If her concept for building an island bridge out of salt in the middle of the Dead Sea becomes a reality, artist Sigalit Landau will have created a symbol for connection and hope in the Middle East

Glasmuseet Ebeltoft’s summer exhibition presents the glass works of Swiss-American power couple Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg. Although the exhibition’s principal medium may be glass, its intentions extend far beyond material and technique.

Celebrating his 80th birthday this autumn, Belgian visual artist Piet Stockmans presents a new publication as well as a new exhibition in the former metal warehouse of the Winterslag coal mine, which coincidentally, is where his studio, Studio Pieter Stockmans, is also located.

On her old wooden loom, Marie Hazard weaves stories with miles of thread. Through a long and complex process, she brings together traditional hand weaving techniques and digital printing technology to explore contemporary social and cultural conditions.

Belgian artist Jos Devriendt is renowned for his ceramic mushroom lamps; minimalist and iconic contemporary sculptures that are conceptual and functional.
