CONTEMPORARY MAELSTROMS

 

In the postmodern white waters a seemingly paradoxical option emerges all of a sudden from the depths of mind which commands to insist vividly on the rule of vague exceptions and while following this intuitive desire to drift away on the waves of a final eternal ambition.

Only a little bit later in the sphere of phantastic probabilities, the restless vagabond approaches subsequently the all penetrating net with speed of light where cause and effect of intentions are mututally eliminating and reversing themselves in a material torrent of final escape.

 

BOHEMIAN STREET-DREAMS

Our short summer-trip led us finally to old cities of Bohemia on our way back home to Berlin. So we have  stayed finally at Budweis and Cesky Krumlov for a night and a day, enough time for collecting some interesting and nice street-impressions while loafing through these towns.

Egon Schiele, Stadtende (Häuserbogen III), 1913

Hardly any other place inspired Egon Schiele as much as Cesky Krumlov, one of the most beautiful Renaissance cities in Europe and an architectural jewel of first order. Despite the really too many tourists today, you still find very quiet and inspiring places in the city or optionally just make a surprising rafting tour on  Vitava river around the beautiful and impressive city. 

Vitava River is usually a calm place for rafting, but there are also some rapids around Cesky Krumlov which require a little bit of care in order to avoid an unintended bath in the cool waters

ABANDONED LOWER BAVARIA, GERMANY

Bavaria is one of the richest German regions lying in the very South of the country. Hence, cities and villages usually look just perfectly arranged and very tidy. So I was really happy to find in direct neighbourhood of such proper order in the old city of Dingolfing at Lower Bavaria something else: an amazing rotten site simply forgotten by the course of time and modern history.

 

URBAN ART HALL, BERLIN (2)

Unfortunately the project URBAN ART HALL does exist no longer here in Berlin, the former postal distribution hall will now be demolished and some new building erected soon. These here are some of the last impressions inside and outside the crazy and creative hall captured by mid of July 2019. Again it was very difficult to make a photo selection due to the many stunning works and mindful creations.

PYONGYANG RAILWAY MUSEUM BY THE RAMBLING WOMBAT

Being a fan of all things railway I greatly looked forward to visiting this museum and, being in North Korea, I knew it would have that something extra. It did not disappoint.  …

The museum focuses on the country’s railway construction projects and how they were influenced/ directed by Kim Jong-il and, to a lesser extent, Kim Il-sung. …
