”We are proud to have presented new oeuvres and outstanding exhibitions over the past 20 years. Magasin 3 has always worked closely with artists, generating new works – this is the core of our operation. As the title of this exhibition, To be continued… indicates, we are now focusing on the future.”
David Neuman, director
Magasin 3 has been open to the public, producing exhibitions for 20 years now. Over the past two decades, many artists have created works specifically for the space, which is unique on the Scandinavian art scene. These works, which have been added to the Magasin 3 collection, are now being exhibited together for the first time. The exhibition features new, exciting encounters such as Mona Hatoum’s pulsating, electric weave Undercurrent (2004) with Tony Ourslers blinking, talking cubes, Frequency Spectrum (2002), or Cosima von Bonin’s boat, Item (2001), which will be undressed and dressed in its hand-sewn costume, with Chris Burden’s The Mexican Bridge (1998-1999), constructed out of thousands of Meccano parts. “To be continued…” starts outdoors, with a new work by Matti Kallioinen whose architectural and video works are inspired by science fiction and fairytales.
This Fall, we will also have a programme packed with events featuring fantastic speakers, films and performances. The first event: “Previously at Magasin 3…” Daniel Birnbaum (head of the Städelschule Academy of Art in Frankfurt and associate curator at Magasin 3) in discussion with
participating artists and curators. Topics: reflections on processes, productions, collecting, etc.
In conjunction with "To be continued…" we will embark on the production of a catalogue highlighting the Magasin 3 collection. The book will be launched in September 2008.
