"Lo duca e io per quel cammino ascoso intrammo a ritornar nel chiaro mondo;e sanza cura aver d’alcun riposo,
salimmo sù, el primo e io secondo,tanto ch’i’ vidi de le cose belleche porta ’l ciel, per un pertugio tondo.

E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle.”
Divina Commedia, Inferno - Canto XXXIV

"Lo duca e io per quel cammino ascoso 
intrammo a ritornar nel chiaro mondo;
e sanza cura aver d’alcun riposo,

salimmo sù, el primo e io secondo,
tanto ch’i’ vidi de le cose belle
che porta ’l ciel, per un pertugio tondo.

E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle.”

Divina Commedia, Inferno - Canto XXXIV

Poi giri l’angolo e all’improvviso cosa vedi… solo la sede di Microsoft… :D

"A l’alta fantasia qui mancò possa; ma già volgeva il mio disio e ‘l velle, sì come rota ch’igualmente è mossa, l’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle”.

In tria tempora vita dividitur: quod fuit, quod est, quod futurum est. Ex his quod agimus breve est, quod acturi sumus dubium, quod egimus certum.

Gallery Hopping: Berlin / Hollywood
This week, we’re heading to Berlin, the mecca of the European contemporary art scene, to visit Dittrich & Schlechtriem. Opening on Thursday is First Works, the first exhibition for the fictional artist collective, Fresh White. French artist, Xavier Stentz is the man behind this pseudo artist group. The sole focus of the show is the famous and mass appropriated HOLLYWOOD sign. This exhibition explores the significance of the HOLLYWOOD sign and all of its many cultural reverberations. Not only that, the exhibition forms only a small slice of an ongoing project surrounding the actual sign. Underlying this entire exhibition is the ultimate goal to repaint the sign altogether, which will take place at the projects end. For now, the three part show, provides a detailed survey of the sign’s history and symbolic status as an emblem of American culture. This show should not be missed!
We would be remiss not to mention these other great shows opening this week!
