As you encounter the Moroccan woven and knotted carpets, with their intensive graphic and colour impact from twentieth-century Western painting, a startling relationship becomes visible. The eschewal of figurative representation by the Arabs and Berbers in Maghreb led – parallel to the Western tradition – to radical abstraction, a completely free, seemingly ‘modern’ interaction with colour and form. The more general question of the basic provisos of art, their origins and the path to abstraction emerges.

Villa de Bondt – Contemporary Jewellery – September 7 to 28, 2013: Petra Zimmermann invites you to join her at the exhibition opening at Villa de Bondt in Gent on Saturday, September 7, from 5pm to 8pm.
Her jewellery objects are forthright, sensuous and opulent. Her early works already reveal an artistic strategy she has continued to pursue ever since: an allusive confrontation of provided material and individually designed plastic forms.
Thus behind the visual opulence of her work she succeeds in handling relevant aesthetic and social themes in her pieces – relevant for every generation.

Ulo Florack - The Woodruff Key displays around 100 pieces by the painter and jewellery artist from July 24 until October 6 in the Welserhalle of the Maximilian-
museum Augsburg, Germany. The representation of mysterious and fantastical figures, magical inscriptions and mythical beings are characteristic of the jewellery works and art objects created by Ulo Florack. With artistic mastery and an exuberant imagination, he tells stories using gold, silver, platinum and enamel. The question of whether he is more a painter or a jewellery artist cannot be answered defi nitively: both aspects cross-pollinate each other. His style is very distinctive and his objects use surprising ideological and intelligent imagery, which consciously hovers in the grey area between fantasy and reality.
The exhibition catalogue with Japanese binding presents the extraordinary jewellery by Ulo Florack, which display humour, wit and critical powers of observation.

25th Anniversary of ARNOLDSCHE
Der Verlag ARNOLDSCHE Art Publishers wird in diesem Monat 25 Jahre alt.
„Es gibt ein Bild von Klee, das Angelus Novus heißt. Ein Engel ist darauf dargestellt, der aussieht, als wäre er im Begriff, sich von etwas zu entfernen, worauf er starrt.“ Für Benjamin war dieses Werk mehr als nur ein Bild. Es war ein Denkbild. „Der Engel der Geschichte muß so aussehen“, schreibt Benjamin. „Er hat das Antlitz der Vergangenheit zugewandt“ und blickt staunend auf die Geschichte, von der er sich mit fortschreitender Gegenwart immer weiter entfernt. So oder so ähnlich muss sich der Verleger Dieter Zühlsdorff fühlen, wenn er staunend auf die Geschichte seines Verlages zurückblickt, die vor 25 Jahren begann....
Den internationalen Erfolg verdankt der Verlag insbesondere seinem dienstältesten und erfahrensten Mitarbeiter: Dirk Allgaier. Zu ARNOLDSCHE Art Publishers kam der studierte Archäologe 1993. Als Gabriela Arnold wenige Jahre später den Verlag verlässt, prägt das Programm und den Geist des Hauses entscheidend mit. Seit dem Jahrtausendwechsel hat er seine Kontakte zu internationalen Autoren, Künstlern, Partnern und Kunden kontinuierlich ausgebaut. Dirk Allgaiers Rolle und Aufgabe soll künftig noch mehr Gewicht bekommen. An ihn wird Zühlsdorff, der im Jubiläumsjahr des Verlags seinen 65. Geburtstag feiert, den Staffelstab übergeben. „Ich habe ihn ganz gezielt als meinen Nachfolger aufgebaut und freue mich nun, als ‚Alt-Verleger‘ hinter den ‚Jung-Verleger‘ zurücktreten zu können“, betont Dieter Zühlsdorff.
