»Women in Art History«: A book project makes a clean sweep
The work of visual artist Sibylle Zeh is multifaceted: her portfolio encompasses a wide spectrum of artistic expression, from paintings and drawings to book objects, photo series and collages to textile objects and installations. The Berlin resident usually concentrates in her work on the representation of the »absent« or the »repressed«.
Matthew Eguavoen is an emerging artist from Lagos, Nigeria. As a painter he portrays people with a strong personality and a fixed gaze. Depicted against a reduced background, the social context is kept deliberately hidden, making it a subject for discussion. Eguavoen challenges the observer to speculate about the living conditions, experiences and characters of the people depicted, and takes them into uncertain terrain. We talked to him about his artistic position, a detailed portrait of his art you can find here.
The new Liste Expedition is index and virtual exhibition space at the same time
Since a few weeks a new Liste research forum is available: Liste Expedition. The free platform serves as an artist index for the digital fairs Liste Showtime 2020 and 2021. In the coming years, it will be continuously expanded. At the same time, in conjunction with Spike Art Magazine, new essays on individual artworks will be published monthly and web exhibitions will change weekly.
Do you have a favorite color?
Luise von Rohden answers this question with a clear no, which is not really surprising, because her works are always reduced to a minimum. For her, the right balance between precision and irregularities is essential for a successful work, as she explains to us in conversation.

»Photography is my work - watercolors are my pearls.«
With city views of Berlin, Efraim Habermann became known to a broad public as a photographer in the 1960s. His works are characterized early on by a distinctive, concise style and unusual perspectives. Today, after a 50-year creative phase, he has an extensive body of photographic work, consistently in black and white, with numerous series from Israel, Venice and Berlin, still lifes, portraits and photographic collages. Habermann's »pearls«, his mostly constructivist watercolors, geometric forms in strong colors, finely balanced into a postcard-sized composition, seem almost like a commentary on his own conception of the image. An extensive exhibition of works from the artist's private archive can now be seen in Berlin from mid-February.
