Where to meet art, culture and creativity
»Be a funny mom«
We believe that, by talking to an artist in a casual way, one is able to better understand and appreciate an artist's work and way of thinking.
In our series In the Studio we document our talks with emerging artists, as well as those already well established on the international art scene. We meet them in the personal atmosphere of their workspace, in which we talk about their work and learn about the projects they are pursuing. Most importantly, we get to know them as persons, who inspire us with their particular awareness of the world.

»To understand art was a way for me to understand the world«
From design to art, magazines to furniture, haven't we all experienced the powerful attraction collecting exerts on us? Aren't we, in a way, all collectors today?
In Collector Stories we meet a new generation of collectors and established art connoisseurs in the intimate environment of their home to tell the personal stories behind their collection and to learn about what role art plays in their life.

»The expectation that women need to "deliver" babies is an act of "capitalist production".«
The Wiener Festwochen are not only a reflection of the city's infatuation with art but also provide an opportunity to open the door to other worlds and cultures.
We are living in times where proven approaches may lose their significance in the face of a changing co-ordinate system of international relationships and traditions. Thus it is an objective of the festival to search for new aspects, to inspire discussions of current artistic production and thus to provide an answer to artistic and social developments. #wienerfestwochen2016
»Souvenir [Onyx]«, 2016
Time and again we publish Limited Editions of high value with the artists we meet. The purchase of an artwork in the form of an edition represents an attractive way for people interested in art and newcomers to the art scene of laying the foundation for one's own significant art collection, which may mark the beginning of a new passion.

»Distinct Features of Fast Oscillations in Phasic and Tonic Rapid Eye Movement«
In Reviews our team of correspondents in Berlin, Vienna, Zurich and London occasionally write about their experience at exhibitions, which are either commonly accepted as current must-see events, or which could be argued as real "gems" among the abundance of art events, including shows that present emerging artists, who are presently much discussed.
