Does This Happen to Everyone? featured on Publishers Weekly. "Taking an empathetic and respectful approach to sex education, Von Hollenben and Helms blend humor, factual information, and candid advice. A valuable resource that normalizes and affirms sexuality while suggesting that puberty is a time of both physical and intellectual growth.”
Tattoing is one of the world's most ancient artforms and craftsmanships. A long term exhibition at Winterthur's Gewerbemuseum aims at exploring both traditions and innovations of this cultural technique.
Tattoos are forever, though they remind us of our limited lifetime. They tell stories, shape identities and mark social affiliation. In the western world, tattoos have undergone a long journey from sub-culture to mainstream and back. Gestalten's book Forever proofs that over the last few years, new influences from the realms of art, fashion, traditional tattoo art, and visual culture have given rise to a dynamic tattoo scene—a new underground, which is as innovative, diverse, inspiring, and controversial as the motifs it creates.
The Gewerbemuseum in Winterthur has invited a number of artists who all focus differently on the topic of body art and tattos, among them are: Emanuelle Antille (CH) / Masahiko Adachi (JP) / Cookie Bros (NL) / Imogen Cunningham (USA) / Wim Delvoye (BEL) / Chris Eckert (USA) / Goran Galić & Gian-Reto Gredig (CH) / Happypets (CH) / Herbert Hoffmann (DE/CH) / Mario Marchisella (CH) / Enrique Marty (ESP) / The Rich Mingins Collection (GB) / Becky Nunes (NZ) / Jens Uwe Parkitny (DE) / Klaus Pichler (AUT) / Christian Poveda (FR) / Rodolphe Archibald Reiss (DE/CH) / Fumie Sasabuchi (JP) / Santiago Sierra (ESP) / Aroon Thaewchatturat (THA) / Timm Ulrichs (DE) / Artur Żmijewski (POL), and more.
