From the architect. The musical society of zwettl was founded in the year 1887. Its hitherto existing rehearsal space in the attic storey of the municipal office did neither answer to the musical society’s supraregional importance, nor to acoustic requirements. Transferring the music society frees space in the existing building for the increasing number of administration tasks. The new building’s positioning frames the hitherto undefined place and presents an effective enhancement of the municipality’s entrance situation. Moreover, it offers the possibility for concerts of the musical society right next to the rehearsal space. With its contemporary, reduced cubical style the new building forms an intentional counterpoint to the adjacent municipality. For illumination of the ground floor, the structure floats on a circumferential window belt. The façade design with gold-coloured diamond-shaped aluminium composite panels was derived from brass instruments and the pattern of the musical society’s uniforms. By providing a new building for its musical society, the municipality of zwettl signals the society’s importance not only for the town itself, but also beyond. Link.

” I am a painter in oils in the classical tradition, trained in Europe at the Florence Academy of Art. I have always been fascinated with narrative and the human aspect of painting, be it expressed in figures and portraits, in traditional or modern themes, or still-lifes that imply a character who is temporarily absent from the scene.” – Kendric Tonn

Jason Seiler began his professional career in a rather unorthodox way. After getting in trouble for drawing parodies of his history teacher in high school, Jason’s quick-thinking principle hired him to draw caricatures of different faculty members. A professional artist was born. Jason went on to study fine art illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago for two years before beginning his professional work in earnest. Jason’s illustrations and paintings have been featured as covers and interior pieces for Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Utne Reader, TIME, The New Yorker, Der Spiegel, Business Week, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Weekly Standard, MAD magazine, GOLF Digest, AD WEEK, KING magazine, Revolver, Guitar Player, The Village Voice, Penguin Group, Disney, The New York Observer, New Line Cinema, Universal Pictures, Aardman Animation, and Sony Image, among others. Jason also worked as a character designer on Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, helping to create such characters as the Red Queen, the Tweedles, the Bandersnatch and more.

Justine Khamara

 photo tumblr_n6r8635yyR1qbcporo3_500_zps64b256d4.jpg

Justine Khamara lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. In 2003 she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from the Victorian College of the Arts. Khamara’s practice to date has sought to disrupt photography’s smooth, two-dimensional surfaces by building sculptures and collages entirely out of photographs. A flat image, usually figurative, is transformed either by slicing directly into the photographic skin and pulling features into three dimensional form, or by taking multiple shots of a single subject which are then collaged. Often evoking biological processes of replication while also engaging with notions of self-representaiton in an era of instant, endlessly generative (re)productions technologies, her work is best understood as a deeply psychological response to contemporary notions of being (in the existentialist sense).
