Cover Story: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
We take you to a world full of visual atrocities and formal torturing techniques. In our lead article, art historian Annette Tietenberg explores the boundaries between kitsch, art, and downright ugliness. We have also compiled and analyzed a whole host of tasteless samples from the world of product and graphic design, among other things Volker Albus does not hold back with his aversion towards Karim Rashid. However, at times the ugly can be so terribly beautiful that one simply cannot stop wanting more. By way of example, Claus Richter makes confession of his passion for brightly colored plastic toys.
