Iris Dressler and Hans D. Christ announced as conveners of the 3rd Bergen Assembly

“What is and what constitutes an assembly? Where does it take place, and where does it not? Who appears in it, and who doesn’t? Who forms, enables, convenes, abrogates, or forbids it? Can an assembly be enacted, exposed, designed, danced, chanted? Can it be silent, invisible, unexpected, or even passive? What are the techniques and what are the aesthetics of assembly? What makes it emancipatory and political, and what turns it into an act of repression? What would we call a fake assembly?” (Iris Dressler and Hans D. Christ, directors of Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart) Bergen Assembly is a perennial model for artistic production and research that is structured around public events taking place in the city of Bergen every three years. It responds to the perceived need for alternative temporalities of art production and

First major exhibition exploring Gluck’s life and work on view at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery

The 20th century artist Gluck (1895-1978), now also recognised as a trailblazer of gender fluidity, is the subject of a major new exhibition at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery. Thanks mainly to money raised by National Lottery players, Gluck: Art & Identity brings together around 30 rarely-seen paintings and extensive personal ephemera – in the world’s first major exhibition exploring the artist’s life and work. Born Hannah Gluckstein into a wealthy Jewish family, Gluck attended art school in London and ran away to Cornwall with fellow students during World War I. The artist mixed with the Newlyn School of painters, and was sketched by Alfred Munnings smoking a pipe in Roma-style dress, before adopting the name Gluck and creating a controversial masculine identity incorporating men’s tailoring, barber-cut short hair and a mannish demeanor. Gluck, who
