Flipfactor. Colors Protests.

The new Colors is out, with this issue looking at the idea of protest. I admire Colors for the way it brings together many stories from across the globe related by theme and how, that while circumstances are very different, the connections are strong. This issue is on the money again, with a host of intriguing, sometimes disturbing tales. Another plus point for Colors is tactility. It plays cleverly with print and the idea the magazine as object in a world ruled by screens giving it great flipability.

Good Art #32. 100,000 $1 Bills On The Wall.

Hans Peter Feldmann is inspirational. I can't think of a single work by him that I don't adore, and any one of them could have a Good Art. But I have chosen this one, 100,000 $1 Bills On A Wall. There's a good overview of the work's history by Carol Vogel on The New York Times website and you can see more images on ever cool Colossal. The image above hints at the awe of the work, and yet it appears bland, the insipid green of the ubiquitous dollar note hung en masse providing a hue not dissimilar to an office illuminated solely by 1980s fluorescent lights. In some ways the work is about dreams, perhaps even the realisation of dreams you didn't know you had. Both serious and darkly funny, it raises many questions.

Art Martha. Karel's Keuze.

There's still time to see the excellent Karel's Keuze exhibition at De Hallen in Haarlem, if you're in the Netherlands of course. The show brings together highlights of the gallery's collection purchased during Karel Schampers thirteen year stint. I went not knowing what was on nor who Karel is. It's fair to say I was pleasantly surprised to see some of my favourite works on show by artists like Hans Peter Feldman, Gillian Wearing, Nan Goldin and Boris Mikhailov.
