Since its beginnings Ken Schluchtmann is the visual messenger of the Olympus Perspective Playground. The integrated spatial communication campaign for the optical products of Olympus has started in 2013 and created more than 12 playgrounds and a whole “PhotoArtPath” (Zingst) with over 300,000 visitors in Germany, France, The Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland: one of the most successful marketing strategies of Olympus.

Curated by Regina Tetens with ambient installations of Numen/For use, Humatic, Doering/Lauber, Haruka Kojin, Martin Butler, schnellebuntebilder, Sibylle Oellerich and Katharina Göbel – all seen here through the lense of Ken Schluchtmanns well as the newly opened Olympus Fotokunstpfad Zingst in the famous holiday location at the Baltic Sea in Germany. Zingst is on the move to change in an open air exhibition space for international contemporary art inviting the visitors to interact thanks to the means of photography. New perspectives to be explored and documented with the help of a camera.

Viva City, BerlinDienstag, 06. Dezember 2016
Creating living spaces that meet the different needs of seniors is one of the great challenges of our times, considering that the population’s average age is increasing and the social structure is also changing.
The “Haus Mattiasgärten” facility of the advita association that provides services and care for the elderly recently opened in the Friedrichshain district in Berlin. It’s a 48-apartment residential building designed by con-tura architekten, with no architectural barriers, where each unit is between 25 and 53 square metres and the facilities include community spaces and “on demand” healthcare on the ground and mezzanine floors writes a whole new chapter for this category of architecture. It was built by developer Kondor Wessels at the entrance of the Volkspark park and near the Vivantes Klinikum hospital.

Opel Paris Motos Show 2016Dienstag, 06. Dezember 2016
The beginning of a new era: at Mondial l’Automobil in Paris Opel has broken with the traditions of the classic booth design and the standard narrative of cars.
Talking about the democratization of E-Mobility Opel presented the electric car Amphera-e with an outstanding duration. Opel welcomed the visitors with a booth dominated by a fairy-tale like silhouette-and-shadow theatre thus underlining the new direction not only of the car industry but also of the visual narrative.
Stralsund MuseumDienstag, 06. Dezember 2016
The oldest museum in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in the Hanseatic City of Stralsund is home to a unique Viking Gold Treasure. The treasure consists of 16 pieces of jewelry made of pure gold, an excellent example of Viking goldsmithery, attributed to the Viking King Harald Bluetooth Gormsson.
Since December 2015 the treasures are displayed as part of the Museum’s permanent collection. The whole exhibition space in the ground floor was designed by architectural firm neo.studio, specialised in exhibition design. The pictures tell about the magic atmosphere created by the award winning creatives who have developed a totally new exhibition concept that emphasizes the mystery around the Viking Gold.
