Tulip Enterprises - Object of Desire
March 24 2011, 6 - 10 pm
Duration: March 24 - April 14 2011 Th + Fr 3 - 6 pm
In this exhibition the artists thematize objectification; art collecting; gender issues; the decorative in art (traditionally the realm of woman, sissies or hobbyists) and the domestic, along the way not only confusing genders, but antagonistic political systems as well.
The collages and porcelain “Ceramixed Plates” touch upon the objectification of males in media and pornography and the tension between orthodox and modern concepts of manhood. They invert the language of self-presentation: males striking the all to familiar poses of female availability.
In a second dialectic layer, the vintage imagery of US male erotica merges with the ornamentation and female fashion of the former "German Democratic Republic."
The artists seem to suggest that instead of highbrow intellectual signifiers instigating rarefied discourse, an art object often acts or ends up as something much more pedestrian: Zeitgeist symbol or life style object. They can’t escape objectification any more than the figures they depict.
sweet home private art space is a temporary art project in Gabriele-Maria Scheda's private living room.
Along with an opening with Portugese bar and tasty food, there will be periodical Art Salons with readings, performances, video screenings, artist talks, etc.
During exhibits sweet home private art space is open Th + Fr from 3-6 pm.

June 18, 12:00-22:00 Uhr: Vorbesichtigung/Preview
If you're in Berlin, check out the Lynchmob art show at HBC, a visual arts ode to director David Lynch.
Curated by the glamorous Berlin curators Emilie Trice & Christopher David (Kollektiv Berlin), the Lynchmob exhibition brings together a group of 30 international contemporary artists, each of whom were asked to create and contribute work stemming from, inspired by or in direct response to the oeuvre of David Lynch.
The ambitious group show takes place at the .HBC, a new large alternative art space right at Berlin Alexanderplatz, using the void left by the Hungarian culture institute. While many official international art institutes and embassies in Berlin have downsized, experimenting with more subcultural (and cheaper!) ways of presenting art, it's ironic to see the reverse taking place here. (And succeed!)
Lynchmob group show, Feb. 8 - 21, .HBC, Karl Liebknechtstrasse 9, Berlin-Mitte.
Artists: Douglas Gordon, Gary Rough, John Isaacs, David Nicholson, Oliver Pietsch, Zak Smith, Gustaf von Arbin, Hannes Bend, Stefan Saffer, Maxime Ballestros, Warren Neidich, Kenno Apatrid, Torsten Solin, Sandro Porcu, Tim Meehan, Sergio Roger, Justin Adian, Pete Wheeler, Tiphaine Shipman, Christoph Steffner, Michael Cooke, Angel Eyedealism, Daniel Tagno, Holger Jäger, Sean Cheetham, Edmund Piper, Yoon Lee, Clayton Cubitt, Ralf Gutsmann, Madeline Stillwell.

