Interview: Hopea

I’m spending the holidays in Canada, so while I was in the neighbourhood, I stopped by my friend Cosima’s studio, where she runs her new project Hopea, an online shop which works as a sort of archive for Nordic and Canadian modernist jewelry from 1960-1975 specifically. I took a few shots of the pieces and we talked about her inspirations for Hopea (which is Finnish for silver), as well as the history behind some of the forgotten designers.

I finished my studies, so you get presents!

Last week, I finally handed in my M.A. thesis. Which means my time being a student of art history and Japenese studies came to an end. It took me one year to finish my exams and the thesis, and this had a seriously negative effect on this blog, which you might have noticed.

Art in Berlin: Goodyn Green

Goodyn Green is a photographer who has recently self-published her first photobook, The Catalog, a collection of female nudes featuring queer women whose poses reference gay men’s magazines. Here she is in Kreuzberg’s The Fab Lab, where her photos are currently on display. A short interview follows, along with some of her work, which is probably NSFW (depending on where you work, that is).
