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 [...]
We cordially invite you to attend the presentation of Martin Arnold‘s new catalogue at Galerie Martin Janda on Saturday, April 18 2015, 1–3 pm.
Gross Anatomies is the first comprehensive monograph to document Martin Arnold‘s artistic development, focusing on the cartoon films created in recent years. It presents both the formal characteristics of his works and their discursive positioning as far as issues such as »celanimation«, »repetition«, and »disappearance« are concerned. It also deals with the question of how to present filmic works in a book. Martin Arnold has created an image sequence specifically for this medium.

Július Koller, UFOlogist, sceptic and game-player, is considered the key figure in 20th century Slovak art. The Ganek Gallery is a book devoted to reconstructing one of his most important artistic projects. This legendary gallery was situated on a mountain peak, highly regarded by climbers, in the High Tatras range. Although no works were ever actually displayed there, its aim was to communicate thoughts and ideas which [...]
The publication with texts by Catharina Kahane and Martin Prinzhorn (ger/eng) is being published by DISTANZ Verlag and presents Adriana Czernin's works from recent years.
The limited special edition, each with an original drawing, is published in an edition of 18 copies.
In the drawings of this series Adriana Czernin excluded the depiction of physicality and focused entirely on the ornament. Jagged brown and black tendrils hook into one another and form a thicket of patterns and shapes. Through repetition and condensation the impression of deconstruction and fragmentation of an originally homogeneous pattern arises. In fact, it is a self-contained composition that creates new meanings through overlays.
