From best-selling author Gary Krist, the story of the metropolis that never should have been and the visionaries who dreamed it into reality Little more than a century ago, the southern coast of California - bone-dry, harbor-less, isolated by deserts and mountain ranges - seemed destined to remain scrappy farmland. Then, as if overnight, one of the world’s iconic cities emerged. At the heart of Los Angeles’ meteoric rise were three flawed visionaries. William Mulholland, an immigrant ditch-digger turned self-taught engineer, designed the massive aqueduct that would make urban life here possible. D.W. Griffith, who transformed the motion picture from a vaudeville-house novelty into a cornerstone of American culture, gave LA its signature industry. And Aimee Semple McPherson, a charismatic evangelist who founded a religion, cemented the city’s identity as a center for spiritual exploration. All were masters of their craft, but also illusionists, of a kind. The images they conjured up - of a blossoming city in the desert, of a factory of celluloid dreamworks, of a community of seekers finding personal salvation under the California sun - were like mirages liable to evaporate on closer inspection. All three would pay a steep price to realize these dreams, in a crescendo of hubris, scandal, and catastrophic failure of design that threatened to topple each of their personal empires. Yet when the dust settled, the mirage that was LA remained. Spanning the years from 1900 to 1930, The Mirage Factory is the enthralling tale of an improbable city and the people who willed it into existence by pushing the limits of human engineering and imagination. 1.

Freddy Quinn - 1956-1965

1-CD-Album mit 8-seitigem Booklet, 24 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 65 Minuten. Als ein gewisser Freddy Quinn im Mai 1956 mit Heimweh , der vermeintlichen B-Seite seiner Debüt-Single, auf Platz 1 der deutschen Hitparade vorstieß, verbuchte die Polydor diesen sensationellen Erstlingserfolg als einen willkommenen Zufallstreffer, ohne ahnen zu können, welches Ausmaß an Erfolgen und Plattenumsätzen der Senkrechtstarten Freddy Quinn der Polydor in den nächsten 20 Jahren bescheren sollte. Heimweh wurde über zwei Millionen Mal verkauft und bildete den Auftakt zu der bis heute in Deutschland unübertroffenen Erfolgsserie des Freddy Quinn, die ihn längst über den Status eines Massenidols hinaus zu einer der markantesten Persönlichkeiten im öffentlichen Leben der Bundesrepublik gemacht hat. Seine vergoldeten Millionenerfolge wie Heimatlos , Junge komm bald wieder , Die Gitarre und das Meer und Unter fremden Sternen zeigen, das Freddy Quinn´s musikalischer Horizont und seine musikalischen Ambitionen weit über das Image des singenden Seemanns hinausgingen. 14 Titel auf diesem CD-Album sind der Feder seines Hauskomponisten Lotar Olias entsprungen, darunter You You You und Blue Mirage , die in den USA zu Riesenhits wurden. 1962 wurden beide Titel in Hamburg aufgenommen, blieben seinerzeit unveröffentlicht und erleben in dieser Auswahl ihre Uraufführung. Dieses CD-Album spiegelt den erfolgreichen Zeitraum von 1956-1965 des grandiosen Freddy Quinn wieder.

Aapo Huhta

Confronting a landscape at the very edge of human endurance, always changing, yet always somehow the same, Aapo Huhta´s pictures from the Namibian desert consider what might be left when all we think we know about ourselves, about human society, has been stripped away. The place itself, a vast emptiness that threatens to engulf everything it touches, is both the catalyst for this loss and its final manifestation. Of course, there is a long tradition in art of using places to reflect on human experiences, and Huhta´s pictures certainly belong to this tradition, not least because they are images of feeling that eschew simple description or documentation. He depends on an imaginatively loaded series of encounters to bring out the symbolic or metaphorical aspects of this real place, so that it becomes, effectively, a stage-set to enact a drama that is at once personal and global. Similarly, the title Omatandangole is a local word that indicates a mirage phenomenon, something that seems real, but is ultimately just an illusion, created by the unique conditions of the desert environment. It tells us that we have arrived at a place where ´normal´ experiences of body and mind no longer apply. »Even though our surroundings are chaotic and broken it is possible to create photographs that show them as complete and pristine, so unlike what they are in reality. And yet - in that brief moment that is captured by the camera, wasn´t that sense of completeness true for a fleeting moment? An elusive bliss that can dissolve as fast as it emerged.« - Aapo Huhta Photographs for the series were shot in Namibia between 2016-2018. The photo series was shortlisted for the Unseen Dummy Award 2018 and received the Artproof Grant 2019.
