In this episode: photographer Pierre Winther, discovering the fairy tale qualities of Sweden, British artist Slinkachu, environmentally friendly bikes, and Frankfurt's Städel Museum is celebrating its 200th anniversary
Städel Museum’s On-Line Tour
On it's 200th anniversary, the Städel (Staedel) Museum in Frankfurt am Main is looking ahead rather than back: it's making itself accessible online through a digital extension. Visitors can now virtually visit the museum! Euromaxx finds out the details.
Miniature Street Art
British Artist Slinkachu has made a name for himself with his tiny, charming works of art, known as Little People. He puts them in public places throughout the city, photographs the mini-scenarios and then leaves them there, for the lucky passerby to discover! A new exhibition of his photos in London is entitled "Miniaturesque".
The Bicycle as a Design Statement
The bicycle is no longer just a mode of transportation, but also a style statement and a way of life. Now, environmentally friendly bikes made of renewable materials like bamboo or wood, or bikes out of recycled auto-parts are making inroads! Industrial designer and boat-builder Jan Gunneweg makes exclusive bikes out of walnut wood costing up to 16,000 Euros!
Fairy Tale Sweden
Småland in southern Sweden is a region of unspoiled nature and traditionally painted wooden houses. It is famous for its hand-blown glass and story-telling. This is where children's book author Astrid Lindgren grew up. Join us for a magical journey through Småland.
Photographer Pierre Winther
We report on Danish photographer Pierre Winther, one of the world’s top contemporary commercial photographers. His works are often larger than life. He has just published a new collection of his works called Nothing Beats Reality. He seldom gives interviews, but he made an exception in our case.
