Sustainability is no longer an option today, but an existential question that affects everyone.In recent years there has been a growing emphasis on the importance of the cultural dimension for the concept of "sustainable development". This discussion already dates back to the year 1994. Sustainable development does not only refer to the process of technological innovation, but rather to cultural reorientation. For me, a culture of sustainability requires an understanding of sustainability, which, on an equal footing with the three pillars of economy, ecology and social issues, also encompasses art and culture as a transversal dimension. Winston Churchill put it a bit easier then: "First we design our buildings, then they shape us“. In other words, we create the culture that shapes us. We are shaped by the society we design! There is a constant interaction between culture and society.Art and culture draw boundaries that do not exist physically, are not tangible and are not visible.

Art is a kind of blueprint of society

Discover your inner Picasso

3 young people painting a picture

Do you know the satisfactory feeling of admiring your own creations? Let it be an assembled IKEA closet or hanging your own Painting. Whereas IKEA furniture was made in a way that even DIY-Dummies (such as the author of this article) manage to assemble it, it takes more than just an instruction booklet to create […]

Paradigm shift for jobs in the Art Scene

When I think about a gallery or museum visit, I have in mind this daunting queuing at the ticket counter, endless wall descriptions of the exposed artworks, and most strikingly that depressing and imposed silence in the exhibition rooms. On top of that, I always feel this invisible barrier of elitism and exclusivity, which make […]

Who and what are we?

This is the foundation behind the anticipated second exhibition by our featured artist and close friend of Dolffs, Bernd Kolb. The book and exhibition entitled “Brahman” is a sequel, if you will, of the hugely successful “Atman” which took place in Berlin last year. I was there with my friend and co-creator of Dolffs, and […]

Who’s afraid of the big black bat

Riddle me this, riddle me that, what do you get when you combine all your favourite super-heros, fairytale and Star Wars characters with baroque portraiture? I will let you think for a second. Ok, yes you’re right… you get pure AWESOMENESS. Excuse my butchering of the English language, but I get giddy with excitement when I […]

It’s not so black and white

It has always fascinated me, the relationship we have with black and white photography. The strange sense of disassociation the lack of colour presents to your senses and emotion. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not insinuating that black and white photos are emotionless, or evoke less feeling than colour photos do. I am […]

Just you and the light

Since we live largely in an age of photographic image manipulation, filters tricks and trickery, I thought I’d touch on a original “filter“ photographic technique from yesteryear – Pinhole photography. Now I heard a few of you gust fast at how old I must be. And no, I’m not using a push chair. But this […]
