Staged in Berlin’s Kupferstichkabinett, the new exhibition “Women, Bulls, Old Masters” is a must-see for anyone who think to know the Spanish master: Pablo Picasso.
In the video, contemporary artist Jonas Burgert and curator Anita Beloubek-Hammer have shared their personal views on Picasso with us to celebrate this benchmark release: “There’s one time when every artist looks at Picasso again.” As a visual dialogue about one of the most powerful and fearless pioneers of creative expression, we highly recommend this short film to all artists and non-artists alike.
Gestalten is also honored to release the book “Women, Bullfights, Old Masters” to accompany this major exhibition. Ranging from black and white to colorful, the artwork represents his various styles from classic to cubistic to surrealistic. The publication not only examines Picasso’s work in a historical context, but also reevaluates it from a contemporary point of view.

In a world of uniformity and globalized styles, only some cultivated gentlemen retain their independence over the way they dress and live. Gestalten's new book "I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman" with photographs by Rose Callahan and texts by Nathaniel "Natty" Adams, was recently launched at the bespoke gentleman's tailor Gieves & Hawkes, No. 1 Savile Row London. The book documents the well-kept lives of 57 protagonists of contemporary dandyism with a keen yet empathic eye.
Gestalten.tv flew to Brighton, London, and New York to meet with Natty and Rose, as well as a few of the exquisite modern gentlemen featured in the book, to learn about their styles, attitudes, and philosophies. Together, they help us to explore contemporary dandyism as a rebellious attitude and obsessive calling that can be cultivated on any budget. Watch the video here.

Together, they explain a slice of the world.
