London is the new edition of the London by Gian Butturini of 1969. In June 1969, Butturini travelled to London and was instantly captivated by the dynamics of the 'Swinging City': a decade defined by social revolution, freedom of expression and political controversy. Picking up a camera for the first time, he was drawn to the immediacy of the photographic medium that allowed him to create images through a direct encounter with the world, without the need for preliminary drawings or predetermined parameters - a way of working that was radically different from his design work. The resulting black and white photographs testify to Butturini's fascination with the darker side of London - the 'true, bare' version of the city belonging to the disenfranchised, destitute and marginalized rather than the City's bowler hats or the changing of the guards that belonged to the realm of tourism. Disillusionment prevails in the gritty images, which evoke not only the atmosphere in the capital in the late 1960s but also Butturini's own disenchantment with social injustice and discrimination. It all began in Victoria Station when he saw a young man staggering by with a syringe embedded in a vein. The Tube, pubs and streets were the stage of a frenzied humanity unseen by the tourists, who were wooed by Piccadilly and Carnaby Street, and by the Barnum Circus of showcases. Butturini recorded shots of everyday life full of pain and sarcasm, but also of joy and lyricism: two old people lying down and hugging each other on a lawn, the hippies, the fashionable young women, the poor homeless, coloured people often relegated to the humblest places, the pacifist demonstrations, the improvised orators at Speakers' Corner. There was nothing stereotyped, but plenty of irony, a focus on authenticity and a careful selection of images.

Magnum photographer Martin Parr is a key figure in the worlds of photography and contemporary art. He has been an avid postcard collector for twenty years and in Langweilige Postkarten he presents the pride of his 'boring' collection: 160 postcards from Germany that take you on a daringly dull tour of its autobahns, airports, hotels, factories, shops, border posts, tower blocks and new towns.Presented without commentary or introduction of any kind, and with the original captions, the postcards are allowed to speak for themselves. They were all made before German reunification and provide fascinating and hilarious insights into German social and architectural values between the 1950s and 1980s. The two nations' special relationship with concrete and the functional modernist block is nostalgically and repetitiously celebrated in postcard after postcard, and the volume provides a revealing context for consideration of the work of contemporary German art and landscape photographers.

Pop Art is widely regarded as the most significant artistic movement since 1945. Reflecting on the cult of celebrity, commodity fetishism and media reproduction that permeated everyday life in the postwar era, Pop Art continues to shape our society's cultural self-understanding to this day. A central characteristic of Pop Art was the dialogue between design and art, which is now being explored in 'Pop Art Design' at the Vitra Design Museum as the first-ever comprehensive exhibition on the topic. Works by such artists as Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Roy Lichtenstein or Judy Chicago are paired with design objects by Charles Eames, George Nelson, Achille Castiglioni and Ettore Sottsass. The exhibition is supplemented with a multitude of further exhibits, such as album covers, magazines, films and photos of contemporary interiors.0Exhibition: Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany (13.10.2012-3.2.2013).

Das Raumparadigma in den Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften

Warum reden alle vom Raum? Ist die Zeit der wissenschaftlichen Vorherrschaft der Zeit vorüber? Was tritt unter den Bedingungen der Globalisierung an die Stelle eines schwächelnden Fortschritts- und Entwicklungsparadigmas? Wenn mittlerweile fast alle Disziplinen in den Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften damit beschäftigt sind, ihre Diskurse zu »verräumlichen«, ist dann die Rede von einem »Spatial Turn« angemessen? Diese Anthologie leistet zweierlei: Zum ersten Mal erscheint auf dem deutschen Buchmarkt eine fächerübergreifende Anthologie zum Spatial Turn und zum ersten Mal findet eine Diskussion auch unter Beteiligung der Geographen statt - jenen »Raumspezialisten«, die sich in jüngster Zeit als scharfe Kritiker der fächerübergreifenden Raumkonjunktur profiliert haben.
