2014 // Support of Dan Finsel’s and Carter Mull’s exhibition


Carter Mull puts the visitors face to a dense installation combining paintings, luminous sculptures hanging from the ceiling, a video, a mural drawing 7 metres long and hundreds of pages laid on the floor. Strong couleurs, logos, typefaces and screen shots of online shops for hipsters make up the meticulous pictural matter of the artist, through which he questions the status and the production of consumer goods and art.

First personal exhibition in Europe for the American artist Dan Finsel (born in 1982, lives in Los Angeles), Becoming Her, for Him, for Her: Becoming Him, for Her, for She (Becoming Me, for Me, for Me.) lays the radical base for an intense visual and psychological universe that explores in a corrosive and emotional manner family mythologies and frenetic multiple personality troubles in today’s Los Angeles.

2013 // Support of the Markus Schinwald exhibition


The CAPC’s nave is plunged in darkness. A gigantic brass tubular structure straddles the space. Painted skies and retouched portraits hanging on wires are being as if launched into the void. The walls are covered with Brinjal. Tumblers play chess and children’s puppets bang the metal tips of their shoes on the floor. A spiral Eiffel stairway links the floor and the ceiling, 45 feet high. Large hangings hide the architecture, a double mirror projection of the film Orient spins in a loop and looks at itself from a huge triangular bench which cuts the nave in four. A false ceiling with holes in it lets through a purplish light, while a figure on a suspended diving board vibrates with the variations of light. Welcome inside Markus Schinwald’s mechanical theatre. A space made to measure for the CAPC’s nave, which gropes as much as it traps.

The Friends of the CAPC support this important exhibition.

2010 // Berlin

With Aurélie Voltz, independent curator


In a city 8 times the size of Paris with more than a million habitants more, the space is there, to live but also to create! That is why the artists love the German capital that has become in ten years a hub for contemporary art. The programme proposes four days rich in discoveries, from must-sees to the more unusual.

From the collection of Christian Boros to that of Erika Hauffmann, via the Sammlung Haubrok, discovery of 3 attitudes and manners of conceiving a collection, in a bunker, private appartments or a space with an East German feel. Without forgetting Friedrich Christian Flick’s gigantic collection presented the contemporary art museum Hamburger Bahnhof. The same museum will also welcome an important personal exhibition by Carsten Höller. Discovering an artist’s studio, seeing project spaces that are part of Berlin’s vitality and watching a performance in the Salon Populaire, new venue with a rich programme, everything is here to favour the new!

A big circuit around Berlin’s different districts will show the recent movement of important galleries towards the West with, of course, the visit of young galleries, that flourish every year. An evening of openings will allow you to see the nocturnal ambiance of the city. Art and the life that goes with it: a diner at the top of the Reichstag with an unforgettable panorama and a dinner at HBC, an old Hungarian cultural centre converted into a project space to be experienced at night, in a sixties concrete atmosphere with a view on Alexanderplatz. And of course, tasting kölsch, the famous beet from Cologne in the unmissable bar 3, the artists’ bar. The next day, finally discovering the secrets of German cooking and, for some souvenirs an exclusive shopping in Mitte, with some addresses for young Berlin-based designers, the best of Scandinavian design, the exceptional vintage clothing shops without forgetting the good bookshops where you may find the catalogue you have been looking for for so long…
