Furtwängler and Shostakovich: Bearing Witness in Wartime

Books continue to be written about what it was like to live in Germany under Hitler. I wonder if any of the authors have auditioned Wilhelm Furtwängler’s wartime broadcasts with the Berlin Philharmonic. They should – and also ponder a kindred question: the function of culture in the life of a nation. – Joseph Horowitz

German-Designed Domestic Underground Storage Elevator System and Garbage Hideaway

If you've ever visited Germany you know that they love order, revere engineering, and take pride in keeping tidy homes. As a prime example of this, check out German manufacturer Wöhr's Underground Waste Lift, which lets you store untidy lawn equipment, garbage and recycling bins, and the odds and ends you don't want cluttering up your lawn, driveway or garage.The bi-level solution lets you stop the lift at either of the two levels, of course. I must say, I'm a sucker for crisp German copy: "The ...

Radha Mistry's Job at Autodesk is to Explore and Provoke Possible Futures

For this year's Core77 Design Awards, we're conducting in-depth interviews with some of our 2020 jury captains to get in a glimpse into their creative minds and to hear more about what they'll be looking for in this year's awards submissions.

Photos of the Week - Tokyo, Germany and California

Photos of the Week - Tokyo, Germany and California abduzeedoFeb 25, 2020 A couple of weeks ago I shared some photos I took last year. The main goal was, one, to share high resolution images, and two, to create an incentive for me to take more photos.

So for this post I would love to show...

BMW Concept i4, the ICE-mimicking EV, Prepares for Debut

If you’ve taken stock of the latest electric vehicles coming out of Germany, you’ll notice a clear trend: they’re not futuristic machines.

The same can be said […] The post BMW Concept i4, the ICE-mimicking EV, Prepares for Debut appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

How Pianist Igor Levit Hacked The Attention Economy And Made Himself Into A ‘Thought Leader’

“Levit’s career is a stark demonstration of the dissolving boundaries between art and commerce, journalism and public relations, particularly in Germany. … He is a friend to media personalities and politicians. Journalists ask his opinion on climate change, the rise of the far right, books, the ideal body weight. He works with artists and comedians, performs at the Bundestag in Berlin and for the Greens. In England, he’s enraged Brexiteers; in the U.S., he’s ‘The Pianist of the Resistance.'” Hi...

The Royal Shakespeare Company Hires Its First Spanish Actor

David Luque, a 47-year-old actor from Madrid, has been working steadily in theatre for decades, starting when he was a student using the EU’s programs to study in Germany. But really, right as Brexit hits? He says, “The RSC is in an opening moment, breaking old schemes to try to reflect on the stage the diversity. …  It may seem paradoxical at this time when Brexit has just taken place, although perhaps it is precisely the reaction of the art world.” – El País (Spain)

The Rich History of Interior Design Gets Its Due in a New Exhibit at the Vitra Design Museum

The world certainly doesn't suffer from a shortage of magazines, coffee table books, and TV programs dedicated to the domestic interior, but compared to other design disciplines, interior design has long lacked a serious discourse around it. Curators at Germany's Vitra Design Museum are aiming to rectify that with a new exhibition, Home Stories. Where our Instagram feeds are clogged with much of the same imagery and sources of inspiration, the exhibition aims to show the rich evolution of interi...
