FvF Workplaces: Meet Fashion Designer Stine Goya in Copenhagen
Danish born Stine Nistrup Masen – better known as Stine Goya – relocated to London to work as a model at a young age where she was surrounded and influenced by iconic fashion houses such as Chanel. Her love of fashion design led her to undertake studies at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design.
Today she has returned to Denmark and is the proud owner of the label, Stine Goya. We meet Stine in her studio and first flagship store in Gothersgade, Copenhagen to talk about her work, life as a mum and love of pastels and the great outdoors.
Visit her studio and store on Freunde von Freunden and see a special curation of this portrait on ELLE. 
Thank you Helle Andersen & Olivia Frølich!

Jean-Luc Blanc at Galerie Art:Concept, Paris 
On occasion of his eighth personal exhibition at Art Concept, Jean Luc Blanc presents a new series of drawings and paintings in “faux-roman visage’.
When talking about this artist, who has been shaking up the French art-scene for the last 20 years, it is difficult to get off the beaten tracks and avoid quoting his own sources of inspiration. 
His works, halfway between palimpsests and fictional objects, become a means to confront humanity to itself and to its fundamental contradictions. 
To see his works ,hurry up! The exhibition at Art:Concept, Paris runs until 23th of April 2014.

Creating Your Own Destiny: Hassan Hajjaj in Marrakech

Hassan Hajjaj has fond childhood memories of enjoying the simple things in life, like playing outside in his hometown of Larache, walking barefoot and visiting the mountains.

Thank you Philipp Löffler and Salwa Benaissa.

Die Gestalten Des Letzten Ufers by Michel Houllebecq
This week Michel Houllebecq's - Author of Atomised - 5th collection of poems has finally been released in Germany and is therefore the pick of the week.
'Configuration du dernier rivage' - Die Gestalt des letzten Ufers - is a collection of his poetry in a dark blue book. In the usual manner of his nihilistic yet congenial approach, he looks at what we call live from the other side and like his fiction, his poetry is immediately recognizable for its heavy servings of existential pessimism, that we have missed so much in recent years. Get it here.
