The renowned Swiss architecture magazine archithese
promotes critical debate on architectural concepts, projects and buildings. It forges links between architecture, art, philosophy and science. The 20th century produced countless visions of the future – in books, films and drawings. Architecture – or more precisely blueprints of visionary or utopian worlds – played a pivotal role in exemplifying such projections.
Michael Najjar’s work “final mission” was chosen for the cover picture
and the edition features numerous other works from Najjar’s outer space

. On show will be new works by the artist with an extremely intricate interweaving of marks that condense and disperse over the surface, to the point of creating perspectival planes and a total absence of traditional space. The large-scale oils and acrylics on canvas are flanked by works of smaller dimensions that allude to three-dimensionality and that use geometric forms held captive by a reticular painting.

Find the video of the exhibition outer space
by Michael Najjar
on ikono.tv and in Artist of the month
section. Michael Najjar
utilises photography and video to focus on the key elements of our society, one guided and "controlled" by information technology and information. His work is shown in museums, galleries and bienniales around the globe. Najjar demonstrates the potential of photographic images that can make visible what is usually invisible to the human eye. His work visualises what often goes beyond the limits of our perception and reveals what is hidden beneath the surface of what he calls the "telecommunication society".

: a journey through the museum’s collections from 1945 until today. The installation of the show will be unconventional and will juxtapose modern and contemporary art. In this context, Herbert Hamak has the honour of seeing his works side by side with famous paintings by Claude Monet

series, thus relating his use of colour and light to the experiments of the master of Impressionism.
