La Moindre Des Choses, art space, Bruxelles, Brussels, Brüssel - street view of the exhibition by Johannes Mundinger
2014 brought a few solo exhbitions, some group shows and lots of murals – a review:


The photo above is from the exhibition "L´Observateur" at La Moindre Des Choses, in Brussels, a show all about observation. A hidden camera in the painted wall to the window captured the street - and thus the reactions of the visitors on the mural - and projected the image live on the back of the wall, inside the gallery. Once inside the space the visitors could observe what was going on outside - or observe the other guests: The works shown were painted on mirrors, to either look at art or just pretending to do so and look at others ‑ or just oneself.

Next step was Stuttgart, for a solo exhibition at Tisch Decke: 'Laterna Magica'

Thanks to smartphones and digital cameras, the internet is full of documentaries and photos from exhibitions and artworks. You can see a work hundred times before/if you ever face it in reality.
So an artwork doesn´t ‚end‘ on its physical edges but seems to start a documenting process – and its perception is filtered through the camera of the uploader, leading to the question: What is the original artwork – is it needed or is it just a step to the final expression? Could the reproduction be the exhibition?

From Suttgart it wasn´t far to Freiburg, for an group exhibition at E-Werk for which i have painted the triptych 'Raven' and installed the corresponding 'Brothers in Circles'.

Back in Berlin we, the Stupid Sidekicks, met for an exhibition at Neurotitan Gallery in Mitte. The first time we, Nartur Kunstgruppe, xXcrew and Steffen Mischke, appeared as Stupid Sidekicks was 2006 in Münster, since then we are exhibiting from time to time, more or less together in this group.

A huge advantage of having my studio at Urban Spree is there are a lot of walls around, that can be painted, if friends come for a visit.

This time the IrgaIrga guys from Vienna came to Berlin – and for sure Nils Leimkühler and i had to meet them to paint a wall together.
