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

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.

Momeuntum 06 
One of the longest living spin off*s from the so-called Nordic miracle, the biennial Momentum, Moss - Norway will this year be seen for the fourth time since 1998.

Back then it was Swede, present Direcor of Städelschule in Frankfurt, Daniel Birnbaum, Independent Dane Lars Bang Larsen and Norse gallerist Atle Gerhardsen that speculated in calling it "Momentum - top of the pop". Luckily they decided not to. But it was a biennial with almost every high-flying Scandinavian artist included (Elmgreen & Dragset, Olafur Eliasson, Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Vibeke Tandberg, A.K. Dolven etc.). The second one, in 2000, tried to follow the same recipe - but could not bring out the same amount of high-flying curators and artists. The third, in 2004, promised to take the Nordic term beyond the geographical boarders, but failed.

The two curators of this years biennial Annette Kierulf and Mark Sladen have chosen a not so Scandinavian list of artists:

Endre Aalrust & Thomas Kilpper (NO & DE)
