German master painter, printmaker, engraver, mathematician, and theorist Albrecht Dürer is someone you've probably heard of, we hope. Here, towards the end of the year, we bring it back, not to 2011, but back to the late 15th and early 16th century with these engravings and woodblock prints. Dürer's religious and apocalypse scenes have a gothic nature to them that is timelessly entertaining.

We are hooked on the collage work of Hamburg, Germany-based artist, Kerstin Stephan. She takes vintage materials and compiles works of art, sometimes dense with content and at other times very minimal constructions.

We have seen some great interactive, even public art installations over the past year, but the Smiley Face installation on a tower (Fühlometer: Feel-o-meter), created by Julius von Bismarck, Benjamin Maus, and Richard Wilhelmer is one of the best. Their Fühlometer is fueled by a digital camera on the ground, monitoring the moods of casual passerbys.

The design team of Delphine Buhro and Michael Dreher put together an interesting design throughout the Goldman 25Hours Hotel in Frankfurt, Germany, but nothing is more odd than a men's bathroom where you let yourself go into a faux-Rolling Stones/Pop Art mouth. It would be weird. But kind of fun.

Here are a few opening photos from Revok’s show Triumph and Tragedy that opened over the weekend at Vicious Gallery in Hamburg. It looks as if Revok has been putting the jigsaw to good use in creating these wood collages.

Maybe we shouldn't be so impressed with an artist when we hear about their age, but the fact that Munich, Germany-based photographer Elizaveta Porodina is only 24-years old sort of blows our mind. There are some exquisite shots in here, with original compositions and dreamy scenarios that appear both to be fashion oriented with a bit of subconscious and sexual imagery. NSFW, a few "bare chest" shots after the jump.

In 2 and half days, Other and Saddo completed this large-scale mural in Dresden, Germany. Plenty of great detail to get lost in and one of the biggest murals we have seen these artists work on. Traveling back to the U.S., Other will be showing new work will fellow artist Stinkfish at Brooklynite Gallery in Brooklyn on November 5th.

Gerhard Richter is an extremely diverse artist, known very well for his paintings that vary from photo-realistic speed blurs to large colorful abstractions. This video shot by filmmaker Corinna Belz while spending three years in Richter's Cologne studio working on her film Gerhard Richter Painting is amazing how it reveals the paintings being formed and Richter's unique practice of smearing, scraping, layering, and removing paint to create these large abstract paintings.

We are very big supporters of EVOL's work here at Juxtapoz. We wrote about him in the magazine, and have showcased work on the site before. Seeing his older works in Stavanger, Norway over the past few weeks reminded us how interesting his work is in the context of a normal walk in the city.

Patrick Runte's photography series is actually called Jump N' Run, and features well known, classic video games played on in reality situations. Well, only if you consider Pac-Man costumes in a real maze to be a reality situation.
