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.


Design Istanbul Tasarımı
If there is one expression that describes Istanbul, then it is the “dancing city”: loud and impetuous, raw and wild, passionate and ecstatic. These characteristics shape the young designers of the city and the ideas with which they respond to an internationally dominated design industry.
For the first time, this book presents a comprehensive view of Istanbul’s aspiring and incredibly exciting, but as yet relatively unknown, design scene. Texts and images from over thirty leading designers are complimented by in-depth essays and documentation on the cultural context of Istanbul.
