Digitization had been dominating many aspects of our lives since the advent of the world wide web and the internet as a whole. The same technology is starting to unlock secured data such as the iCloud onlock. But still, the same technology opens the doors for new trends that still need to be explored.

This spring, from April 14th to September 26th, the Polish feminist art icon entitled “Future Mysterious World-Natalia LL” will be reviewed extensively.

He Yunchang: The first review
In the autumn, Chinese artist He Yunchang will provide insights into his sometimes shocking performances. However, it turns out that this is a work of art that is deeply analyzed and highly referenced-Ai Weiwei’s exhibition is He Yunchang’s first comprehensive retrospective in Germany country. The Beijing artist has never taken care of himself: he poured himself into concrete for 24 hours, burned his robe, stayed in the middle of Niagara Falls, or removed the arch. His body has always been an important part of his artistic achievements. It will be exhibited from September 28th to January 30th.
