Kling & Bang Defies Recession
Only last month, in August, Kling & Bang was in Hamburg for the Subvision Festival in the new Hafencity area now being redeveloped. This was a major event, curated by Martin Koettering and Brigitte Kölle, and produced in cooperation with the major art institutions of the city. Kling & Bang sent four artist: Eirún Sigurðardóttir, Bjarni Massi, Unnar Örn and Huginn Arason.
The Hamburg event came hard on the heals of Kling & Bang's participation in NO SOUL FOR SALE – A FESTIVAL OF INDEPENDENTS, held in June in the old Dia Center in New York City. This was an event designed to bring together some of the most interesting not-for-profit art spaces from around the world. In the words of the organisers: "NO SOUL FOR SALE will be a gathering of the most exciting, innovative and respected not-for-profit centers, alternative institutions, artists’ collectives and independent enterprises that are contributing to the international art scene by inventing new strategies of distribution and aggregation."
