Amdam's interview with Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Artistic Director of (d)OCUMENTA 13, her many suggestions include that, "We might get museums of time, instead of museums of art or science.

An exhibition of work developed by Laura F. Gibellini during her recent residency at ISCP opens at Galería Asm28 in Madrid on December 1, 2011. The works in Variations on a Lansdcape explore cartography and the mechanisms used by maps to depict a given reality. Going beyond topography, they attempt to transcend the spatial dimension to accommodate temporality, psyche, memory, desire, past and future.
