Since the early 1990s, the French artist Sylvie Blocher has built up a body of video work that takes the human as its material—one that is fragile and unpredictable but charged with extreme presence. She engages with a poetics of relation, emancipation, the questioning of identities, the writing of history, the permeability of the masculine/feminine border, and codes of representation in a world under control.

Fogo Island Arts is pleased to present a major new piece by Hannah Rickards. Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows (2014) is a two-screen projected video installation with eight channels of sound.

Memory is retrospective per se. It does not commence before the experience it recollects has concluded. As the past's presence in today's present it shapes our understanding of history. Yet over time, memory based on experience is transmuted into a past that eludes such experience.

Portikus is pleased to present Curtains, American artist Lucy Raven's first institutional solo exhibition in Europe. Raven's practice encompasses a wide variety of media, including animated films, sculptural installations, performative lectures, curatorial projects, art criticism, and interventions into live television. Connecting all of these disparate strands is the artist's continuing exploration into the effects of technology on the world. Raven is interested in the connections between labor and image production, in the ways images might convey industry and how they operate within larger workforces—often unbeknownst to the viewer.

Monir Sharoudy Farmanfarmaian: Infinite Possibility will be the first museum survey of geometric mirror works and drawings by the Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (b. 1924, Qazvin, Iran).  The exhibition focuses on Monir's sculptural and graphic work over a career of more than 40  years. While her artistic practice has also encompassed pictorial forms of painting and narrative composition, it is the artist´s distinctive approach to geometric abstraction that provides a compelling entry point to an oeuvre in which objective concepts of repetition and progression merge with the aesthetic traditions of Islamic architecture and decoration.

Images of the eruption of revolutions, the momentum of particular liberation struggles, the concatenation of social movements, and heroic or overlooked individual moments of resistance and refusal—and even acts of courage and love—have historically built an archive of militant images. Yet, as powerful as images of militancy remain—from militant cinema to movement posters to images grabbed in the heat of the moment—their impact within a contemporary media landscape saturated with images of social unrest is not guaranteed. In the political and media terrain of the present, what makes an image militant?

The exhibition Soleil politique invites the visitor to follow an itinerary that begins, immediately upon entering the Museion, at the very heart of the works on exhibit, before extending out into the city. The first curatorial decision consists of overturning the hierarchy that traditionally separates the reception area from the lofty content beyond, the former at the ground floor of the building, the latter above. This spatial undertaking seeks to expand the use of the museum's interior to include its architecture as an integral part of the exhibition experience. Employing space in this way contrasts with the rules upheld by the traditional art museum or places of worship that prepare access to their contents in successive stages.

Andreas Schulze is one of the most interesting German painters of his generation. He creates artificial worlds filled with apparently ordinary everyday objects in his distinctive spatial installations and large-format, vividly colored paintings. Tables, chairs, wing armchairs; potted plants, porcelain, colorful blankets; wooden beams, buttons, and peas—besides the amorphous and spiral-shaped objects, these are the protagonists in his deserted, unreal pictures.

The new flagship store PCFS, an exhibition of exquisite products and unusual services from the post-colonial world, opens in the freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL on 2 October. The Post Colonial Flagship Store (PCFS) exhibition project (concept: Sven Kalden and Georg Klein) showcases artworks camouflaged as consumer goods, and engages with a new, surreptitious form of colonialism. The Flagship Store is what the colonial store was a hundred years ago, offering a "cleaner" consumer world today, albeit one all too frequently based on the exploitation of low-wage countries. European and international artists reference the colonial background of their respective countries and its impact on contemporary life.

REDCAT gallery curator Ruth Estévez invited the Belgian architect Kersten Geers to develop the exhibition, which focuses on themes that are clearly evident in the architectural work he creates with his firm, OFFICE Kersten Geers and David Van Severen. The visual argument in this exhibition is that there is a certain architectonic idea that dwells on the celebration of Endlessness as mythicized in the American West. The metaphor is the base for an architecture that blurs the distinction between building and object, collapsing the different scales.
