‚My higher dream involves the projection of light into the great sky, the exploration of the universe as it presents itself into light, untouched, without obstacles – the airspace ist he only environment that offers mankind almost unlimited freedom.’

Otto Piene, 1961



Escorted by the night we arrived at the Neue Nationalgalerie. The colorful lights glaring through the glas facade. Spontaneously we resorted us on the ’poetic space travel’ of color/ sound and magic.

Otto Piene (1928-2014) was a German environmental artist, printmarker and painter known for his colourful paintings, open-air sculptures and a leading figure in technology-based art. The artist studied art in Munich and Dusseldorf. As one of the founder of the European post-war movement group ZERO he was searching for a new beginning more specifically a of the past unmortgaged ’zero hour’.

The exhibition ‘The Proliferation of the Sun’ at Berlin Neue Nationalgalerie was originally composed for a small off stage in New York. In the same year it was presented in Dortmund, Nurnberg and Cologne. Currently the same 1000 handpainted glas dia are projected into the open space of the upper hall of the Neue Nationalgalerie. Piene calls this a ’poetic space travel’.

The artist died shortly after the opening of his current exhibition of his work at Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin on 17th of July 2014. As a tribute to the artist the event will go ahead. His projections can be explored at Neue Nationalgalerie Tuesday to Sunday 10p.m. to 3a.m.. The relating exhibition is shown at Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, Berlin.

Flipping through some beautifully arranged ‘coffee table book’s and ‘inspiration magazines’ in a Stockholmian high end minimalist clothing store I stumbled on some irritating but at the same time inspiring drawings of a handful sushi porn



Yes, sushi, geishas, bondage in a way the link is rather obvious but still these drawings exhilarating fascinated me.
The creator I discovered is the German artist, Boris Hoppek, coming from the sphere of graffiti, provoking in drawings, paintings, photographs, as well as videos, sculptures and installation art pieces. The reoccurring topics are sexuality, violence and racism expressed in a clear style that seems almost innocent at the first glimpse. ‘Photos showing women with problems or just being beautiful’ he sais on his homepage.
‘just the plain accurate artwork, seriously!!’

Speaking mannequins, amazing dresses, gender confusion and show pieces. Design and curating wise was the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibitions in Stockholm’s Arktiketurmuseet a Spectacle for all senses!

“Anyone with a heart-shaped pump will exit his fashion world seduced, lifted, entertained, moved, appy. Gaultier is alive and unforgettable”

I often couldn’t stop laughing, because he is such an over the top genius full of skills and irony!
