Irving Penn . Centennial
The exhibition about Irving Penn is a unique possibility, to see a lot of incredible motives the american photographer took over the years. The C/O shows some of his famous fashion photographs, as well as his portraits of well known people and some of his more abstract motives like the ends of cigarettes that he found on the streets of New York. It is a big exhibition, been shown in the whole house, available until the first of July! (they have longer opening times this Saturday)

Happy Pride month. The streets of many different cities were full of rainbow colors and happy people, who celebrated the Pride Month this year:
Virgil Abloh for LVMenSS19
The Off-White Designer celebrated his debut for Louis Vuitton with his Men Fashion Show in Paris. He convinced everyone not only with amazing designs and a colorful runway, but also with some real emotions, when he fell into his friends arms (Kanye West), being obviously relieved at the end of the show.
The World-cup is not over yet, well for Germany sadly it is…so here are some public viewing impressions:
The death of the rapper XXXTentacion didn’t only shock his fans. It was followed by a big discussion as you could almost follow his path of being shot and dying in the hospital browsing all the photos and videos that have been made by onlookers and also the shaming that came after the death as the rapper was looked at critically from many people. What are your thoughts about it?
Instagram YouTube function
The newest Instagram tool, also called the YouTube imitation by some people, makes it possible for the user to upload not only snippets (stories) but some real video clips.
From our CEO @kevin: “Today, we have two big announcements to share. First, Instagram is now a global community of one billion! Since our launch in 2010, we’ve watched with amazement as the community has flourished and grown. This is a major accomplishment — so from all of us at Instagram, thank you! Second, we’re announcing our most exciting feature to date: IGTV, a new app for watching long-form, vertical video from your favorite Instagram creators, like LaurDIY (@laurdiy) posting her newest project or King Bach (@kingbach) sharing his latest comedy skit. While there’s a stand-alone IGTV app, you’ll also be able to watch from within the Instagram app so the entire community of one billion can use it from the very start. IGTV is different in a few ways. First, it’s built for how you actually use your phone, so videos are full screen and vertical. Also, unlike on Instagram, videos aren’t limited to one minute. Instead, each video can be up to an hour long. We made it simple, too. Just like turning on the TV, IGTV starts playing as soon as you open the app. You don’t have to search to start watching content from people you already follow on Instagram and others you might like based on your interests. You can swipe up to discover more — switch between “For You,” “Following,” “Popular” and “Continue Watching.” You can also like, comment and send videos to friends in Direct. Also like TV, IGTV has channels. But, in IGTV, the creators are the channels. When you follow a creator on Instagram, their IGTV channel will show up for you to watch. Anyone can be a creator — you can upload your own IGTV videos in the app or on the web to start your own channel. Instagram has always been a place to connect with the people who inspire, educate and entertain you every day. With your help, IGTV begins a new chapter of video on Instagram. We hope it brings you closer to the people and things you love. IGTV will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks on iOS and Android.
