The German Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice addresses the role of architecture in direct relation to the integration of immigrants.

DAMn° 57 on print

John Chiara is devoted to the contact print, for this is is the only way he can evoke the expression he is after. Having realised early on that too much information was lost in the darkroom enlargement process when using standard size negatives, he set about developing his own equipment and processes.

DAMn° 57 on art and performance

Bringing together live performance, music, lm, painting, sculpture and drawing, this is the first survey of the work of the internationally acclaimed Icelandic artist. Ragnar Kjartansson’s work combines his experience of stage traditions with experiments in repetition and endurance. Cliche?s and motifs of Western culture, romantic melancholy, and even his own conception, provide the personal and often playful subject matter of the artist’s emotionally charged work.
