The small Dutch city of Utrecht is receiving worldwide attention this weekend as its charming canals and cobbled corridors play host to Le Grand Départ: the launch of the Tour de France, which hits the road on Saturday.

Recently, a “Stereotypes of the Netherlands” map made its rounds on the Internet, describing how the Dutch conceptualize their small country’s terrain. Down south, in the middle of Brabant’s “Catholic Carnival Country,” a short distance from “Dumb People, Great Beer” (apologies, Belgium), is the technological oasis of “Philipstown,” so named for the diversified technology mega-corporation. If the city is known for innovation in technology... [more]

Luftwerk will have an installation at the Mies va... [more]
For some reason, in the wake of men creating darkness, they also make art: Christ gets crucified, someone paints a scene of it. War with the Japanese, a handmade game called “Kill the Jap.” Stalin shaves off and effectively enslaves a solid percentage of Russian society in order to hoist industrialization upon its weary shoulders—a porcelain plate, so you can eat off his face.
Such examples are the art and design found at Bummer, a small, eccentric exhibition on view at the Wolfsonian-FIU... [more]
