Yesterday I went to Program and the Kunstbibliothek for a couple of exhibitions. First up was ‘Fabric/K‘, a collaboration between Yukihiro Taguchi & Vladimir Karaleev using fabric as a robust material and installation pieces. Unfortunately when I got there, it was the last day of the exhibition and the work had been taken down, all was left was a nice three minute documentary video. A really playful take on fabric and I also managed to pick up some flyers for other exhibitions.

Next up I visited the Kunstbibliothek, near the NeueNational Gallerie as well, for ‘High Fidelity‘, an excellent exhibition about vinyl and its associated artwork, music + art. The exhibition itself was a typical snobish set up: quiet, can’t do this, can’t do that, but what was in it was brilliant. My favourite pieces included the John Lennon and Yoko Ono work and some really nice illustrative pieces that I can’t remember the name of now, and of course a Rolling Stones vinyl cover. Picture discs, vinyl sleeves, books, memorabilia and Andy Warhol pieces on display completed the worthwhile visit. Great pieces of graphic design throughout.

The Kunstbibliothek itself was an amazing building as well, so I took a general look around its permanent collection and some nice Japanese scriptures and scrolls. What’s more, downstairs they were having a clear out of books and posters so managed to grab a magazine, book and poster. All in all, a good Saturday afternoon!

I couldn’t take any photos inside, but did manage to sneakingly snap the above installation of a plastic shopping bags dress in the reception area.
