    OFFICE IMPART is a gallery, but one that hardly corresponds to the standard definition of a gallery. One of the many impacts of the digital age that is key to the presentation of art is a new understanding of space as a multidimensional structure that can be linked in all directions. (read more)

    ZERO WASTE exhibition at Museum der Bildenden Künste, Leipzig | EP34 Subtext & Discourse

    ZERO WASTE exhibition at Museum der Bildenden Künste, Leipzig | EP34 Subtext & Discourse

    The group exhibition Zero Waste showcases international positions in contemporary art that point out the urgency to save resources, consume less, and live more sustainably. In diverse installations, videos, sculptural works, and photographs the artists investigate the global consequences of plastic packaging, tire abrasion, toxic chemicals, and the overproduction of consumer goods. Zero Waste will be realised by the German Environment Agency in cooperation with the MdbK and curated by Hannah Beck-Mannagetta and Lena Fließbach.
    The exhibition catalogue, published by the Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig (MdbK) and the German Environment Agency, contains essays by Hannah Beck-Mannagetta and Lena Fließbach, Sven Bergmann and Yusif Idies, Martin Ittershagen and Fotini Mavromati such as Minimal Mimi. The catalogue (130 pages, colour pictures) is available now from the museums pay desk at the price of 12 € and online from Do You Read Me. 100% of the proceeds from the catalogue will go to the tree-planting project by artist Andreas Greiner, with the aim of offsetting the CO2 footprint in the exhibition. The first field maple is planted in January, 2020 in Gohlis. A sponsorship of the "Aktion Baumstarke Stadt" of the city of Leipzig costs 250 € per tree.
    Interviews for ZERO WASTE with Lena Fließbach & Hannah Beck-Mannagetta, Erik Sturm, Wolf von Kries, Jeanette Stoschek, and Bianca Kennedy & The Swan Collective recorded by Michael Dooney on 24. June 2020 at the Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig Germany.

    Ángel Luis González, founding director of PhotoIreland | EP33 Subtext & Discourse

    Ángel Luis González is the director of PhotoIreland, an independent organisation dedicated to stimulating a critical dialogue around Photography in Ireland and to internationally promoting the work of Irish-based artists. He won the David Manley Entrepreneur Award in 2011 for the PhotoIreland Festival project. In 2011, he launched ‘The Library Project’, a public resource library of photobooks, holding in excess of 3000 items from more than 300 publishers worldwide.
    The Library Project also gives name to Ireland’s Art Bookshop, a unique space in Dublin’s city centre, offering the photobook collection, an eclectic bookshop, and a productive gallery programme. He has been a portfolio reviewer at events such as Les Rencontres d’Arles, Format Derby, PhotoEspaña, and The Triennial of Photography Hamburg. He is responsible for books such as Martin Parr’s Best Books of the Decade, New Irish Works, and the ongoing TLP Editions. He contributed to Landskrona Foto 2016, focused on Photography in Ireland, and he is an invited lecturer at university programmes, such as the Fine Art Photography Master at IED Madrid.
    In 2019, he launched the public-facing project entitled ‘The Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland’ with its first instalment running 1-31 July as a 2000 m2 exhibition space, enquiring about Museums and Photography. The project will run every year during July as part of PhotoIreland Festival, until it becomes a fully fledged museum space. More recently, he developed OVER Journal, a new critical journal of Photography and Visual Culture for the 21st century, which was launched during PhotoIreland Festival 2020.
    Interview with Ángel Luis González recorded by Michael Dooney on 31. July 2020 with Squadcast.fm between Berlin, Germany and Dublin, Ireland.
