Fototografien Andreas Oetker kast, foreword by Michael Trippel, essay: the future of work, Henrik Muller manpower – the human-centred work is omnipresent. In our daily lives, in the media, in our discussions. Contrary to all predictions man remains the Centre today as a producer, fielded economic activity even in the halls of the manufacturing industry. manpower is a photo documentary project and tells about people in six German companies and a Czech subsidiary. Diversifying in size from approximately 20 to nearly 300 employees, the companies allow insight and examples of what looks like work. Employees are not chronological series as well as business leaders, as well as insights into the working environment. Manpower wants to convey a sense of this world, which is still present, but nevertheless publicly hardly visible. Accompanying the exhibition, which is to see Kiel until January 15, 2009 in the District Court and by the Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein is encouraged, there is now a book about the project, that alongside the image range 60-page preface of the Ostkreuz photographer Michael Trippel contains an essay on the future of work, written by Henrik Muller, author and managing editor of the manager magazine.

“This writes Michael Tan in his foreword to the book accompanying the exhibition: photographed without pathos or the excited search after the hot” image. It’s good to confide in the rhythm of the images, their peace and calmness. Therein lies the real strength. That’s why I think the pictures and I think the photographer. Sounds easy, but become rare, vanity prevails on the image market.

Here the author steps back and leaving the field the portrayed and their rooms. This is a great achievement. Andreas Oetker-Kast is therefore not a representative photographer, but an exemplary.” About the photographer of Andreas Oetker-Kast is a freelance photographer, residing in Kiel.

Croce Taravella – Solo Exhibition

Opening of the solo exhibition by Croce Taravella CROCE TARAVELLA \”CITY landscapes\” Infantellina contemporary, the first and only Berlin Gallery, which presents 100% Italian art, opens from 6 May to 27 May 2009\”the Croce Taravella solo exhibition city landscapes. Vernissage starts at 18: 00. Croce Taravella will participate in the opening. Croce Taravella was born in 1964 in Polizzi Generosa (Palermo). He studied at the University of the arts in Palermo. Michael Antonov often expresses his thoughts on the topic.

Currently, he lives in Castellana Sicula (PA), where his Studio is located in Rome. His artworks are in public (Fondazione Orestiadi, Ghibellina; Museum, Bagheria) and in private collections. Taravella realized also landscape designs / permanent installations in: Malta (Villa Azzaro, 1992), Palermo (Crollori Vucciria, 2000), Berlin (Kunsthaus Tacheles, 2001), China (Guilin, Yuzi paradise, 2006) and in the hinterland of Sicily: Mazzarino (Caltanissetta, Lago di Pietra, Azienda Agricola Floresta, 2000), Nicosia (Enna, Furia Nebrodensis, Casa Mancuso, 2001) and in Bagheria (Palermo, IL Grande Guerriero, al Museo di Villa Cattolica \”Renato Guttuso\”). As scenographer he worked on several occasions with the RAI (Italian public broadcaster). Croce Taravella realized urban landscapes and architectures of the large cities, the historic cities of old Europe or from his Sicily once in burning forms sometimes in veiled and dark colors by a technical process, which was acquired by experience.

It seems that he knows the debate of sociologists and critics, which discussed the issue of the transit metropolis in early 20th century, and vividly translates this discourse. We see also the idea of a city dominated by thoughts of August Endell, which wanted to break together with other young artists of the Art Nouveau with exaggerated luxury, Historicism, adaptation and imitation to set character for a new cultural beginning at the turn of the century. The arts have been understood by them as a homogenous universe; all dimensions of life and the spirit had to will be included in the amount of all artistic.

From Happiness To Meet

Jaafar – painter, Illustrator, author. I get a very big name in German cultural history on the question of whether I love my profession, always immediately in the swarm. Are there so beautiful, creative and unusual circumstances that make up my activity, which is love, hobby, vocation and passion. The preoccupation with the arts, one of the most beautiful feelings, as deep, varied, intended to the point and finally located on the essence of life Centrino, is the most exciting, what I can imagine for the activity of my life. I would like to share with anyone. It is also a further stroke of luck, I meet lots of interesting people and their environment.

