Shop • Unrestricted Views - Christoph Brech photographs the Vatican Museums. But completely empty and without any visitors – for Sieveking Publishers

25.03.2015 • Not only nights at the museum, but in broad daylight too, Christoph Brech had permission to enter the Vatican museum. What everyone interested in art has ever dreamed of has come true for the artist and photographer – a dream he now shares with us in his book. Over three years time, he was allowed to photograph the halls and galleries day and night unbothered by never-ending throngs of visitors. His pictures show empty halls and rooms devoid of people, exquisitely set tables, mysterious terraces, and works of art shot from unusual angles – views the ordinary visitor has never been granted the privilege to see – unrestricted.

The Vatican museums again become a place for amazement as selected historic pictures in the Vatican archives of times past demonstrate. Prof. Arnold Nesselrath, director of the Department for Byzantine, Medieval and Modern Art gives insight into the history of the complex in an essay, but also questions the future of the institute museum.

About – Christoph Brech was born 1964 in Schweinfurt. From 1989 to 1995, he studied painting under Franz B. Weißhaar...

Shop • 'The Stylish Life - Football' Texts by Jessica Kastrop & Ben Redelings, the book is out now at teNeues

23.03.2015 • What do Marilyn Monroe and Pelé have in common? How about Prinz William and Franz Beckenbauer? Giorgio Armani and Éric Cantona? Robbie Williams and David Beckham? They all walk the line between football and high culture, trends and popular culture.

The teNeues publishing company on its new release: "Here we see them as actors on the football pitch or as footballing film stars. football-playing monarchs or football royalty. As fashion designers creating VIP boxes for stadiums, or playmakers venturing onto the catwalk, as football-crazy pop stars or footballers who become pop stars. All these personalities show how football is much more than “putting the ball in the net”. Football is played on the big screen. It is the subject of hundreds of books and serenaded in hundreds of songs. Naturally, our new The Stylish Life series had to be dedicated to football as well. Dedicated to footballing stars’ fashion antics – on the pitch and off it – to the fans, stadiums and glamour – and, of course, to the passion for football".

Jessica Kastrop is a football presenter and one of the...

Shop • TV cook Tim Mälzer arouses our appetite with the new cookbook 'Heimat' from the MOSAIK PUBLISHING COMPANY - with regional illustrations by Rinah LANG

10.03.2015 • There is nothing like home cooking is exactly what TV cook Tim Mälzer thinks. For his new cookbook 'Heimat' from the MOSAIK PUBLISHING COMPANY, he set out on a culinary journey spanning from Lake Constance to the island of Sylt where he gathered the secrets of traditional cuisine. Rinah LANG garnished the book with illustrations typical of the regions visited.

In an interview, Tim Mälzer explains: "We really have outstanding products. But I would like to stress that it is not about a competition of different regional cuisines. It is about getting people to see what is happening right in their own front yard. It’s worth it, we have very many great things. " We second that emotion.

Shop • GoSee book suggestion: 'Art forms of nature' the illustrative observation of nature by Ernst Heinrich Haeckel who was a source of inspiration and a pioneer of the Art Nouveau at the beginning of the 20th century

09.03.2015 • Already the architects of the Art Nouveau were enthusiastic about Ernst Heinrich Haeckel’s (1834-1919) finely drawn observations of nature with symmetry, art and nature merging with one another. Apart from being an excellent biologist and researcher, he was also a gifted draftsman, which is impressively demonstrated by his naturalistic and plastic illustrations and plates. His medusas, calcareous sponges, anemones and other marine species emerged into the imaginative styles of the Art Nouveau and have lost nothing of their fascination until today.

In his timeless tables “Kunstformen der Natur” (1899-1904) Haeckel gives his monism a form of artistic expression and connects his scientific knowledge with his artistic talent. According to Haeckel, biology was related to art in many ways.

EXHIBITION MAGAZINE is run by Art Director EDWIN SBERRO and Creative Director of one more studio, GAEL HUGO, whom we quizzed on the new issue….

Can you tell us a bit about the idea behind EXHIBITION MAGAZINE? GAEL HUGO: “Exhibition is actually probably more an art book with a soft cover than a real magazine, in common terms. All photographers are committed to work on the yearly issue, on the specific theme, with total freedom. The idea with...
