During my vacations in Mexico, I visited the Contemporary Art Museum of Queretaro. Queretaro is a city in the center of Mexico and counts with almost 1.5 million population. It has a province culture movement distributed in a couple of important museums for the city and one of them is the MACQ that is the newest one. After my visit in the museum, I watched their website and realize that they were too open for project proposals. Then I send the proposal of the ODBK/PTI Happening and they accepted to establish the ODBK for two days in the installations of the Museum....

I received an email from Medium, actually, I don't remember from whom, but the title of the articles are so seductive and the format of the article is easy and quick to read then after visiting and register in the website I couldn't stop. The free version offers only three articles for free, but soon there was not enough, so I bought a subscription for one year. I read and read, and I found people who have their income writing articles. For me writing articles in an easy and quick format started with the blog of ODBK, now I decided to become in blogger also, and enjoying transmitting my knowledge in contemporary art to all. Now I created my blog in medium and publish my first article.. hope you enjoy it and send me your comments: https://dhadmann.medium.com/

ODBK Hamburger Bahnhof Museum Berlin

On December 4th, 2020 ODBK launched the Equality and Diversity Certification for Art Institutions. This document is part of a study ODBK is carrying out in order to jump-start the process of understanding a fundamental problem in the artistic sphere that persists unchanged. The issue refers to the historic inequality and non-diversity clinging to our artistic institutions. ODBK proposes the collective awakening from this problematic slumber and the formulation of new ideas, mechanisms, communities, processes and initiatives that will inevitably shift our understanding.

dhadmann - los socios y cia dhadmann - los socios y cia

I am very surprised at the results that were obtained from said participatory exercise to create the installation of Los Socios y Cia. Mainly because I never imagined that so many people felt with the imagination and wanted to take the time to create a drawing at that time.

In ODBK we point out that today, the art market plays a key role in the definition of the contemporary art world, and has a direct influence what future generations will recognize as the art of our current time. We recognize that the current economic model of the contemporary art market is built over a manipulative and speculative system that should be changed in order to have an equal distribution of the income, attention and opportunities for all participants in the art world.Read More...

There are ideas, concepts, places or objects that are fixed defined in our mind in order to be easily recognized. But when we move, add or remove pieces that conform that definition then we are in a dilemma of recognition.That place where that emptiness live to create a new something is what brings purpose to my work: “the gray area”. Bringing “gray area things” into the daily life of the people is a political process. Gray areas are produced by the society itself and this is the reason why most of my works are participative or placed in semi public spaces. Bringing acceptance (or votes) of those things is a way to expand the comfort zone of the society we live in order to improve it.Read More...

This is the main question I try to answer through my painting process. In this process, I normally take images I find on the Internet or style magazines used primarily for advertising or illustrating a concept, an idea or a product (in the end ads are also trying to illustrate something) and I transform them into non-concept compositions.Read More...
