FILM COLOGNE: A Goth Life curated by Daata Editions. A special exhibition of artists and artworks from Daata Editions.
Art Cologne, April 26-29, 2017
The FILM COLOGNE section is dedicated to the medium of artists moving image and was introduced at ART COLOGNE three years ago. With the special exhibition “A Goth Life”, this year’s edition of ART COLOGNE will show a compilation from artwork editions curated by and selected from Daata Editions.
A Goth Life is a selection of artist works that compiled together make a composite tale of our joyously soulless, self-reflective, insular, tension and angst ridden times. The use of the internet is our guide, confident, entertainment, mirror, window, general outlet and has created a real alternative social reality, with artists commentating on and providing a contemporary anthropology for this coming of age. This will play throughout the days of the art fair. A Goth Life is playing each day on a repeated cycle.
Artists in “A Goth Life” include: Larry Achiampong, Thora Dolven Balke, David Blandy, Jake Chapman, Jacky Connolly, Keren Cytter, Casey Jane Ellison, Tracey Emin, Ed Fornieles, Leo Gabin, Yung Jake, Rachel Maclean, Jillian Mayer, Takeshi Murata, Rashaad Newsome, Tameka Norris, Hannah Perry, Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, Scott Reeder, Jacolby Satterwhite, Zadie Xa.
