is love? From Amor to tinder. See comments for a brief excerpt from the catalogue. The exhibition is extended until 27.01.2019 and I can only highly recommend visiting! The permanent exhibition is worth seeing, too. And the museum shop, oh the museum shop: I left w/ 5 new books I did not intend to buy. They even have the one of legendary @instachaaz in stock.
Also: Bremen is such a lovely city! I always wanted to visit bc of Sven Regeners books and his hero, Herr Lehmann, was born and raised in Bremen.
Finally, the climbing gym is pretty decent, too.
One final word of shameless self-marketing: If you are as interested in love as I am and you are in Berlin on the 16th of November: Come listen to my talk about love at Kuttners schöne Nerdnacht at Frannz Club.
What an awesome opening show to my favourite #artsfestival in town #newvison 2018: #treeofcodes with inspirations from the eponymous book by #jonathansafranfoer . It was a visual and audio feast for modern dance and electronic music lovers. And what a troupe of dancers from #companyWayneMcgregor : sinewy yet agile limbs forming lines of beauty with their moves. A performance of sight and sound with music by #jamiexx and visual concept by #olafureliasson - a collaboration of the highest order!
This dreamy image was created by design legend Olafur Eliasson, who was ably assisted by some small chunks of ice – left to melt while sitting on a layer of watercolour pigments, the resulting puddle is now known as Glacial Landscape No.8. It's just one example of Eliasson's incredible breadth of work, which encompasses giant, weather-based installations, rivers dyed a multitude of colours, and rainbow architecture. Fortunately, it can all be enjoyed in a new book, "Olafur Eliasson: Experience", published on October 22. And if you want your own Olafur experience, he'll be talking about his work at London's South Bank Centre on October 26. #art#culture#books#southbankcentre#olafureliasson#phaidon#abstract
“And as you come to a new valley, as you come to a new landscape, you have a certain view. If you stand still, the landscape doesn't necessarily tell you how big it is. It doesn't really tell you what you're looking at. The moment you start to move the mountain starts to move.” #OlafurEliasson 📷: @viktorianorth #OspreyPacks

“Hayatımda asla ‘keşke’ye yer olmamalı. Hiçbir şeyi ertelememek lazım" diyen Özlem Avcıoğlu, sırf bunun için tutkusunun peşinden giderek 2015 yılında Viyana Belvedere Müzesi’ndeki Olafur Eliasson sergisini gezmiş.⠀
