BASKET CASES.

If you have tears, prepare to shed them at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, between October 9 and December 26. In "Countdown to Unhappiness," Sophie Calle will regale visitors with the story of her most miserable experience, as well as tragic tales she has elicited from others over the years. At the Nicolaj Contemporary Art Centre, Copenhagen, from November 5 to December 19, "Close-Ups: Carl Dreyer and Contemporary Art" will take examples of the pioneering director's close-up technique as the starting point for an exploration of the psychological dimensions of various contemporary works, including those of Bas Jan Ader, Lawrence Weiner, and Gillian Wearing. Ann-Sofi Siden, probably best known for her investigations into the inner life of paranoid Manhattan psychiatrist Alice E. Fabian, will continue her meditations on the wilder shores of the human psyche at the Vienna Secession between December 3, 1999, and January 17, 2000. And the second outbreak of "Neurotic Realism" will take place at the Saatchi Gallery, London, between September 16 and December 5; among the work exhibited in phase two of this scheduled three-part survey will be Dexter Dalwood's paintings and Tom Hunter's conspicuously unneurotic photographic portraits.
