Last Call Art Cologne 2014 with a little GoSee media review and "Hello GoSee!" from Veronique Ansorge, Associate Director at Zwirner Gallery New York

Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper’s headline read: ‘the power of the Rhine. Surprise in the west: the 48th edition of Art Cologne sets its sights on post-war contemporary. The show also proves that it’s Germany’s only art fair of international importance.” Loyal local newspaper Kölner Stadtanzeiger claims “big love for Cologne”, in contrast Die Zeit already pragmatically declared in advance: “seven to nineteen (VAT)… is art being taxed too high?”

And, if you want our opinion, you can never go wrong with art made in Germany, and art in and from Cologne has long been acclaimed on an international scale – on both sides, that of the artist and gallerist. The direction may have changed every now and again, but that makes it all the more interesting. Now both parties, in terms of the fair and exhibiting galleries, have reshuffled and reorganised themselves. The 48th Art Cologne came across as a little more tidy and scandal free. It was fitting then that Ai Wei Wei welcomed visitors at the entrance with flowers.

221 galleries from 25 countries offered around 55,000 visitors an outstanding selection of classic contemporary, post-war and contemporary art, unique to Germany. “ART COLOGNE 2014 certainly raised the profile of the most important German art fair,’ claims Daniel ...

Dagmar Staudenmaier : CQUADRAT on the road on the racing tracks in Phoenix and Las Vegas for BMW M3 Sedan & M4 Coupé and Serviceplan Munich agency. Photography and online video on GoSee

CQUADRAT = Christopher Thomas & Christoph Adler visited racing tracks in Phoenix and Las Vegas to photograph the incredible efficiency of the worldwide brand new BMW M4 Coupé and the relaunch of the BMW M3 saloon. The cool dark colour scheme works really well, its attention to detail brings out the powerful smooth shapes of the car bodies. CQUADRAT opted to capture the car in a realistic look so as to bring to life the experience of the uncompromising relationship between man, machine and the open road.

This time CQUADRAT completed the series with a special extra: they worked in close collaboration with Jan Grothklags – Serviceplan Hamburg to race the M3 and M4 against each other on the Californian Ralley Raceway. Editing by MOVINGPIX - André Brüggemann and Felix Berndt (sound) really brought out the best in the video material. The result is a thrilling race, which presents the full power of the cars in just 40 ...

Weitsprung 2014 : the Art Buying teams of Hamburg’s agencies Kolle Rebbe, thjnk, Jung von Matt and Scholz & Friends and their WEITSPRUNG event. GoSee presents Katrin Grün & Alice Feja’s "Hello GoSee", the making-of film and a selection of snaps

“Dingy rainy weather outside – but happy glowing faces inside thanks to great portfolios and photographers” –the first comment we heard from the art buyers at the second WEITSPRUNG portfolio day. When round two hit on 4 April 2014 young photographers were once again treated to personal chats with art buyers from Hamburg’s biggest advertising agencies, providing them with honest feedback on their portfolios.

Photographers could apply online in advance on the WEITSPRUNG website with their portfolios. The Art Buying Jury viewed and put together a mix of various photographic approaches. This meant that artificial photographers had the same chance of getting some advertising feedback, as classic commercial and fashion photographers. Here on GoSee Katrin Grün (Art Buyer thjnk) and Alice Feja (Head of Art Buying Kolle Rebbe) explain in their very charming “Hello GoSee” just what the nice event is all about.

After the 25 minute viewings, the portfolios of all participating photographers were collected and put together so that in the evening the agencies’ art and creative directors had the opportunity of also viewing them and meeting the photographers for a drink or two. The three best portfolios were also voted on and announced. And here on GoSee we can announce that the winners are:

A taste of California in the ‘80s at Hasted Kraeutler, New York. May we present Jeff Barks "Goldenboy" in all its glossy glory on GoSee

From 24 April there will be one more reason to jet to New York this spring: it is the day that Hasted Kraeutler will open ‘Goldenboy’ the exhibition by photo artist Jeff Bark, which will be on show until 14 June. GoSee presents a sexy pre-dazzle preview and teaser video.

The gallery states: "The photographic tableaux in Jeff Bark’s newest body of work, Goldenboy, exist in an eerily ambiguous time of day, somewhere between the burning, first rays of dawn and the last glow of sunset. Suffused by a warm, languorous light that evokes the close heat of Southern California, and set amidst colors and textures that recall the 1980s, the series was inspired by aspects of Bark’s own autobiography. It was in a Southern California backyard in the ‘80s that he made his first photographs, and Goldenboy’s protagonist, is the same age as Bark was during those very years. But the similarities end there, as these works take viewers through a compelling though confounding journey, refusing at every turn to provide satisfactory answers as to what, exactly, is taking place in this young man’s life—and who he will become.

Although most of the photographs appear to take place outside, and have an authentically rich, saturated West Coast palette, every one of them was actually taken inside Jeff Bark’s New ...
