BETTINA VON ZWEHL, 'LAMENT' BOOK REVIEW ON PHOTOMONITOR
'Lament' by Bettina von Zwehl and Josh Cohen was published to coincide with an exhibition at the Freud Museum, London.
"In its theme, light and dark, echoing the rhythm of life and death, the book goes back to the foundations of photography. Like in the photographic picture, light and dark cannot be separated – or rather, one cannot exist without the other."

ALICE MAHER: THE IRISH TIMES, 30 JULY 2016
Modern Ireland in 100 Artworks: The Four Directions by Alice Maher
"Maher’s work is characterised by the diversity of media, such as drawings, prints, installations and film. It is also characterised by the range of materials used, from bees, brambles, flax and human hair to ox hearts. Variation suggests an enduring search via a circuitous route that slowly gives form to a core set of preoccupations. It is a continual return, like a tongue to a loosening tooth."
OLA KOLEHMAINEN AND RALPH FLECK : 'FREUNDSCHAFTSSPIEL ISTANBUL : FREIBURG' MUSEUM FüR NEUE KUNST, FREIBURG. 9 JULY - 9 OCTOBER 2016
A selection of works from the collection of the Stadtische Museen, Freiburg and the private collection of Ayse Umur, this exhibition is the result of correspondences between collections based in different geo-political contexts, yet sharing related artistic attitudes.
"Freundschaftsspiel, Istanbul : Freiburg" surveys a range of historically and politically charged contexts including gender, language, identity and humour. In parallel with this contextual framework, the diversity of the museum’s contemporary collection is on display as it is assembled with a seldom seen, yet impactful private collection.
Includes works by Ralph Fleck, Nilbar Güreş, Ali Kazma, Joseph Kosuth, Anselm Kiefer, Ola Kolehmainen and Viviane Sassen.
BETTINA VON ZWEHL: INVITATION TO FREQUENT THE SHADOWS
A new exhibition by Bettina von Zwehl that quietly infiltrates the Freud Museum with the delicate small silhouettes of a young girl, shadowy portraits of women and an immersive light installation. Von Zwehl is the first artist to respond directly to Anna Freud's archive. Freud was a pioneering child psychoanalyst and youngest daughter of Sigmund. She lived for 44 years in the house that is now the Freud Museum.
