The Showroom presents the first London solo exhibition of London-based German artist Grace Schwindt. Only a Free Individual Can Create a Free Society is a newly commissioned film installation and Schwindt's most ambitious production to date. Inspired by the artist's experiences and encounters growing up in a leftist environment in 1980s and '90s Germany, the film examines the notion of freedom: how it was, and is, understood; and who, if anyone, can really access it.

In 1937, my father volunteered to fight in the International Brigades in defence of the Spanish Republic. A would-be fascist coup had been temporarily halted by a worker's uprising, spearheaded by anarchists and socialists, and in much of Spain a genuine social revolution ensued, leading to whole cities under directly democratic management, industries under worker control, and the radical empowerment of women. Spanish revolutionaries hoped to create a vision of a free society that the entire world might follow. Instead, world powers declared a policy of "non-intervention" and maintained a rigorous blockade on the republic, even after Hitler and Mussolini, ostensible signatories, began pouring in troops and weapons to reinforce the fascist side.

Salt water and the spray of waves. Cannon and brandy. Scenes of life at sea abound in Danish art. The sea is an element of dreams, sending proud men to their deaths while making others instantly rich. Here Danes have won victories, created marvellous paintings and established connections to the rest of the world. Brandts now presents the story of the sea in Danish art, from the majestic seascapes of the 1800s to global life at sea today. Heaving masses of water come crashing down on the deck, threatening to wash crew, cannon and barrels of spirits overboard.

Creating installations of sculptural objects, Thea Djordjadze situates traditional mediums such as plaster, clay, and wood with everyday materials like steel, foam, and linoleum. Linking the mass-produced and the handcrafted, she assembles steel and wood constructions that draw on modernist interior architecture and design together with handmade clay and plaster shapes. Djordjadze arranges her work on the floor, leaning against walls, with larger works enclosing smaller ones, such that the work and the space in which it is installed are mutually informed.  Djordjadze's work often gestures towards museum display furniture, such as pedestals and vitrines.

The floating syntheses of space-time in Farah Atassi's works describe autonomous worlds with a uniquely fascinating power. Initially influenced by the aesthetics of ruins, the artist began painting a series of deserted interiors from photos of Russian community housing and abandoned, derelict sites. Her work is conceptual, and remarkable in the way it restructures space: large volumes are often approached at an angle and oscillate between hyper-construction and dripping paint, scale is disconcertingly distorted, and the relationship between form and presence is rethought through a beautifully considered meditation on furniture.

Animal que no existeix inhabits an immaterial, abstract and unstable space. Animal que no existeix wanders through Daniel Steegmann Mangrané's exhibition, developing in it, as a process of exchange and operations of transformation. Animal que no existeix is a perceptible space with no object. Animal que no existeix is made up of relations between subjects (entities) and exchanges of perspectives which engage the viewer in visualizing the potential for transformation of the phenomena perceived.

Lending Enchantment to Vulgar Materials is British artist Mark Leckey’s largest exhibition to date. The title comes from a letter by Guillaume Apollinaire, in which he claims that what he and filmmaker Georges Méliès do is "lend enchantment to vulgar materials"; Leckey identifies a similar impulse at the heart of his practice. And that is precisely what the exhibition highlights by bringing together new and older pieces in each of the media the artist has worked in. Spread across two floors of WIELS as well as the auditorium, the exhibition features nearly all of the artist’s videos, including Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore, the iconic 1999 video of dance hall youth culture that first brought the artist to fame, and other videos that have been rarely shown, alongside key sculptural works from the last decade, providing a long overdue survey of Leckey’s remarkable oeuvre.

The Museo d'Arte Contemporanea Donnaregina-Madre, Naples is hosting the first solo exhibition in an Italian public institution dedicated to the work of Walid Raad (b. 1967, Chbanieh, Lebanon). Since the early 2000s Raad has emerged internationally as one of the most influential artists on the Middle Eastern art scene. Oscillating between the documentary and the fictional, Raad's exhibition explores intensely relevant and deeply urgent issues, such as the impact of war in a public and private context, the dynamics that govern the formation of individual and collective memory, the way both history and intellectual meanings are written, displayed and negotiated, the veracity of historical documents, the intimate nature of artistic experiences compared to the pervasive influence of politics and economics, and the role of museums today, with particular reference to the Arab context.

Her work explores the interplay between the invisible and the visible, the private and the public, the internal and the external. In her art, walls, partitions and even the skin as the outer limit of the human body appear both as material objects and metaphorical concepts.

Alessandra Ariatti and Chantal Joffe have focused their artistic research on portraiture, a figurative tradition which has been constantly part of Western art (but not solely) since the 15th century. Way before the modern era portraiture as an exploration of the inner self and other traits of an individual or personality, dates back to the Greek and Roman marble portraits; although adjusting itself to the evolution of styles and shapes, it has always been true to the historical need to bear witness to demands for social cohesion or dissociation. The work of many contemporary artists (such as Alice Neel, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Andy Warhol, Alex Katz, Chuck Close) is permeated by, and inseparable from, the practice and re-invention of portrait.

More than 50 years after American pop art made its debut in the early 1960s, many of the issues first raised by the pioneers of pop remain pressing for artists working today.
