Jaka jest polska sztuka współczesna? Czy widać w niej próby odcięcia się od trudnej przeszłości? Czy artyści nadążają za najnowszymi trendami światowymi czy raczej stawiają na indywidualność? Album Polish!, przedstawiając prace najbardziej cenionych polskich artystów młodego pokolenia, daje nam odpowiedź na te pytania. Udowadnia, że polska sztuka współczesna rozwija się, zaskakuje i bawi się konwencjami. To nie samo malarstwo, ale też projekcje wideo, instalacje, filmy, a nade wszystko performance.

Dostępność: na zamówienie How might an architect design a building whose context hasn't yet been determined? Digital Media City is a new urban quarter in Seoul, zoned to grow up between the airport and the city center. But it's still on the drawing board: the site for the Barkow Leibinger project documented here was a lone parcel of land diagonally across from a new park. Given their uncertainty about neighboring structures, Frank Barkow and Regine Leibinger equipped theirs with the ability to kaleidoscopically reflect its surroundings--whatever they turn out to be--in a dimensional, folded glass facade.
Dostępność: na zamówienie Hugo Alvar Henrik Aalto (1898-1976), the most important Finnish architect of the twentieth century, was also one of the most noteworthy modern furniture designers. His bentwood Paimio Chair is regarded along with comparable seating furniture by Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Charles Eames as one of the incunabula of twentieth-century design.

Dostępność: na zamówienie In 1929 Barcelona was host to the World Arts Fair, an international architecture and design exposition attended by members of the Spanish royalty and many senior European government officials. It was an occasion for cultural grandstanding, an opportunity for countries to parade their native talent. So when the German government approached Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) to design a pavilion, he was left in no doubt as to their expectations--and he met them, erecting an ultra-modern creation in glass, steel and four types of marble.
