In other European contemporary art happenings:

Mladen Stilinovic, installations, collages, photographs, books, Ludwig Museum, Budapest, Hungary: 22 April -  3 July.

Born in Belgrade, Serbia in 1947, Silinovic creates works "strongly influenced by the politics of his country, reflecting pain caused by the war which followed the fall of socialism," noted Budapest Blog.

"He constructs his works based on a dramatic, dynamic narrative, playing with linguistic signs to express the mechanisms of power and his own artistic fantasy of a world without creative barriers in which dreams and ideas can freely subvert order," the account added.

Stilinovic is considered one of the leading figures of the "New Art Practice" and lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia.

Neo Rauch retrospective, Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden, Germany: 27 May - 18 September
Curated by Werner Spies, the show covers Rauch´s work from 1993 to present. For the first time, Rauch displays a sculpture. 

Frieder Burda, the museum´s founder, told the Art Newspaper Rauch is one of the most important contemporary artists in the New Leipzig School of artists, which rose to prominance after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Rock on and practice peace and love.
