ALLIANZ KUNST KOLLEG 

Art is precious — topics such as its protection and conservation therefore raise complex questions. Although these topics are covered in art magazines as well as online, those stories are rarely aimed directly at art collectors. This is why Allianz has created the Allianz Art College and won the Independent Collectors Internet platform as a partner for this initiative. With a high degree of in-depth content, it addresses topics that collectors should pay attention to, regardless of their size.

The platforms experts have now addressed and compiled selected topics in the 108-page reader “What collectors should watch out for”. Frauke Schlieckau was one of them.

 

PHILIPPE PARRENO: QUASI-OBJECTS AT GALERIE ESTHER SCHIPPER

Quasi-Objects is Philippe Parreno’s seventh solo exhibition with the gallery. Philippe Parreno has often placed his works within the philosophical framework of ‘quasi-objects’—objects whose existence is inseparable from the relationship to the context in which they are exhibited. Parreno presents a selection of objects that have appeared since 1992, that span his practice and now reappear within a new setting, their relationships with each other, and therefore their existence, markedly altered. The speculative concept of the ‘quasi-object’ is one that seeks to radically redefine the relationship between the subject and the object.
