Interieur 2012: Biennale in the City, City in the Biennale The 2012 edition of Interieur—the European Design Biennale taking place in Kortrijk, Belgium, October 20–28—is bound to become one of the top global design destinations this year. Curator and Interieur President Lowie Vermeersch (former head of design at Pininfarina and now CEO of the Turin-based GranStudio), set out to reconnect with Interieur's avant-garde roots through a selection of 300 carefully picked international exhibitors and an extensive cultural program, 'Future Primitives' installations, custom-designed bars and a pop-up 'bistro.' Crucial this year is the expansion beyond the Xpo fairgrounds, into the city center and particularly the Buda Island. Together these expanded locations will establish a new DesignCity with a continuum of lanes, diagonals, piazzas and unexpected places where installations, actions and encounters unfold. The 60 m2 installations will be placed at piazzas created at various locations within the Biennale.

The First Art Newspaper on the Net The Museum of London said in a statement that this was "the first multidisciplinary study of the inhabitants of a city anywhere in the Roman Empire".© Museum of London. LONDON (AFP).- A DNA analysis of four ancient Roman skeletons found in London shows the first inhabitants of the city were a multi-ethnic mix similar to contemporary Londoners, the Museum of London said on Monday. Two of the skeletons were of people born outside Britain -- one of a man linked genealogically to eastern Europe and the Near East, the other of a teenage girl with blue eyes from north Africa. The injuries to the man's skull suggest that he may have been killed in the city's amphitheatre before his head was dumped into an open pit. Both the man and the girl were suffering from periodontal disease, a type of gum disease.

Homeless Paintings: crowdsourcing the diaspora of Italian renaissance art Amidst the archives that Bernard Berenson bequeathed to Harvard University at his Villa I Tatti in Florence is a collection of 17,000 photographs of Renaissance Italian paintings classified as “homeless”: works that were documented by a photograph but whose location was unknown. In a series of articles that appeared between 1929 and 1932 in the journals International Studio and Dedalo (posthumously collected, updated, and translated from the Italian as Homeless Paintings of the Renaissance, 1969), Berenson published some of his photographs of these artworks with the hope that their owners might come forward and claim them as their own. He intended to use the information offered to bring up to date his continuously revised “Lists” of the works of Italian Painters of the Renaissance, manuals that made available a body of unfamiliar images to a broad public of art lovers, collectors, and scholars.
