Olaf Breuning is known for his impressive pictorial worlds and his ironic views on a reality that is shaped by the media. His photographs, videos, drawings and installations make use of a shared visual language and mix symbols from the world of pop and the media with icons of high culture. Somewhere between humour and a painful seriousness, they make us aware of our consumerism, Western stereotypes and gender clichés and analyse the relationship between art and kitsch, reality and illusion, authenticity and artificiality. - NFW Forum, Dusseldorf

In his new book Time of Nothing, Jim Mangan looks at the transforming relationships between humans and earth in this abstract series. In 2011 and 2012 the artist explored the entire Great Salt Lake including its solar evaporation ponds from a single engine Cessna plane. By composing each image in a way that flattens the landscape, Mangan not only provides the audience with a non-conventional view, but also emphasizes the many colorful layers that exist along with the subtle presentation of man's ever so invading footprint.
