Andrzej Wróblewski








Andrzej Wróblewski (1927 - 1957) was one of Poland's most prominent artists in the early post World War II era. Both aesthetic and ideological elements fuse here into cold blue-green oil paintings with brutally deformed human figures. Among many others, a beautiful serie of Wróblewski's paintings is part of the following exhibition in Bruges: Luc Tuymans: A Vision of Central Europe. The Reality of the Lowest Rank. Definitely worth a day trip!

Zoe Beloff's Dreamland

If you want to know more about the forgotten history of Coney Island, make sure to visit Zoe Beloff's exhibition 'Dreamland: The Coney Island Amateur Psychoanalytic Society and its Circle, 1926-1972'. It's on view in KIOSK till November 28th. Pictures by Yana Foque.

My personal favorite is Beloff her new book/dream journal, 'The Adventures of a Dreamer by Albert Grass',  an exciting series of comic strip-like graphic explorations.

elephant hotel

















Above, an 1885 diagram of Elephantine Colossus, more famously known as 'the Elephant Hotel', an actual guest house from the early days of Coney Island.
The hotel opened in 1885, a 12-storey pachyderm with 31 organ-themed guest rooms that faced the ocean and featured an observation deck and a cigar store in its leg. In the 1890s its oddly shaped rooms served as a brothel.
