Heimo Zobernig is one of the most interesting graphic designer of the art world, and beyond. He is also a brilliant artist and an unconventional and clearheaded thinker. Denys Zacharopoulos is an art historian and theorist. He was a curator, amongst others, at the 48th Biennale in Venice and documenta IX in Kassel, and an influential curator and writer in the 1990s. Here is a interview with Zacharopoulos.

In the early 90s the invitation cards of Zurichs legendary Galerie Walcheturm (run by Eva Presenhuber) showed the gallery space and its visitors instead of artworks or exhibitions. These invitations cards were intriguing and made us happy. It felt like a different way of doing things and it was. All pictures were taken by Franziska & Bruno Mancia (FBM Studio, see their book documenting their practice here)
