22.04.2015 •  "It just keeps getting better at the Art Cologne," said Arne Ehmann from the Thaddaeus Ropac Gallery (Paris/Salzburg).

"The Art Cologne offers good quality in all areas," Director Veronique Ansorge praised. "Cologne is always good for us," Bjerggaard Bo from Copenhagen adds, who was able to welcome collectors and museum professionals to his booth.

The final report of the ART COLOGNE was so overwhelmingly positive for the exhibitors. And Carsten Greve Gallery told us in a nutshell: "On Wednesday, you could already feel the excitement in the air – and that wasn't always the case in the past few years.

A recent highlight of the Berlin club and gallery scene being the conversion of regular portaloos into the mobile party and wellness sensation, the Dixicuzzi.

Chluba invites you to paddle along to his exclusive homemade bath performance where he'll be donning his favorite red swimsuit (the artist wears only red clothes since the age of 14) in a nightclub near you. With decent continuous flow water heaters and a plentiful supply of fur hats, the spa is also available for use in winter.

The mobile exhibition alternative has been touring the capital since 2011 and can also be visited in the rest of Germany.

07.04.2015 • Another highlight in Los Angeles' growing art scene was the opening of a great photography show in the newly opened TASCHEN Gallery.

An inspiration for artists such as Richard Lindner, Allen Jones and Helmut Newton, Eric Stanton created panel stories and pulp fiction covers of voluptuous,...
