Vienna-based architect Martin Feiersinger and his brother, artist and photographer Werner Feiersinger, have traveled extensively across Northern Italy in order to document the region’s modern architecture after World War II.

In their study, they have focused exclusively on distinctive buildings rather than entire urban structures, and they have selected the included projects as exemplary representations of neorealism, rationalism, brutalism, and organic styles.
The Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Municipal Government of La Paz and Cultural Vision Foundation are organizing the IX International Biennial of Art, SIART-Bolivia 2016, to be held from October 10 to November 11, 2016, in the city of La Paz – Bolivia.

Reflecting a strong scenographic turn in Kolding’s recent practice—including his undertaking the stage design for a new operatic production of Virginia Woolf’s novel To The Lighthouse, to be premiered next year as part of the Bregenzer Festspiele in Austria—the exhibition centers on a group of life-sized sculptural figures presented in a stage-like environment.
Kolding’s work has long revolved around the construction and use of space. From an early focus on the relationships and contradictions that emerge between the planning and the use of urban and architectural spaces—as dynamic social and political spaces rather than static physical [...]
