Tom of Finland Darkroom exhibition photography art Val Marti

Wars, for all their horrors, have been known to foster a sense of brotherhood among the men who fight in them. This was certainly the case with Tom of Finland – born Touko Laaksonen (1920–1991) – who was conscripted to serve in the Finnish Army during World War II and rose to become a lieutenant, beloved by his platoon for treating them with kindness and respect. The son of a country choral master, Tom seized the opportunity to strengthen the bond between his men and createdhellip;

The Timeless Style of Dawoud Bey’s Street Portraits

Dawoud Bey. ‘A Shirtless Young Man’, Brooklyn, NY 1988, from

Dawoud Bey has been photographing marginalised Americans for over four decades. His majestic portraits, which tend to be large-scale and formally structured, are mostly centred on the country’s Black population. For Bey, this focus is instinctual: the Queens-born photographer is driven by an urge to capture the everyday Americans he saw growing up, who he believed were misrepresented in the mainstream media. His work aims to defy stereotypes, adding complexity, nuance andhellip;

Hans Ulrich Obrist Interviews Celebrated Chinese Author Can Xue

Purple Perilla by Can Xue

Lauded by Susan Sontag as the Chinese author most deserving of the Nobel Prize, Can Xue is a notorious autodidact, steeped in the works of Borges, Kafka, and Calvino. Can xue, a pseudonym, means “stubborn snow” – urban slush that refuses to melt, or the pure-white caps of mountain peaks. As a writer, Can Xue is both: grounded and exalted by a commitment to experimentation. Her formal education ended at 13 when her father was interned in a labour camp during thehellip;

Institut für Hygiene und Mikrobiologie, Freie Univ

Vulnerability is a term unlikely to appear in the visual language of Brutalist architecture, but as demonstrated by the much-mourned 2019 demolition of London’s iconic Welbeck Street car park, the fragility of an unlisted building’s position in claustrophobic urban landscapes is now impossible to miss. While Berlin is not widely synonymous with Brutalist monuments, Blue Crow Media’s new <ahellip;
