Art in Germany: Gregor Schneider’s dying-room

All the artists we select for our ‘Art in…’ weekly Rendezvous are creative in their own way. German artist Gregor Schneider works with constructed rooms, and one of his project raised controversy in 2008: the public dying-room. His work can’t be summed up with this project only but most of his work is about rooms and death. On his Wikipedia page, we can read: ‘I want to show a person, which dies a natural death or just died ...

Wendy Brandes swear rings and the ‘misinterpretation’

On April 29, our favorite jewelry designer, Wendy Brandes, wrote on her blog: ‘I’m SMH at Topshop’s Version of My Swear Rings’. In her post, she explained: ‘The sterling-silver swear-ring set from my WENDYB by Wendy Brandes line has been one of my most popular designs since I introduced it at a designer friend’s runway show in 2008.’ She just realized a huge corporate chain store was selling swear rings looking just like ...


36 Hours in Lyon, France with Seth Sherwood

Last year, we mentioned the French city of Marseille in Marseille, a beautiful city far from any cliché. The article by Amy Wilentz was published on the New York Times. Another article recently published by the newspaper caught our attention as it was this time about another beautiful French city: Lyon. Journalist Seth Sherwood describes how he feels about Lyon and only the first sentences of his article give a great insight on his experience in the ...


Urgence Darfour, the petition and the videos

Earlier this month, we published: Urgence Darfour: take action to Stop al-Bashir! The French organization organized a launch party for its new campaign and put online the petition ‘Stop Béchir’. The launch party went well but the online petition still needs some support. The petition is addressed to UN General Secretary, Mr Ban Ki-Moon and to the heads of Security Council member states. The petition says: ‘It is estimated by UN that ...


Art in Mali: Art as Real as Life Itself

Today, our ‘Art in…’ post is not about a particular artist. Two weeks ago, a reader (hello Babouyou!) sent us a link to an article on the New York Times about  art in Mali. We read it and it was so well written and interesting, with a great insight on the Dogon art and culture, we decided it should be part of this weekly post about Art. Here are some extracts from Holland Cotter article ‘In Mali, Art as Real as Life Itself’: ...
