Silent Auction for Neuperlach Zoo Chapter 2

To help the Munich Street Artists who created the Mingaland installation at the Odeonsplatz window, we are having a 7 day silent auction of the artwork hanging in the installation- Neuperlach Zoo Chapter two – Mingaland Cash Machine.

Zwist, Kult, Pyser,DerBlauenvogel and ADK created the artwork shown below on A1 posters of a cash machine.  Now they would like to sell the artwork so they can get back on the street creating street art for the Neuperlach Zoo Chapter 3.

The work will be in the window at Odeonsplatz for another week so go take a peek and pick a piece you would like to keep.  I have my heart set on this one:

Here is what the full installation looks like (men not included):

Artsy Things To do on July 2nd, 2016

I will be traveling around Munich tomorrow attending some events and wanted to share what is on my Facebook event feed with you.  Please remember that if you have an event and you send me an invitation on Facebook, I will add the event to our Munich Artists event list.  The event must be on Facebook and must be public. If you don’t do those things, I will not be able to share and that is always a sad thing.

The photo above is a photo of the Container collective.  This will be a creative spot over by Ostbahnhof where we hope to visit many creative people and see many creative things. Now, the events for tomorrow.

This weekend I will be going to:

Pop Up 2/ Open art Riemerling – Petra Amstberg Hoffman is the owner and organizer of this space and on Saturday from 1500 to 2200, she will be having an exhibition of atwork from artists who attended the summer academy in Salzburg together.  For the artists involved it is a reunion and for Munich, it is an opportunity to meet Norbert Bisky and Markus Proschek.  If you plan on going, go by car.

(From Petra’s space, I will be heading to the open Studios at Oberfoehringerstr.  I don’t have a Facebook event for this to share, but I will share some photos next week of the artists who allow me to share their work.)

KHBi3 – I live in Sendling so I’m always happy when events are close to home!  The KloHaeuschen will be having their 3rd Biennal on Saturday. It starts at 2000. Go the bathroom before you go, there are no functioning toilets for you to use just art and creative people and some beer.

Odeonsplatz Window – Kult is organizing street artists to create an installation at the window at Odeonsplatz.  If you want to watch them do their magic or, ask them questions, they will be there from 1200 to 1600.  This is your chance to meet the creators of the Neuperlach Zoo and to spot a street artist.   I will be there some of that time and look forward to seeing their work!

NOTE FOR MUNICH ARTISTS:

My True Self – July 10th we are filming at Odeonsplatz.  I will be making a special post for this tomorrow.  We will be meeting at Odeonsplatz for the filming and I look forward to seeing everyone’s Masks.  2 masks made by you.  One white and one whatever the heck you are willing to put on your face that represents your true self.  More information can be found on our open call for the my true self project.  If you have not made your mask, July 2nd is a good time to make one or two.

Inspired by art book – Brigitte Pruchnow – Artists participating in this first book should be sending me their image files to emmy@kyfio.com. Please remember that the artwork must be 2 Lateral A4s. If your work is not the right size it will be cropped. There are no white spaces.  I will be sending you all a reminder email in a few days. If you don’t have a scanner, you can bring it to Frauenstrasse and we will scan the work.  This is by appointment only I love you all but I’m not around Frauenstrasse at any specific time during the summer.

500 Artists Play Cards – We will be starting a kickstarter for this project to fund our event in November 2016.  Our goal is to have 500 people playing cards.  I hope you will join us and support our Kickstarter campaign. I’m working on the video now and we will launch the Kickstarter next week.  Artists involved in this project, please send Elizabeth Hughes your artwork ASAP.  We have a printer selected and we want to send the work to the printers. The event is schedule for November 19th.  I’m still looking for a space for us to have this fun event.  If you have a space, you think will work, let me know! Must be int eh city. Must hold 300 to 500 people.

Mingaland –  I’m sorry.  My mother hand a massive stroke and this art project was the one that was not started and therefore shelved for a few weeks.  I will let you know when we are ready to launch.  Hopefully by August 1st.

Lifelines – This is a new project that I am starting this month.  I am finishing the first one now.

 

 

 

 

 

Silke Wagner Wall Installation – 8.November 1939

Sometimes  you are so busy in Mingaland, that you forget to look at the art gems right in front of your face. Yesterday, this fact was brought to my attention when a childhood friend asked me where he could see the Georg Elser memorial.

“What memorial?”

“The one that lights up every night.”

“I have no clue what you are talking about.”

Finishing our diner, my friend asked if I would go with him to watch the memorial light up. Since I had no clue what he was talking about and I hate not knowing what people are talking about,  I wandered with him up to Maxvorstadt to visit the memorial at 21:20.

This is what we saw:

Silke Wagner created the installation in 2009 memorialising Georg Elser’s attempted assassination of Adolf Hitler. The 5.1 meter art installation hangs on the wall of a building and remains unlit except for one minute each day at the moment the explosion.

I looked around at the people eating dinner and chatting at the local bars surrounding the memorial and wondered if we were the only ones that understood why the lights were flashing for the one minute shortly before half past nine.

If you are in the area, please go check out this wall installation dedicated to a very brave soul and created by an artist who wants you to pay attention to your past and Germany’s present.

Location:

Georg Elser Platz  – Tuerkenstrasse, Munich, Germany (Near Schellingstrasse)   If you still can’t find it, hunt down Cafe Zeitgeist. It is on the building right before this cafe.
