21.04.2015 • In 2015, the Society for Contemporary Art at the Museum Ludwig e. V. gave the Wolfgang-Hahn prize to two artists: Michael Krebber and RH Quaytman. As a part of the award ceremony, there is a joint exhibition at the Museum Ludwig, which is open through 30 August, 2015, with a central focus on subject of the impossibility of painting. "For many years, both artists have been working on the premises, challenges and opportunities of contemporary painting and have made unique contributions on this issue," said Yilmaz Dziewior who was a member of the jury as designated Director of the Museum Ludwig.

Preparing for an interview with Michael Krebber as an artist, you find the strangest stories on the Net.

film • Do you have style? GoSee FILM presents the one-of-a-kind Iris Apfel - The film by Albert Maysles about the life of the 93-year old style icon appears in spring, a must see.

30.03.2015 • Following Grey Gardens (about the relatives of Jackie Kennedy and raccoons in the run down house) and Gimme Shelter (about the Rolling Stones tour), the new film by Albert Maysles – who sadly passed away recently at the age of 88 – is coming out now. This time he focussed on Iris Apfel, one of New York's most extravagant style icons. But IRIS is not only about Apfel’s style, but also, and most of all about her witty way with words, her marriage and her childhood in Queens during the great depression. Photographer Bruce Weber, teeny media queen Tavi, and Harold Koda from the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art are also in the film – but Iris and her witty remarks are by far the irrefutable stars of the documentary.

Albert Maysles daughter Rebekah, producer of the film, describes the production as a magical experience. "My father was always interested in making portraits of people and simply showing them the way they are. He loved working with Iris. I watched them on several occasions when he nudged her and said something sweet to her. We were a close team and enjoyed each...
