Hotel Leipzig 
Sabine Lang and Daniel Baumann are installing their hotel project Hotel Everland at the Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig these days, and it might just be, as the slogan says; the coolest hotel room on earth.
I would very much like to test out the romantic myth and place it in Lofoten (can you imagine; Hotel Everland in No Mans Land ?).



It is just that Carsten höller is working on a more site spesific project for Artistic Interruptions not far from my home town, I think I cannot.

Anyway, I wisited the hotel room today and I would very much like to test it, but I have to see if any magazine might be interested to reimburse me for it.

take a walk on the wild side...  
those crazy swedes/danes/french or what ever they are -- not only did they decide to learn Esperanto (who takes time to do such a thing?) and apply the idea of the language to other subjects and transform them into Esperanto Style (A Sit Com, A fast food restaurant etc.), no -- they also had to start a football team;

one more good thing 
Brian Sholis is mentioning that The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. are going to start a program called "Andy Warhol Arts Writing Initiative": where they are going to strengthen the role of the writer in todays contemporary art world.

This is good news.

great: I might just have found a reason to write about that video exhibition and the GDR section of it at the Museum der Bildende Künste in Leipzig after all.

I do not qualify

installation views Jan Christensen 

From Power:

Jan has left the walls to build installations!
His piece that he has done in different
versions "Painting Myself Into a Corner"
has now become a complete sculptural
installation.

Fifteen smaller wallpaintings are mounted as billboards. he billboards are in your way, making it impossible to see what's behind them. They also look like stage settings. Intricate. Delicate. Neat. Some of it even political(!). Quite interesting. And very nice to hear Jan talk about it all.
