Jean-Luc Blanc at Galerie Art:Concept, Paris 
On occasion of his eighth personal exhibition at Art Concept, Jean Luc Blanc presents a new series of drawings and paintings in “faux-roman visage’.
When talking about this artist, who has been shaking up the French art-scene for the last 20 years, it is difficult to get off the beaten tracks and avoid quoting his own sources of inspiration. 
His works, halfway between palimpsests and fictional objects, become a means to confront humanity to itself and to its fundamental contradictions. 
To see his works ,hurry up! The exhibition at Art:Concept, Paris runs until 23th of April 2014.

Creating Your Own Destiny: Hassan Hajjaj in Marrakech

Hassan Hajjaj has fond childhood memories of enjoying the simple things in life, like playing outside in his hometown of Larache, walking barefoot and visiting the mountains.

Upon relocating to London his entire world changed and eventually led him on a path within the worlds of music, art and film.

We meet him in Marrakech during the Marrakech Biennale to discuss his latest projects and international exhibitions while learning some local Morroccan dialect along the way, on Freunde von Freunden.

Thank you Philipp Löffler and Salwa Benaissa.

Die Gestalten Des Letzten Ufers by Michel Houllebecq
This week Michel Houllebecq's - Author of Atomised - 5th collection of poems has finally been released in Germany and is therefore the pick of the week.
'Configuration du dernier rivage' - Die Gestalt des letzten Ufers - is a collection of his poetry in a dark blue book. In the usual manner of his nihilistic yet congenial approach, he looks at what we call live from the other side and like his fiction, his poetry is immediately recognizable for its heavy servings of existential pessimism, that we have missed so much in recent years. Get it here.

For 2 whole years Kate and her partner Edgar Lopez were on the road, collecting special moments. Under the title of ‘Nostalgia for Paradise’ Kate and Edgar show their work existing of quotes, pictures, overdrawn images that come together to form a surreal, psychedelic mash of memory. 
The exhibition is being shown until the 26th of April at Pavlov’s Dog in Berlin. More info here.
