the children of Sodom

darek kondefer - instalation of contemporary art under the title the children of Sodom

I, formed of clay and dust, do not understand. Is this how it should be? Is this how your unlimited wisdom looks like? Ten could not be found, but there were children. Is the death of the innocent allowed? Is your name Moloch? I, the clay pot, must understand in order to believe.

Cursed be the second day! We were made frail – you decided so. Blinded by the pride of inhospitability, we became flooded by fire. This is your plan – the sword and the flame, pillars of ash and salt.

Do you know that after you, others will follow the path of destruction? And the next city will not be Zoara.

Panorama art collector

Harald Falckenberg died at the age of 80 His collection, which comprises more than 2,400 works, is one of the most important private collections of contemporary art. The focus was on German and American contemporary art. Harald Falckenberg has now died. Hamburg's Senator for Culture Brosda speaks of "a gap whose extent we can hardly imagine at the moment." Painting as a puzzle mirror by Francis Alÿs Painting as a puzzle mirror by Francis Alÿs

Culture Art in times of upheaval

Living chaos stabilizes itself What do we learn from modernity? Is the epochal break of 1913 repeating itself? The "Dawn of Man" exhibition explores these questions. One insight: the worse version of the future is not always the more likely. Bunnies without Playboy: Sarah Lucas with her Bunnies Bunnies without Playboy: Sarah Lucas with her Bunnies

Underrated German cities

Why Kassel is the most beautiful city, but you can't live there The city of my birth is notorious for being a car-friendly architectural sin with an ICE connection. The unique beauty of the city is overlooked. The feeling of mediocrity has become the identity of many Kassel residents. But there is a completely different reason why I no longer want to live there.

The immoderate gaze

How Pablo Picasso resisted death Pablo Picasso outshines the entire art of the 20th century. He lived, loved and painted more intensely than his contemporaries. But 50 years ago, even he was overtaken by death. Before that, however, the wild old man reared up one last time. Wild and cool: NIcole Eisenman Wild and cool: NIcole Eisenman

Opinion Nicole Eisenman

She paints what makes people tick: eye creatures taking a selfie, lonely people having a beer, depressives mud-wading: Nicole Eisenman paints pictures as if from the cockpit of our psychotic society - wild, nasty and simply cool. With each new painting, the New York artist proves what art can still achieve today.

Design Design as an investment

Contemporary objects that have what it takes to become collector's items They are made of papier-mâché or synthetic resin, are cast by hand or come from a 3D printer: limited design editions by young creatives are becoming increasingly popular.

Opinion Curators of the Documenta

The collective is the problem The Indonesian curators' collective Ruangrupa seems to have learned little from the debate about anti-Semitic content at the Documenta. The German side criticizes the lack of dialogue. A little more self-awareness would do the artists good. Culture

An extremely suitable secret language Lygia Pope's Brazilian abstractions, now on show in Düsseldorf, are tremendously sensual events of pure energy. They mock the trend of art that has to be loud to be noticed.

MoMa in New York

The reign of the old, white men is finally over The New York Museum of Modern Art was considered stolid, crusty and uninviting. After a renovation break, it is celebrating its reopening. What the new operators have done with it is revolutionary. Conservatives rely on their own stubbornness, says Dirk Schümer Conservatives rely on their own stubbornness, says Dirk Schümer

Freedom of expression

Conservatives refuse to accept fashionable morals and delight in the lies of ideological modernists. They are always concerned with a healthy distrust of those in power - something that is often difficult for the German subjects. On the road Restaurant Kronenhalle

Eurocentrism

The worst thing that can happen to art Museums are ashamed of the Western gaze with which art has long been collected. Now European art is being confronted with the supposed competition from Asia, Africa and South America - an aberration. 1 Painting, but who wielded the brush? 11 paintings, but who wielded the brush?
