This is London
This is London
by Katharina Horstmann | 05 October 2011

London, Vienna, Beijing – at the moment there is one design week after the other. As London is still considered a design metropolis, it is worth visiting the city on this occasion.

The city with the spinning wheel
The city with the spinning wheel
by Jochen Stöckmann | 30 September 2011

Tomás Saraceno’s “Cloud Cities” currently occupy Berlin’s Hamburger Bahnhof as if they were some utopia. Yet many of the seemingly spaceless and timeless spheres are there not just to be seen, but to be entered. While these transparent structures are fascinating from the inside and the outside, the exhibition as a whole does not succeed in more closely defining Saraceno’s artistic position. Yet it’s certainly worth a visit.

Popcorn in the museum
by Thomas Edelmann | 23 September 2011

For people already familiar with Apple, there are not likely to be many surprises in the exhibition “Stylectrical – von Elektrodesign, das Geschichte schreibt” (Stylectrical – on history-making, electrical design) at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Hamburg. It is a bit like going to the movies with mountains of popcorn. It does leaves nobody any the wiser but some people come away with a pleasant feeling.
