Legendary artist Christo is working on his new project on Lake Iseo in northern Italy. A group of Swiss artists are giving the football sticker a creative makeover. And: a rollercoaster restaurant in the city of Vienna.

Football meets art
The’Tschutti Heftli’ from Switzerland is the alternative to the famous Panini football stickers collectors album. 24 artists have beautifully created the portraits of the players for the 2016 European Championship.
Maurice Mikkers' tears

Vienna's rollercoaster restaurant

2016 Jazzfest Bonn
