    Simon Denny is included in the show Based in Berlin.

    Since the fall of the wall Berlin has developed into one of the world’s most important centers for the production of contemporary art. As a creative and cosmopolitan city, it draws many artists from Germany and abroad.From June 8th to July 24th, the exhibition will show – in a format exemplary for the city’s dynamic art production – the work of some 80 emerging artists who live and work in Berlin. The exhibition covers the full range of contemporary art practices from paintings and drawings to sculpture, photography, film and video, as well as installations and text based works.

    Many of the participating artists have developed new works especially for Based in Berlin. Several of Berlin’s well-known project spaces were also invited to use the venues within the exhibition to present selections of their own programme. The studio building in Monbijoupark in Berlin-Mitte is the central exhibition. Starting on June 8th, film screenings, concerts and artist talks will take place on site every evening. The events include evenings organised by Berlin art and city magazines as well as artist performances and free concerts.

    Manuel Ocampo and James Deutsher will be included in Dublin Contemporary 11.
    The title and theme of Dublin Contemporary 2011 is Terrible Beauty—Art, Crisis, Change & The Office of Non-Compliance. Taken from William Butler Yeats’ famous poem “Easter, 1916”, the exhibition’s title borrows from the Irish writer’s seminal response to turn-of-the-century political events to site art’s underused potential for commenting symbolically on the world’s societal, cultural and economic triumphs and ills. The second part of the exhibition’s title underscores Dublin Contemporary 2011’s emphasis on art that captures the spirit of the present time, while introducing the exhibition’s chief organizational engine: The Office of Non-Compliance. Headed up by Dublin Contemporary 2011 lead curators Jota Castro (artist/curator) and Christian Viveros-Fauné (critic/curator), The Office of Non-Compliance will function as a collaborative agency within Dublin Contemporary 2011, establishing creative solutions for real or symbolic problems that stretch the bounds of conventional art experience.
    Physically sited within the grounds of the larger exhibition, The Office of Non-Compliance will function as a promoter of ideas around a laundry list of non-conformist art proposals and, when inhabited by given artistic projects, as a work of art itself. The Office of Non-Compliance posits the obvious fact that not only has the world changed in the last few decades, the idea of change itself has changed utterly. An exhibition that looks to highlight less conventional, largely artist-led models of art discourse, production and presentation, Dublin Contemporary 2011 will find in The Office of Non-Compliance an active thresher for novel, underrepresented and even untested ideas around contemporary art and its myriad possibilities.
