Bärbel Bold und Ingo Italic sind Letterfriends. Eine langjährige Freundschaft, die in der Zeit der Graffittikunst unter dem Kollektivnamen „Mongomania“ ihren Ursprung fand und heute buchstäblich Früchte in einem 2011 gegründeten “typografischen concept store” in Kreuzberg trägt.

It would be this concept of theft vs. true originality, which resonates so deeply with all artists and designers, that would be at the core of his thought-provoking, beautiful and often amusing look back at some of his most popular work.

Jeder die barocken Irrungen um Tamino, Pamina und Papageno verfolgt. Die Inszenierung an der Komischen Oper Berlin, die Intendant Barrie Kosky gemeinsam mit der britischen Theatertruppe 1927 inszenierte, setzt visuelle Maßstäbe …
