Positions Berlin- thumbs down
Positions Berlin, the new art fair, held in the former Kaufhaus Jandorf as part of Berlin Art Week, didn't like it at all. I thought it was conservative, reserved, and quite frankly; boring. There was a lot of painting, and not of the interesting sort. The media did like it, I left within half an hour.
The only booth I really liked was the one from the Muthesius Hochschule (Kiel) in a coop with Umtrieb Gallery. They show drawings by Olrick Kohlhoff; one on the wall, two on the floor. I really liked this installation way of presenting his work. Turned out it was the gallery's doing, trying to show the variety in his drawings....
