My article 'Shalom Tel Aviv' out now. November edition of Koktejl magazine. Easy to write about a country of my soul, about the people I love and about a culture I experienced with all their festivities and holidays like yom kipur, rosch hashanah and many others. I wrote about the historical.Tzedek, my favourite area in TLV, old Jaffa, I wrote about my friends legendary bar @kulialma, about the luxury hotel.that used to be a prison @thesetaitelaviv, and of course about the most appealing architecture style with minimal line #bauhausarchitecture . Of course the legendary nightlife is mentioned and I called it 'shabatt night fever', for me Tel Aviv is the city of my soul, it has it all, the great vibe, beautiful and smart people, youth, art, the sea and waves, best gastronomy and lots of creativity. I will be back❤ #telavivart#telaviv#israel#article#traveller
Yves, Frank and me
working on the illustration for the newly published book
on Gropius building W33, recently shown at the Frankfurt Buchmesse 2018 ‚HAUS AUERBACH von Walter Gropius mit Adolf Meyer by Barbara Happe and Martin S. Fischer‘, one part of our contributions to #bauhaus100 .
A book dealing with the stunning story about Walter Gropius’ first residential building in Germany (W33) following his idea of a modular construction system. Also called Haus Auerbach after it’s original owners, this nearly unknown treasure of the town of Jena has been most carefully restored and repainted to the highest standards of conservation. It took the owners Barbara Happe and Martin S. Fischer more than 10 years after the first edition of their book about the house to launch the new book, filled with the whole story, lots of historical maps, documents and pictures and a bunch of fine current photographs by me (made with the state of the art camera system of #phaseonephoto and the help of Willy Oster and Malte_Koezle ) including some pieces of art created by OSTER+KOEZLE specially for the interior of the house. The book can be purchased at:
The above photograph is a snapshot of me working in between the Gold Table of Yves Klein, the Barcelona chairs of Mies van der Rohe and a wonderful tapestry by Frank Stella, one of our predecessors in the exhibition tradition of the Alte Strassenbahn Depot Jena.