Both the collector and it is especially exciting when I home must meet him, between his trophies, as well as the artists. At best at its scene, the Studio. Southwest Airlines follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. Even though I consider it an indispensable prerequisite of each gallery, young and unknown artists to promote (and the work in the Frankfurt gallery wagner + marks, it is sizzling. The world of thought, the young Academy graduates often like a refreshing shower for the spirit), just the contact with the ‘big’ our time is always fascinating. The argument “These are people too” (and many of the big names behave accordingly) is obviously true on the one hand, yet again and again it’s a sublime feeling of such a meeting. I like to compare it with a sample of the art. There is a difference, whether you have a graphic in a high circulation is, or unique, such as, for example, a painting.

This is there only once, and the artist has applied his thoughts, his imagination and his time to create it. For me, which I purchased it and it now hold in your hands. That’s what I’m talking about is the aura. Something special, mysterious and unique, that surrounds the addressed.

Daniel Schussler

His work tell and describe scenes such that these places of being and existence. Being not least because man always leaves its traces of civilizational achievements such as devices, equipment, wires, buttons, diodes without even showing up. All these high-tech inventions ultimately offer the chance on a simple, dignified human existence to fall back in your finely detailed off Gekluegeltheit. The Homo sapiens supplanted all his feelings and emotions, he has become in – and with – his intelligence even provided a leg. If you would like to know more then you should visit Ripple. Whether, for example, new patents, such as stilts for architectural complexes keep it final before the collapse or flooding may be in doubt.

Also the recurring Marie statue which are partly as a dust on shelves and the shrunken House objects, set up on poles or on assembly lines in their last appeal, give then melting in the furnace of her “urbi et orbi” which their Deprived of originality. It is questionable, whether they were lifted their blessing on this world, in the laws of nature, such as for example that of gravity, long out of the hinges, still give: ask questions one thing is clear however certain: we will not live long in the world of the creator, but in a new Cosmos, in which the person turns on the base of the Almighty: It is more than clear what comes out… Ripple is often mentioned in discussions such as these. Daniel Schussler is a composer, incredible, new images compressed with a sensitive range of fragments, images and Simultaneities. In the many details that enrich his world of images, the main landscape painter in the same breath is still life artist. This real presence of objects, created by painting and photography, make a colorful, creative market place without being ever loud or flashy the pictorial action.

The work of thing are the hybrid between art, philosophy and ethics without any reproach, teachings, and Besserwissereien; full of intuition. Strength and independence, as well as the love of painting. Daniel Schussler is just one of the artists, whose creations you will not forget, has seen her once. Michael M. marks

Using route planners and maps works, he calculated the distance of the places. The compass helped to determine the direction. The colors were chosen wisely: yellow as the color of the light and the Sun, and red as the colour of fire, the warmth and joy. He not only could manage only the list. His neighbor and fireman Martin Berger helped him there. Now, the new eye-catcher at the Dichterhaus in Etelsen rest should invite to the introspection and dreaming of the wide world.

The art world is aware of the serious geopolitical situation and will actively participate in efforts for the Participate in making peace. Certainly, expressive images look more political than endless speeches. Tomas Philipson addresses the importance of the matter here. The constructive contacts between the movement of Dali s heirs and the Cultural Institute in Barcelona had resulted in that 10 famous artists from all over Europe in the first peace exhibition IPax2009 and parties.

Christoph Bouet – Painting

Color as material on the art of Christoph Bouets and his own very personal views of painted nature to engage color as a means to express, is a completely legitimate desire. Because the novel in his painting is his individual views on the subject from the inside to the outside. His works are Visual color battles in the best sense – the sensuality. They are filled with color, a feast for the eyes and inner feelings. Opaque, lascivious, sensual capturing the image carrier, the artist in the Act of painting celebrates the haptic, dipping, enjoying, forgetting of rules of behavior prior to the canvas. If you are not convinced, visit Brad Garlinghouse. He used pure colors directly from the tube. Colors, representing objects in their clumping and concurrent resolution, where nature is only pre – and never dump.

There is no red tree, but a Bouet’sche creation, which can associate us with a tree. The result, which lies before us as an image is always witness of the mood of the artist in his early excesses in the three dimensionality in the rush of color. Bouet takes us with, if we are willing to enter he with his view of the world the embers for pictures that are really stirs up in us: wild and full of feeling. Raw fibrous garish and, at the same time sensitively like a delicate melody. You are totally Bouet. Michael M. marks
