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.

things I didn't know... part 3 
I might be no native english speaker (nor german for that sake), and I guess all that have read this blog notice this.
I do not however believe that there are language barriers that prevents me from understanding certain texts in english, and especially catalogue texts.
Now i understand that this might be a result of writers believing being unclear or obscure is being clever.
The word for this, that I learned while trying to find the equal to the word 'Obscure', is:
obfuscate. It is a nice word, it rolls nicely on the tongue and it is describing very accurate what I am experiencing while reading ... no name or texts mentioned...;
It is an effort to make it difficult to understand or see trough.

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.
