Christiane Rekade about Jan Christensen in latest Flash art (hope they don't institute proceedings against me) 
I can imagen Jan being happy about mentioned in Flash Art for the second time in two issues. Also, Jan have a tendensy to get a hard on from thinking about different layers of references, so I can understand that he will be happy about the name dropping of Franz Ackermann and Michel Majerus at the same time.



I will not publish an image of the text, I do not want Flash Art to sue me.

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.

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.
