Cookie Island

I like postcards, especially when they are mysterious and vague. When Cookies Club and No 74 sent out their postcards they knew very well that everyone would be puzzled about the invitation: meet us on an island upcoming Saturday, bring your bathing suits and friends, but we're not going to let you know just yet where we're headed.

Total Sellout

For more than 10 years the Total Sellout has provided young Graphic Designers and Artists the possibility to exhibit and sell their works. The idea started 2000 in Dresden, nowadays this temporary platform opens also in other cities like Leipzig or Berlin. We have been at Glogauer Straße to see a mix of fresh illustrations, handmade screen-print shirts, small installations, unique Photo books and of course nice kitsch. Most of the artworks where made by students of the illustration class of the UDK and the fellows of the Wildsmile Studios Dresden.