|New Exhibitions in New York, Detroit, Hollywood & Berlin||
Exhibitions & Presentations:
Hollywood: A few fine examples of our Ceramixed Plates are still available at Rick Castro's Antebellum Gallery in Beverly Hills.
|Ceramixed Plates Available at the New Museum Store||
Berlin/NY: Tulip Enterprises' "Ceramixed Plates" at the New Museum Store, New York.
On December 1, 2007, the new building for the New Museum of Contemporary Art opened in Downtown New York, coinciding with its 30th anniversary. The daring and highly recognizable structure, designed by Japanese architects Sejima & Nishizawa (SANAA), symbolizes and reaffirms the leading role the New Museum plays in its field.
The New Museum Store offers fine gifts, editions and books. 90% of the proceeds will go directly to furthering the New Museum's artistic and educational programs, which will be greatly enlarged in its new building.
Apart from presenting books and some very special editions by noted artists like Mike Kelley, Jack Pierson and Kiki Smith, the New Museum Store stays true to the museum's credo of presenting the under-represented: in its range of "artist-made products" it treads where few museum shops dare to tread, directly supporting emerging artists. Two of those, Dutch artists in Berlin, Hans Booy & Paulus Fugers are proud that two of their "Ceramixed Plates" are part of this offering. Their faux Delfts Blau porcelain plates, hand-painted and inscribed with "Include Me Out", thematize social (self) exclusion, sexuality and multiculturalism.
The New Museum was founded in 1977 by curator Marcia Tucker. Today it is the most important museum for contemporary art in New York, with an excellent world-wide reputation for curatorial daring and progressiveness. It stresses and exemplifies the internationality of art, and focusses on emerging artists and under-represented themes, media and developments.
Check out the ever growing list of rave reviews:
|Book: Mein Schwules Auge||
We're part of a new art book:
It will feature a few of our Ceramixed Plates, together with provocative, thoughtful or sexy work by artists like Jn. Ulrick Désert, René Schmalschlaeger, Slava Mogutin, Bas Meerman, Muskboy and many others.
As much devoted to visual art as to literature, the book will also feature stories, poetry and essays.
Expect artistic statements, either professional or almost embarrassingly private, on the topic of male relationships and body worship. The works critically explore how our image of the ideal is fabricated, and the diversity and conflicts of male relationships.
Nicely priced at 19,97 USD it can already be ordered.
|Ceramixed Plates Collection Update||
From the Ceramixed PDF Catalogue:
Dubbed "Ceramixed" they consist of vintage plates that have been over-painted to create collage art objects.
Originally conceived as part of installations for art spaces, including inscribed cupboards and murals, they now are made available to mulltiple-galleries and art shops as one-offs or small sets in optional hand made gift boxes. Each painted plate is unique.
One-off artifacts, hand-painted with state of the art non-lead pigments and re-burned at 800°C, they use design's accessibility while at the same time betraying a true artist's disdain for it.
The artists recycle G.D.R. porcelain plates in another attempt at broadening their audience, not by an enthusiastic allegiance to club culture this time, but by an ironic use of the current design fetishism. After all: while nobody dares or knows how to judge art anymore, except by price, everybody collects or allows themselves an opinion about design, much in the natural way many people collected and cared about art about a hundred years ago, casually grabbing an etching or two on the way home from work.
Artist’s plates are vulnerable yet - because of their collectability - quite durable artifacts at the same time. Popular painting themes used to be rehashed on plates and made affordable for a larger audience. Once the stuff of aristocracy, over the years the technique degenerated into a decidedly proletarian folk art form. Since the 1970’s however, classic German porcelain manufacturers like Villeroy & Boch have re-introduced artist’s plates as expensive collector’s items, mainly dealing in reproductions however. Non-derivative handpainted works on porcelain as in this case, where the painter’s canvas is replaced by the plate to create original pieces, are rarer, and, from a collector's point of view, more valuable.
The erotic imagery on the plates might at first be interpreted as being unusual in pottery. Historic pottery however offers many surprisingly "hardcore" images, as in pre-Columbian pottery and painted on classic Greek vases and Chinese plates for instance. The 2003 book and exhibition "Sex Pots" by Paul Mathieu recently gave a surprising overview of pottery using sexual themes.
As conceptual art objects, pottery and design aren't the only traditions being used here. Clash-of-style American 80's painting is another influence. It is said that inventions and new ideas in art slowly find their way into mainstream culture, so maybe in these particular plates post-modernism has finally reached folk art.
The plate's imagery is spiked with divers allusions, ranging from philosophy to prostitution, addiction and religious intolerance. They touch upon the objectification of males in media but also in warfare psychology (Abu Graib), and the clash between multicultural versus modern concepts of manhood.
The folk tradition of incorporating moralistic or inspirational texts on plates is taken up, using learned texts by Voltaire, Kant, but also No-Future mottos, and phrases from popular songs by the likes of Marc Almond, Robbie Williams and the Young Marble Giants.

|Flyer Soziotope: Subcultures Behind Flyer||
Review of the exhaustive new Berlin Flyer Soziotope book.
A giant coffee table work on the subcultures behind flyer. Features a transcript of a long talk between Club-artists Tulip Enterprises and Betty Stuermer, about the Berlin post-Wall arty-party scenes...
While offering a fine and less commercial collection than most other such books, its difference lies not so much in displaying the various styles in flyer design, but in the exploration of the ethics, folklore and general use of them, in short: their sociology…
It describes the use of flyers by different, subcultural scenes: The varying graphic and language codes (and clichés!) of the flyers made by the club scene, underground artists, political activists or radio amateurs are entertainingly compared in essays by knowledgeable scientists and journalists, often members of one of those scenes themselves. Additionally, twenty authors, designers, collectors, organizers and musicians have been interviewed for the book, the whole spanning such themes as the history of the leaflet, leftism and sexism on flyer, or “flyer for art”, as one chapter is called.
Made by “borderground” authority Mike Riemel, a well known Berlin curator, organizer and art activist, it is based on 15 years of flyer collecting that culminated in the world’s largest collections of electronica, subculture, and underground-art flyers. It consists of around 100.000 flyer from twenty countries. Many exhibitions have been staged with the collection since 1997, and now much of it is starting to be published (and collected) online as well at Flyer Soziotope Online Archives.
