VERVE Magazine No. 01

Usually home based in digital realms, VERVE-MAGAZINE is crossing borders and stepping on paper terrain. After this thing called “the internet” served your very own computer with fashion shoots, art, photography, and other kinds of visual inspiration, never seen in such a unique online version before, the screen’s VERVE wanted to slip into a different cloth: This is VERVE MAGAZINE’s very first print issue.

As his new appearance needed to suit his one-of-a-kind style, this magazine is not only what artists like Jonathan Meese, Dan Miller or Rachel de Joode contributed, but also what every you and every me makes out of it. Different kinds of fine paper were selected for that special fit in an oversized format and it’s meant to be changed and rearranged just the way you feel today.

So for the first time it’s not a cursor that glides over paintings, sneakers or pictures from far far away – but your fingertips.

_ Size 35x50 cm (closed), 70x50 cm (open) with poster 70x100 cm

We just came back from the PARIS PHOTO 2013 international fine art photography fair that was held from November 14th to 17th in the impressive location at Grand Palais in the centre of Paris. I spend three days there and the photos above are only a small selection of my personal highlights of the fair.
With over 160 international galleries showcasing the work of photography artists ranging from legends like René Burri, Helmut Newton and Lee Friedlander, contemporary artists like Jürgen Teller and Araki Nobuyoshi to newcomers like Julien Mauve PARIS PHOTO was simply an overload of visual inspiration. Really impressive – next year in autumn I will be on my way to Paris again.

Art Fair & Exhibition – P/ART Hamburg 2013

Last weekend for three days a new art fair & exhibition platform for independent artists opened its doors in Hamburg: P/ART Producers Art Fair. The founders describe the concept as “P/ART will function as an open space that will generate encounters between artists and visitors, as well as offering a unique experience of the creative process itself”.  The industrial “Kolbenhof” area suited perfectly for an art event like this. Here are some of our personal highlights.. we hope to see P/ART next year again!
