Art and Architecture can be interpreted as a a form of expression how humankind asserts itself in a certain environment, and the challenges it implies. Collectors Agenda has put together a series of artworks by international artists, who explore and reinterpret this interplay from different perspectives, for the »100 Häuser« magazine in the form of a limited edition.
Sculptor and photographer Werner Feiersinger (*1966 in Brixlegg, Tyrol) challenges the fractures and controversies caused by ambivalent objects and photographies which document what's already well-known. As a result of this process, he often points out surprising and unconventional perspectives. Feiersinger applies an accuracy in his photography which is matched by the meticulousness of his research and preparation work.
The edition is a framed photograph from his extensive series Chandigarh Redux. Chandigarh is Le Corbusier's planned city in Northern India. It is a peculiar place, not [...]

Jun Yang’s monograph is a series of six books, which altogether form one monograph, though it might be surprising when looking at all issues. Formats, papers, covers, printing techniques, and most importantly, the name of the artist change: from June Young, Yang Jun, Tun Yang, Yi Chuan to Jan Jung, and Jun Yang. The six-part monograph is structured alongside key issues and key projects the artist has done over the past eighteen years.
According to its general definition, a monograph is a specialist work of writing on a single subject, usually by a single author. This is also the case here: the subject is the work of Jun Yang and the monograph is overseen by one editor, yet many authors write. However, the comprehensive Monograph-Project is not an overly ambitious monograph that celebrates one artist’s [...]
A new distinctly artistic view at Chandigarh: Werner Feiersinger's comprehensive pictorial account of the city today.
Chandigarh, built in the 1950s to a scheme by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret with their team of international and Indian architects, until the present day is regarded an icon of modernist urban design. Austrian artist Werner Feiersinger has recently travelled to the legendary capital of India’s federal state Punjab. Inspired by Ernst Scheidegger’s book Chandigarh 1956, he has put together a vast pictorial account of the city’s famous architecture today.
This new book features some 300 of Feiersinger’s photographs. With the keen eye of a sculptor, he shows the expressive sculptural qualities of the buildings. He captures the place’s vivid atmosphere and virtuosity and illustrates its continuous topicality. This artistic approach clearly distinguishes this book from previous publications on Chandigarh, most of which are of [...]
