Blue Times is a group exhibition featuring more than 30 international artists who present positions dealing with the meanings of the colour blue in different eras and contexts. Through investigating the various connotations of the colour blue, the exhibition sets forth transversal ways of approaching the world of art, of images and of representations.  In the West, the omnipresence of blue in the domain of public design and private comfort is rooted in its popularity: 80% of the people consider it their favourite colour. Hence, blue is both the perfect instrument to control minds and bodies and a tool to trace gender, class and political belongings.

Beginning in September, the artist Mariana Castillo Deball (b. 1975, Mexico City)—who was awarded the Preis der Nationalgalerie (National Gallery Prize) in 2013—shows a project especially developed for her solo exhibition in the historic hall at Hamburger Bahnhof. This large-scale installation unites diverse artistic reflections that intersect historical research, philosophy and art; all of which are decisive for Mariana Castillo Deball's work. The artist appropriates specific subject areas for her own works and transfers the emergent research process, which is reminiscent to methods of archaeology, ethnography and the history of science, into a contemporary artistic use of visual forms.

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 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.
