Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fest nr. 8

The Movie.
Discotheque: the Party-Celebration: A party hosted by Mimi Berlin, celebrating (almost) 5 years of Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fest (selfportraits by, for and with Mimi Berlin). We had Music, we had Drinks, Snacks, Sauerkraüt, Partyhats, Photographers; we had 2 Group-Photo moments and we had FUN  at Sexyland

A short clip by and for Mimi Berlin’s Friends and Families, a self-portrait: posing on the couch. The portrayed are all creative minds from The Netherlands. In daily life they try to make the world a prettier place by creating and sharing (mostly behind the scenes) in the fields of art, music, design, theater, illustration, photography, jewellry, perfume and food, and by just having fun in general.  (read more mimiberlinfashionfest.com) Thanks You Wendelien Daan!

Dutch Design Week 2017 at the VDMA Garage

Dutch Design Week 2017 at the VDMA Garage

Mimi Blogger Team visited the VDMA Garage during the Dutch Designweek in Eindhoven. DDW can be visited until October 29th, 2017. The VDMA building can be roughly divided into 2 parts; left and right. This post is about the work exhibited on the right end of the venue.

(Please click the images for more information)

In the world of Dutch Design there is this complex way of presenting. Almost every designer works with more than one collective, organisation, experiment, project, brand, manufacturer, sponsor, curator and god knows what else, besides having their own toko, (that means shop in Bahasa) which is almost always named after themselves, adding the word ‘studio’ either in front or after the designer’s given name.

If you’re not familiar with these kind of systems and, even more important; if you don’t know all the names by heart, you are often not quite sure what you’re watching. Seeing the same designers scattered allover the DDW can be confusing as well. We, at Mimi Berlin Blogger Team, don’t like that, so we did some research and came up with the following ‘main events’ situated at the VDMA building. Continue reading

Bartje The Dutch Farmer Boy

A Dutch Icon in a still-life in stone set by Mimi Berlin.Bartje The Dutch Farmer Boy

The boy in the middle is Bartje Bartels. He is a little farmer boy from Drenthe, a province of The Netherlands. He is brought up in a very poor family. Writer Anne de Vries came up with this caracter in 1935 and named his book after him. He wrote two booksabout Bartje. The quote Ik bid niet veur brune bonen” (I don’t pray for brown beans) became well known in The Netherlands after Bartje became a tv series in 1972. The egg on the right is made out of concrete by Bloomingville. The Powercharger on the left is from Kreafunk. Just so you know! Have a nice day! xoxo

The Ideal City/La Città Ideale in the 15th Century

The Ideal City/La Città Ideale in the 15th Century

If you paid attention during art history classes (well, even if you didn’t) you know that the paintings ‘The Ideal City/La Città Ideale’ are one of the most fine examples of Italian Renaissance work. The Ideal City/La Città Ideale is a name given to 3 paintings which are kept at Urbino, Baltimore and Berlin and are named likewise. They are also known as the Urbino perspectives. The Ideal City of Urbino is the one we would like to share with you in specific. The Ideal City of Urbino, circa 1470, tempera on panel.

At the time we were in school this painting was believed to be made by Piero della Francesca. After that it was attributed to Luciano Laurana (and Francesco di Giorgio, Martini or Melozzo da Forlì.) Nowadays nobody knows for sure. (#theunneccesraythings #youneedlearnandremember) Continue reading
