niemeyer’s AHA! events – by tradition current

And quite frequently more topical – and foremost more striking – than some of today’s contemporaries not least in politics & economy may like. But no matter whether Hogarth or Ridinger, Landseer or Daumier – to name but a few from five centuries – now comment on current events or jubilees and other festivities and occasions are to be honored, it’s always: every month new – every month something else.
