We always enjoy old illustrations and are always so fascinated by humor and comics from different periods. Franz Wacik was an Austrian artist who was especially devoted to children and young adult book illustrations. This particular series of illustrations were for the humor magazine Die Muskete and circa 1906-1911.

We have been huge fans of Vienna-based artist Moussa Kone for years, and haven't checked in with him since we last featured him in print in late 2011. Influenced by 19th Century artist and poet Aubrey Beardsley, and founder of Vienna art collective Kunstwerft, Kone is known for incredibly cinematic detail, and like a magician, creates illusions and metaphors in each work.

There are almost countless texts, books, and exhibition catalogues about Richard Prince (born 1949), as well as texts he himself has authored not only for his own publications but also those of other artists. Gaining any overview of his exhibition activities proves likewise a challenge, and he was already at the beginning of his career being given solo shows in important international museums. He is known, not least, for the astronomical prices his works command on the art market.

Bus stops are rather mundane, and turning them into public art projects is something cities have done for years to make them more appealing. Mostly, they just become advertisement centers for upcoming summer blockbusters. In Krumbach, Austia, a selection of renowned international architects turned 7 bus stops into mini-design projects. Some bizarre, some functional, some just a nice place to sit and look at a field.

The 2,500 square meter space is dedicated for changing contemporary art exhibitions, functions and events.
