   slot 27: Oblique Strategies

part of auction Chapter 6

With a hefty nod of respect and appreciation to Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt, my esteemed co-curator Lotta Pick, of Open White Gallery, and myself have gathered works of 18 artists under the title Oblique Strategies. The narrative of the selection is on the one hand anchored in the iconic and mystified days of the divided and occupied City of Berlin and, on the other hand, represents the vibrant and promising art scene of the capital today.

Referring to Oblique Strategies, a card game first issued in 1975 that intended to help artists break creative blocks by issuing challenging constraints, our humble hope was to gather exceptional work created by exceedingly talented artists who, like all thinking, feeling beings, were handed the most unexpected and unknown of cards: a global pandemic. We believe art has always and will always help narrate history, even if it does not use the spoken or written word, and that this is a powerful moment to gather a collective narrative.

Lotta Pick is half Swedish and half German. She was born in Berlin in the 1990s. Ashkan Sahihi was born in the 1960s and raised in Tehran, Frankfurt and New York. What they, what we, have in common is the love for Berlin and the arts. We both work in the field exclusively and currently live in Berlin. This is our natural fundament and approach in gathering the art and artists for our humble contribution to Direkte Auktion II. We hope you will enjoy it.
