“Containing, restraining, reforming, hurting, compressing, binding, transforming a lumpy shape into a clean smooth line,” is how American artist Christina Ramberg (1946–1995) once described the drawings of corsets in her sketchbooks. Ramberg was one of the most intriguing painters to emerge within a generation of Chicago Imagists. She left a significant body of comic, formally elegant, erotically sinister paintings. 

Pablo Bronstein: Conservatism, or The Long Reign of Pseudo-Georgian Architecture anchors around the work of internationally renowned artist Pablo Bronstein, and his exploration of "ubiquitous" neo-Georgian developments as an exemplar of British vernacular.

On the occasion of this exhibition, Torfs made a two-sided poster in collaboration with graphic designer Jurgen Persijn.

It’s dark. In the glow of the spotlights that illuminate the artworks, a black and yellow synthetic surface shimmers. The walls, floor, and ceiling – everything is covered in a smooth, plastic film. It continues in the centre of the room, taking the shape of an enormous, blow-up worm. For the exhibition I AM A PROBLEM, director and set designer Ersan Mondtag has created a dark, yet tantalizing parallel universe. In his spectacular staging of the MMK 2’s exhibition spaces, Mondtag has set in motion a dialogue between works from the museum’s collection, making them the protagonists of the narrative.

PLASTIC FANTASTIC illustrates the magical journey of plastic, the substance sometimes described as the 20th century's miracle material, as it entered the public realm and brought such wide-ranging transformation to our everyday lives

Brossa Poetry is a survey of the work of the Catalan poet Joan Brossa—largely visual and performative, but above all the work of a poet—from three main angles: orality, the performative and anti-poetry. From his early books to his final visual experiments, the show includes theatre, cinema, music, action art and gestures in which he displayed great originality.

For her first institutional solo exhibition in London, Katharina Grosse presents a new work, This Drove my Mother up the Wall, painted in situ at the South London Gallery.
