Jan Middendorp blogs for Eye – direct from the ‘pregnant oyster’
The venue is fantastic. Dubbed ‘the pregnant oyster’, the Kongresshalle was a gift from the Americans to (West) Berlin, built in 1956 under the direction of architect Hugh Stubbins. Having collapsed under the optimism of its construction in 1980, it was rebuilt in subsequent years and became the ‘Haus der Kulturen der Welt’, the House of World Cultures.

An exclusive, Web-only Critique by Rick Poynor for the Eye site and blog
This American blog-mag reminds us that obituaries are about lives lived. At a certain point in your life, you find yourself drawn to obituaries, writes Rick Poynor. Your own departure, once so far away and impossible seeming, is now a racing certainty. You are more than half way through and people who were middle-aged when you were young – actors, politicians, TV personalities – are showing up in the obituary pages with sobering regularity.
