The Museum of Me – Your social life in an exhibition

Well, yes – it is kind of weird using this feature created by intel and called “The Museum of Me”: Simply connect with your facebook account and all your social activities in the network are used to create a virtual exhibition in a virtual museum.

In a short film you then are led through the exhibition hall, see people standing in front of a wall full of all your profile and wall pictures or a video screen filled with your status updates. When I tried the fake museum, they told me the word I have used the most so far, was “I” – how appropriate!

Interview with Morgan Blair

If inspiration strikes in Brooklyn – this is where Morgan Blair lives – everything must serve that is next to her: receipts, flyers or moleskine books she has put in her bag precautionary – nothing can stop Blair at that time.

That’s great, we think, because this is what her often absurd and wonderful drawings and paintings originate from. Maybe they are not finished with the final stroke, remain fragmentary. But always colourful!

Why Morgan Blair is making art at all and what kind of chocolate she likes best you can read after the click!

Now available at ARTFLAKES: Archiv für Kunst und Geschichte

Modigliani, Monet und Cezanne: art lovers will prick up their ears, because these are among the absolute classics of art history.

Almost 10.000 pictures out of the Archiv für Kunst und Geschichte (archive of art and history) are now availabe for sale at ARTFLAKES.

So you can buy the seemingly coquettish Jeanne Hebuterne by Amedeo Modigliani (on the left) for example as GalleryPrint or framed art print.

But we were not only allowed to take all those classics of art history, but several overwhelming photographies from the turn of the 19th century as well as fragile flower drawings and still lifes (e.g. “The bowl of cherries” by G. Garzoni, see below) were among the treasure. It’s worth taking a virtual stroll around the Archiv für Kunst und Geschichte!
