- the world as a

The objectivist Staging the world as a play It is my wish to come very close, strikingly close, to the times in which we live, without submitting to artistic dogma...I need the connection to the world of senses, the courage to portray ugliness, life as it comes. - Otto Dix In the 1920s, Otto Dix was the artist of Neue Sachlichkeit, the New Objectivity, par excellence. Painting in a very realistic, almost photographic style, he chose as subjects the poverty, violence, death, and war that he experienced as a soldier in World War I. After this terrible experience, he painted the famous triptych The War. Dix staged the world as a play, a grotesque farce. But the form he chose to do so was based on the classical canon of beauty. Dix lived his life and served art, for he adhered to the age-old rule that the American painter Ad Reinhardt put in a nutshell: Life is life, and art is art.

A real-time five-hour story set in an airport cocktail lounge during a global disaster. Five disparate people are trapped inside: Karen, a single mother waiting for her online date; Rick, the down-on-his-luck airport lounge bartender; Luke, a pastor on the run; Rachel, a cool Hitchcock blonde incapable of true human contact; and finally a mysterious voice known as Player One. Slowly, each reveals the truth about themselves while the world as they know it comes to an end. In the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and J.G. Ballard, Coupland explores the modern crises of time, human identity, society, religion and the afterlife. The book asks as many questions as it answers and readers will leave the story with no doubt that we are in a new phase of existence as a species - and that there is no turning back.
Robinson Crusoe, a novel, first published in 1719, tells the story of a castaway who spends thirty years on a remote tropical island, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers, before being rescued.

There has barely been an important architect in the world for the past century that has not taken advantage of the possibilities of the tentative play and experimentation provided by the design of exhibition sites for trade fairs and world expos. This publication aims at providing a combination of very recent examples from trade fairs and cultural spaces. The spectacular selection of projects ranges from a small stand designed to capture the visitors attention at a large trade fair, such as the Sci Fi project, to large exhibition sites of museum-like proportion such as the BMW Center, as well as temporary exhibition spaces in cultural centers and permanent showrooms. There are also various interesting examples of innovations in the design of exhibition spaces whose goal is simply to promote with no link to a specific commercial or cultural product.
