In her first institutional solo exhibition, “Rage Fluids,” the British artist Hannah Perry deals with the treatment of coming to terms with pain and loss, but also with euphoria and ecstasy against the background of the current forms of communication as well as the traditional view of gender roles. Perry belongs to a generation of young artists whose socialization into technological developments and digital media is reflected in their artistic practice. Her work arises from the fragments of her experiences of immediate events, recorded by her iPhone camera or in quickly typed texts. The artist uses these recordings as raw material to process them further, combined with her own thoughts and sentiments, within the area of tension between rage and desire, between one’s own needs and conventions that are considered outdated.

Monograph & Catalogue Raisonné, Verlag Walther König, Cologne
The Künstlerhaus, Hall for Art & Media, is pleased to draw your attention to the exhibition "Studienraum Jörg Schlick." After a retrospective on the extensive œuvre of Jörg Schlick in 2015, the study room is dedicated to his biographical life stages and the presentation of the catalogue raisonné created by the Künstlerhaus accompanying the exhibition, the artist's first comprehensive monograph will be published by Buchhandlung Walther König, Cologne. In his artistic work and far-reaching activities, Jörg Schlick (1951–2005, Graz) strongly encouraged his hometown to engage with contemporary art. Schlick dealt with both the social self-image as well as the political attitude and intellectual traditions in Graz. While the main focus of the retrospective was on examining the quality of works apart from Schlick's polarizing and posthumously mystified personality, the study room provides insight into the catalogue raisonné and thus, the opportunity to view the artist's complete œuvre. The detailed analysis of the artistic work gives hints to the seemingly inexhaustible creativity and impulses that were contained in Schlick—rich in contradictions and discontinuities, but then with recurring motifs and concepts.
