  2. Holm Friebe established the term „digital boheme“ and probably he just fits into the category. As chief executive at „Zentrale Intelligenz Agentur“ (Central Intelligence Agency) he brings project conception and analyzing to a whole new creative level.

  4. From graffiti to fame: André Saraiva or his alter ego Mr. A doesn’t really need an introduction.

The Avant/Garde Diaries is a digital interview magazine that documents personal views on the avant-garde.
Rather than labeling people avant-garde, we try to see through the eyes of people, who we admire for what they do. For each article we ask contributors from the creative field to introduce someone or something they consider to be ahead of time and explain why. The result will be a compendium of various, very personal perspectives that disclose new ways of thinking and spread inspiration.
