Tom Sachs is one of those contemporary artists that many would consider polarizing. On one hand, carving your name into a Stanley tape measure with a new sticker on it and then selling it for $250 is completely absurd. On the other hand, designing the Nike x Tom Sachs Exploding Poncho is pretty damn cool. Sachs truth seems to be somewhere in between with his visceral commentary on consumerism, branding and corporate bullshit that’s brought to life in sculptural form with a hodgepodge of found materials and objects along with a not insignificant amount of the artist’s unique building methods. “Timeline” is Sachs first major solo exhibition in Germany in over 15 years and is a unique retrospective of his work over the course of his career. The lineup includes some of his most famous pieces like the Hello Kitty Nativity sculpture, life-size Miffy statue, Chanel Guillotine and a large-format sculpture of the twin towers of the World Trade Center before September 11th created specifically for the exhibit. Tom Sachs “Timeline” runs through April 26th, 2020 at the SCHAUWERK Sindelfingen Art Museum in Germany.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
