PISTOIA “From the quietest streets to the busy market day, from the city underground to the top of its mountains; with my travelling mindset I will share some of my beautiful ‘CCTravel’ moments around Pistoia with you.” – Here is the story by Teija Vaittinen, Berlin-based theatre artist from Finland. #CCTravellers2017

SEETIES & WOMEN From Venus de Milo to Kim Kardashian in a video directed by Anna Ginsburg (London) for CNN that examines beauty through the ages.
NEW YORK It took three months of calculations to build this reduced model of the Manhattan district, using old and broken electronic parts. Who made this work? Zayd Menk, apparently a very young artist, a 17-year-old student who lives in Zimbabwe. He made this artwork for his school art project.
TANKWA TOWN In the semidesert Karoo – halfway along the R355, a 250km untarred road between Calvinia and Ceres in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa (that means on the longest stretch in the country without petrol stations, nearby assistance, phone signal) – there is a magic place: a temporary city that every year since 2007 appears and disappears in just one week.
PARIS without its Tour Eiffel. Impossible even to imagine, today. But if some French intellectuals would have won their battle, the Iron Lady (Dame de Fer) might have survived for maybe just twenty years or maybe less. The French originally hated it. If not all, certainly an important group of high-profile artists, thinkers and creatives who signed a petition to protest against the tower during its construction. They expressed all their hate towards this “useless” and “monstrous” monument with a love letter to their City of Lights (Ville Lumière) and finesse, published on Valentine’s Day 1887.
SEETIES & THE UNIVERSE. “On the scale of a galaxy, let alone the universe, we’re smaller than we can readily comprehend, but we do have the capacity to wonder, to question, to explore, to investigate, and to imagine. So the next time you stand gazing up at the night sky, take a moment to think about the enormity of what is beyond your vision, out in the dark spaces between the stars.”
SEETIES The international photography print publication Latent Image Magazine is collecting visual stories for their spring 2018 issue. Deadline: 1st March!
SEETIES The 19th edition of this grand event – hosted by Russia in Sochi Olympic Park, last October 2017 – has brought together about 20.000 young international delegates from 185 countries. Do you know the (hi)story of this huge Festival?

PALERMO “Why her? Why give her a space? Some people thought I was looking for a space to show my photos but here you won’t see my works. The ambition is much higher. I want to see others grow, I want to discover talents and cultivate them. And so what you will see won’t be my photos but, near the door of my studio, a red neon made by Riccardo Gueci: picchì idda?”
