An exhibition and dialogue between two publications, PARKETT and ART AGAINST ART.

Curated by Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen

The exhibition presents a number of editions in an architecture that echoes Franz West’s iconic “Parkett Bookcase”. The works are displayed in tandem with visual quotations from Taslima Ahmed and Manuel Gnam’s new Berlin-based journal Art Against Art.

The curators have selected works by Tomma Abts, Doug Aitken, Ed Atkins, Kerstin Brätsch, Valentin Carron, Peter Fischli/David Weiss, Cyprien Gaillard, Damien Hirst, Lee Kit, Jeff Koons, Albert Oehlen, Mai-Thu Perret, Sigmar Polke, Josh Smith, Monika Sosnowska, Hito Steyerl, Cosima von Bonin, John Waters, Franz West, Haegue Yang and others. Visitors will discover these works from Parkett’s three decades juxtaposed with fifteen visual quotations from the Berlin-based journal Art Against Art.
