28.07.2022 • How was the album ‘Mensch’ made? Which ingredients, people and moments contributed to it? We present you the wonderful book project on the creation of the album ‘Mensch’ by musician, actor and poet Herbert Grönemeyer, illustrated by Katrin FUNCKE c/o ART ACT. The idea as well as the text for the book came from Arezu Weitholz. A must for all Grönemeyer fans and simply a pleasure to leaf through it.

Where do melodies come from? Where does it all start? “It all begins with the sound of a friend’s voice,” says Herbert Grönemeyer. In 2000, he started working on his album ‘Mensch’ in London, which hit number one upon release and stayed in the charts for 96 weeks. The author and contemporary witness Arezu Weitholz followed the creative process behind the album close up as a text dramatic advisor for text and embarks on a search for information with this book. A book which grants insight into precisely this creative process telling the story of a very special artist in a special life situation and in London at the turn of the millennium, a city drumming and bassing and moshing. A book, an...

25.07.2022 • In light of recent events, we are delighted to present the November 2021 cover of CICERO once again by retro specialist Michael PLEESZ c/o ART ACT. Who would have thought that grain would play such an important role in our digital world? And that Mrs. Baerbock* would be – at least for the moment – the one who seems to be calling the shots and surpassing her male colleagues in terms of popularity?

The cover motif for the direction of the new German government coalition came in second place in the cover-of-the-month competition upon publication. We have a few jury statements for you on GoSee.NEWS:

Christian Anhut, Executive Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi: “Foreign policy as a re-plowed field. And our new federal government as a carpool trying to find a mutual direction. Good luck!”

Elmar Gerlach, Creative Director at Butter: “Wonderful retro illustration symbolizing the departure from a healthy but dusty world. Garnished with the title of SPD magazine ‘Vorwärts’, befitting of the SPD run government. My cover of the month.”

In the typical somewhat retro style of Michael c/o ART...
