Peres Projects presents My Heroine And Her Mate: early abstract works by Dorothy Iannone, exhibited together for the first time since 1989 in West Berlin. Created throughout the early 1960s, these earlier paintings indicate the commencement of Iannone’s exploration of vibrant colour structures and intimate visual narratives. Though rooted in Abstract Expressionism, the works also represent early instances of the American artist’s own style of figuration and textually grounded themes of erotica, mysticism and liberated female sexuality. These themes would become central to Iannone’s oevre as she began to play and express a freedom of spirit now intrinsic to her visual language, ultimately beginning the path towards her encapsulating theme of ecstatic love.

With his Megaplex Trilogy, artist and filmmaker Marco Brambilla presents Civilization (2008, 3:00 min.), Evolution (2010, 3:04 min.) and Creation (2013, 4:00 min.). The pictorial worlds presented in the New York and Berlin-based artist's elaborate works are inspired by a wide spectrum of pop culture, transferring centuries-old history into new contexts. The videos incorporate over 400 films from throughout international cinematic history in fluid, moving tableaux. For 2015’s Museums Night Basel, the powerful images of Brambilla’s video collages transform the Fondation Beyeler into a spectacular 3D cinema.

Between timeless functionality and weightless (childhood) memories: NEW TENDENCY has been invited to collaborate with Philipp Bree to design a swing for his brand PB 0110. Conceptual design, clear aesthetic and functional form unify the product and approach of the design partners. The sole architectural component of the collection, the swing is based on a game of association material production and combination. Pairing industrial semi-finished materials, the swing integrates polished stainless steel and polyamide climbing rope with leather from PB 0110.

The Berlin “Brachflächenatlas” was once a playground and inspiration to many architects and builders. Today, it has lost its meaning: nearly all holes in the city’s landscape have been filled; the spaces that once characterised the city have disappeared. For the first edition of Abriss-Atlas Berlin, ten Berlin journalists and authors explore the capital’s mixed architecture and offer a solution for a new Berlin. With a playfully critical approach, the authors offer up their favourite pieces of the city's architecture for demolition including such recognisable sites as the O2 Arena, Potsdamer Plats and the Siegessäule. With snappy commentary, Abriss-Atlas joins the ongoing discussion on what has become of Berlin, with the hopes of rediscovering and redefining the city's wastelands.
