From Friday April 24th to Sunday April 26th the Dog & Pony will show artworks with a Sci-Fi flavour at the 1st Sci-Fi Festival in Munich. We’ve asked some of our favorite artists to contribute: Franco Brambilla, Pierluigi Longo, Brendan Dawes and many more. This time we also will show a few new artworks of our own that we created especially for the event.
More information can be found on the Sci-Fi Festival’s Facebook page. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

we are delighted to be able to present you a very special event on this sunday (yes, this comes at very short notice, it’s the 22nd of February): we have invited the designer and artist Brendan Dawes to Munich for a solo-exhibition titled “Somewhere Amongst the Trees”. Brendan is a long-time friend of ours and we highly appreciate his works and ideas. He is also one of the most charming and amazing personalities which you should not miss the chance to get to know. Brendan has created new interactive sculptures especially for this show, but of course we will also have several of his classic pieces like “The Happiness Machine” or “Cinema Redux” which is also in the permanent collection of the MoMA.
Before the opening of the show, Brendan Dawes will give a talk about his work followed by a Q&A where you have the opportunity to get in conversation with the designer. If you know our place, you also know that seating is very limited, which is why we moved this part to the Maxim Kino next door, just a few minutes walk from the Dog & Pony.

Dog and Pony presents Jer Thorp, Software Artist from Vancouver, Canada currently living in New York. A former geneticist, his work explores the boundaries between science, mathematics, and art using custom-written computer programs. Thorp is currently Data Artist-in-Residence at The New York Times and Visiting Professor at the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) of NYU. His award-winning software-based work has recently been featured in Scientific American, The New Yorker, Fast Company, and Popular Science and has been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
In his exclusive Dog and Pony Show titled “W87061JVW0L” he will celebrate a retirement party for the computer that he uses in his daily art practice and which contains all his work, sketches and experiments of the past 5 years. Before going out of service and being replaced by a new model it will be allowed to go into a final nostalgic dream state, bringing back the memories of a long journey together with all its inevitable failures and great achievements.
The opening will be on Sunday, October 16th at 3pm. The artist will be present.
