1. Title: More than the sum of its parts (published 21 Sep 2009)

    Content is King, and Kings can be demanding. Especially if they have to edit and design elaborate visual substance for magazines and books while juggling projects whether it be creating movie posters, typography, photography and corporate identity or logo design. Berlin-based designer and artful thinker Mario Lombardo has managed to do exactly this, but exceptionally, for over a decade now. Having established a reputation as one of Germany’s leading designers and editors, Mario is difficult to nail down but easy to rely upon when it comes to everything visual that needs a makeover or creation from scratch. Watch for yourself, to see how this designer extraordinaire works and so graciously pulls another rabbit out of his hat.

  2. Heavy metal is a cultural phenomenon that unites its fans across borders, generations, genders, religions, and social classes. Photographer Jörg Brüggemann traveled to Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Egypt, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Switzerland and the USA to shoot pictures of heavy metal fans for his Gestalten-published Metalheads:The Global Brotherhood. He told us all about the globalization of heavy metal, the fine line between being a fan and keeping the distance and headbanging women in Egypt.

    This latest Gestalten.tv will surely work up your appetite for our forthcoming exhibition at Gestalten Space. Accompanying the release of the book and featuring a live performance by SUN WORSHIP (black metal from Berlin) with Jörg Brüggemann in attendance, the show presents vivid images that capture the lives and passion of heavy metal fans from around the world.

  3. When former art publisher Christoph Keller stumbled upon sleepy Stählemühle, an old dormant mill turned schnapps distillery, he took upon the task of bringing it back to life. The Aqua Vitae fruit brandies produced in small, high-quality batches have received over 170 international awards including "Brandy of the Year 2011." Alongside Stählemühle, he additionally distills Monkey 47, named after its 47 different ingredients, with his companion Alexander Stein of Black Forest Distillers under their second label Schwarzwald Dry Gin, also awarded “Best Gin in the World” at the 2011 International Wine and Spirit Competition in London. We visited the master distiller to learn all about the ancient, alchemical science of distilling, the most exotic and obscure fruits imaginable, and to see how such a sustainable and organic operation can be achieved on a small farm with a limited amount of land, a lot of know-how, and the work of four hands.

  4. Aram Bartholl’s work explores the power structures, the social systems, the cultural innovations, the inner dynamics, the languages, and the products that are shaping our age. The Berlin-based artist, whose first monograph Aram Bartholl: The Speed Book is published by Gestalten, creates savvy experiments with transitions from the virtual to the physical like USB sticks embedded into walls, buildings, and curbs; giant real-life versions of Google's red map markers positioned in public spaces; and portraits generated from image search results. We met him for a Gestalten.tv interview to discuss what he refers to as his "self-created twilight zone."

  5. To describe Henrik Vibskov as merely a fashion designer would be a vast understatement. As an artist, passionate musician, innovative stage designer, and head of his trendsetting eponymous fashion label he is at the vanguard of a new generation of creative multi-taskers. Gestalten.tv visited him in his Copenhagen studio for a chat about music, colors, the first comprehensive monograph of his remarkably versatile creative vision and (not) being your typical Scandinavian designer.
