"BLAU is like your favorite restaurant, where you want to order every single dish". This is how Peter Lindbergh described this contemporary art magazine founded in Germany in 2015, today known throughout the world as a new reference for international art journalism. Published twice a year, its unique blend of content alternates intriguing stories and imagery about today's art world - whether it's studio visits with the most influential artists of our time, exclusive contributions from acclaimed writers like Karl- Ove Knausgård, Siri Hustvedt and Julian Barnes, or portfolios of famous photographers such as François Halard.
BLAU INTERNATIONAL is coffeetable magazine, but also a wonderful collector's item.
