Professor Oliver Botar’s book written to accompany the exhibition “Sensing the Future: Moholy-Nagy, Media and the Arts” is in press and will appear at the end of September with the Swiss publisher Lars Muller, in time for the opening of the second leg of the exhibition of the same title that was shown at Plug In ICA earlier this year. This time the show is being installed at the bauhaus-archiv — museum fur gestaltung in Berlin. In addition to works by the Modernist master Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, the work of thirteen Winnipeg artists will be presented in the show as part of its contemporary component that also includes pieces by art world luminaries such as Eduardo Kac, Olafur Eliasson and Floris Neususs. The Winnipeg artists to be shown are: U. of M. Architecture professors Eduardo Aquino, Lancelot Coar and Patrick Harrop; Faculty of Music professor Orjan Sandred; School of Art graduate Erika Lincoln; as well as Ken Gregory, Freya Olafson and the members of Development Ltd. (U. of M. Adjunct Professor Guy Maddin, Evan Johnson, Galen Johnson, Bob Kotyk and Ryan Simmons). The Berlin exhibition is designed by U. of M. Landscape Architecture grad Rodney Latourelle and his partner, the Danish-born Louise Witthoft. As far as is known, this is the largest single showing of work by contemporary Winnipeg artists to have been shown in Berlin.
