Coming of Age by Virgil Abloh

Coming of Age by Virgil Abloh

Fashion can be the most frivolous industry, but also one of the most creative. The line between just clothes and art is sometimes thin, especially if we talk about designers like Virgil Abloh, the current Louis Vuitton‘s artistic director. Famous for customizing a deadstock of Champion‘s clothes that cost just $40 € for $550 or more, we are not sure if he is a genius laughing in the face of capitalism using its mechanisms, or just a clever marketing guy. Anyway, his taste and his original imprint is something undeniable….

Zero Gravity: An outer space exhibition

Zero Gravity: An outer space exhibition

Can you imagine how was life on earth before Neil Amstrong put a foot on the moon? Probably most of the people who were watching the first astronauts landing on the satellite didn’t imagine that they would see something like that. This event changed the perception of the future and as a consequence, films, architecture, music, and other arts were influenced by this situation. Space travels, the moon, other planets, and the universe were everywhere, and artists like Andy Warhol, Sol LeWitt, Annie Leibovitz or Robert Rauschenberg dedicated some of their works of…

But how do we perceive emptiness? The artist Ivan Paskalev had developed a multimedia installation with the paradoxical intention of answering this philosophical question and visualizing this non-visible space. The glazed foyer of the Referats für Arbeit und Wirtschaft (department for work and business) serves him not only as…

Isca Greenield Sanders

Nowadays social networks can offer a costumbrist portrait of different contemporary lives across the globe. Sixty or seventy years ago, when neither Instagram nor Facebook existed, photographies and slides were the media to document the holidays. The amount of snapshot was limited to the reel and you didn’t know what to expect from that until the development of the film was done. Surprises like overexposure or fingers that shouldn’t be there came out. Isca Greenfield Sanders plays with nostalgia and is inspired by anonymous pictures of American leisure culture from the last…
