“Quirmbach has been designing books for contemporary artists and institutions since 1995, when as a student of communication design in Wuppertal, she produced her first catalogue for collaborative artists Walter Dahn and Philip Pocock. In Cologne in the 1990s and 2000s, Yvonne was met with the ideal conditions for an emerging designer—her proximity to the publisher and bookseller Walther König, the galleries Monika Sprüth and Daniel Buchholz, and the Museum Ludwig all contributed to her developing sensibility. Among this milieu she sparked early collaboration and friendship with artists such as Rosemarie Trockel, Matti Braun, Walter Dahn, Monika Baer, Cosima von Bonin, Manfred Pernice, and others, all of whom shaped her work and her methods of working.” Source
Together with Jörn Bötnagel she founded the gallery BQ: “Yvonne Quirmbach was still studying graphic design, and Jörn Bötnagel had just taken a job at Monika Sprüth’s gallery. In 1998, a small space—the porter’s lodge—became available in the rear courtyard of the Sprüth Gallery. It became the BQ project space. In 2000, BQ participated in their first art fair, Art Cologne. In 2002, they opened their first gallery space in a small store on Jülicher Strasse in Cologne. A year later, BQ was invited to take part in Art Basel. They used the opportunities that these fairs offered in their own unique way: as “large solo exhibitions.” After all, the booths often had more floor space than their gallery. The gallery has been situated in Berlin since 2009 and on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz since 2011.” Source

Dies sind besonders schöne Bischofsberger Anzeigen.
Luigi Ghirri (1943–1992) spent his working life in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.
In 1978 Luigi Ghirri published Kodachrome, a book of his photographs that touches on many of the subjects that defined his career, including windows, billboards, murals, and other sites where, as he put it, “the world of signs merges with the physical world.” Ghirri wrote eloquently about the power of the image in contemporary life, especially in relation to photography: “Beyond all critical and intellectual explanations, beyond all negative aspects it might possess, photography is, I think, a formidable visual language for fostering this desire for the infinite that inhabits each of us.” Source
User comment: “The card caught my eye with it’s impassivity. The font is more appropriate for a gravestone. As I moved trough the exhibition, I saw the exact same card again but in a different place. I thought it was a double and went back to where I first saw the card but it was not there! Did I see the card before I actually saw it? Was it following me? Now I am totally creeped out.” Lisa di Donato

User Beitrag: “Kenne diese Ausstellung nur als “Mythos”. Der Flyer ist in bester Weise irreführend und zwei CI-Styles werden vermengt – das CI der Galerie und das des Restaurants. Flyer funktioniert buchstäblich als Annonce für das was in der Ausstellung zu sehen sein wird: Die Replikation der Wandbemalung der Kronenhalle in der Galerie nebenan.” Arthur
