The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.


Tube Radios, Design Classics, Internet Radio

Radio initially developed into a mass medium in the early twentieth century. Designing radio devices rapidly became an important task for prominent international designers. The catalogue accompanying the eponymous exhibition at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst (Museum of Applied Arts) in Cologne traces the path of the radio up to the present day — from pure components and wooden boxes, “cathedrals” and “skyscrapers”, to cult design objects and opulent music cabinets, all the way to fun miniature devices. At the same time, the catalogue is also the museum’s twenty-first inventory and the first to provide a complete survey of its extensive collection of radios.
