It’s a problem faced by many home decorators: how to fill those awkward wall spaces on either side of the fireplace.
I’m not the first traveller to spot the similarities between Lisbon and San Francisco but, by coincidence, I visited both places in the space of a month so, for myself, the sense of a double-take was even more pronounced.
Why New York? Why Manhattan? What is it that makes this place the metropolis?
There are days when life seems to be full of so much shit.
Underneath the MONAS tower there is a huge hall called the National History Museum. It’s very much of its time, all shining marble and bright lights.
Earlier this year I visited MONA in Hobart, and more recently MONAS (Monumen Nasional) in Jakarta – very different, culturally, but similar in the way they both tell a story about our times through the medium of art.
