Martin Karplus is a chemist, Professor emeritus at Harvard University, and Nobel laureate who has spent the past 50 years consumed by a passion for documenting humanity in thousands of photographs. Sourced from Europe, Asia, and the Americas, these photographs candidly capture societies at pivotal moments in their cultural and economic development in rich Kodachrome color. From September 25 through November 28, the Austrian Cultural Forum New York will present these works in his first ever New York retrospective, Martin Karplus: Photographs 1953–2009. In 1953, nearing the completion of his PhD at Cal Tech, the Austrian-born American Karplus received his uncle's Leica camera as a gift from his parents and headed to Oxford University on a fellowship.

Emerging in the 1980s, Julia Wachtel became known for her paintings employing cartoon characters appropriated from sources as everyday and relatable as greeting cards and magazines, deliberately commenting upon our quickly evolving visual culture. Often comprised of multiple panels, her paintings also include pop stars, figurines from so-called primitive cultures, and scenes from Hollywood films. In her work Wachtel consistently displays a consciousness of the dominance of images, their penetration into all areas of life, and the haziness of their interconnections and juxtapositions.

We understand "Utopia" as an always incomplete alternative, the invocation within the given world of something incompatible with, and hostile to, given conditions. It is a negation of the given and a recognition of "something missing," but also a necessarily imperfect assertion of that which is not—yet. The work follows utopian projections that serve the purposes of secession from and resistance to our particular present. The "negative" or "critical" version of the utopian "impulse" is not just a matter of satire, or listing what's wrong with the world as though listing it could change it.

The Power Plant presents three solo exhibitions featuring newly commissioned projects that are the result of the artist’s direct engagement with the physical site of the gallery.  Pedro Cabrita Reis: fourteen paintings, the preacher and a broken line Curated by Gaëtane Verna The Power Plant is pleased to present the first Canadian solo exhibition by Portuguese artist Pedro Cabrita Reis.

The Grazer Kunstverein's continuous investigation into notions of social abstraction is carried further in response to the new "Leitmotiv" of the steirischer herbst 2014, which questions the notion of "sharing." One's solidarity always has limits when it comes to one's own well-being. What one reveals dependents on the context and is often disguised within an accepted form. The Grazer Kunstverein explores these "accepted forms" through presenting conversations between various practitioners that each reveals a side that one is often unfamiliar with.

How does the technological acceleration and our daily contact with media shape the experience of identity and social interaction? The exhibition attempts to answer this question from the perspective of the generation of artists born in the 1980s and 1990s, who entered the artistic scene amid the dynamic expansion of the Internet and mass digital culture. The web today is an integral element of the everyday, which encourages increasingly bold design of one's own identity and its management. The irresistible need to express oneself, one's opinions, and the demand for "authenticity" of the message have had an irrevocable impact on our experience of ties and relations with another human being.

Multi-disciplinarity, contamination of languages, audience participation, international collaborations: eight new exhibitions open this autumn at MAXXI.  The museum proposal starts from the video installations of Angelica Mesiti and Malik Njemi in The Immigrant Songs (October 2–19) revealing the contribution of immigrants into our society using their musical and poetic voices, their claims of beauty and freedom.  This exhibit is a prelude to Open Museum Open City (October 24–November 30), the revolutionary project curated by Hou Hanru. It will empty the museum, fill it with "sound interventions" and transform it into a public forum.

The Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt is open again. A major architectural landmark in Hesse and one of Germany's largest museums is thus open to the public again. The building was closed for seven years—five of those years for a complete renovation of the building and its technical facilities; two years for the transfer of the inventory.  The museum was constructed from 1897 to 1902 according to the plans of the Berlin architect Alfred Messel (1853–1909) and opened in 1906. With its period rooms and galleries grouped around a large central hall, the open courtyards, suggestive sight lines and richly detailed finishings, the museum building was regarded at that time as one of the most beautiful and most modern in Europe.

It's been quite some time since we wandered through the flora and fauna of the old world as hunters and gatherers in search of something edible. But is that particular chapter in the history of mankind really over? Are the hunting instinct and the passion for collecting not still driving human action? How much of the "hunter-gatherer" still slumbers within us, ask contemporary artists like Christian Jankowski, who in his video-performance The Hunt bags his prey in the supermarket, bow and arrow in hand.

"I for sure at least could say that my whole project is dedicated to these daily experiences in the countries of the Americas, experiences which stand in such opposition to those in Europe all the years before. I wish I could say that my whole project is dedicated to the Americas, but I for sure don't know what I am talking about, so I better not. I wish my whole project could be dedicated to many of the cultures of the Native Americans too or even to the Holy Mother of Guadalupe, called Mother of the Americas.
