Munich; ARKADENDINNER at Kunstverein München
by Venetia Kapernekas
A lovely annual gala dinner ‘Arkadendinner’ for support the Kunsteverein of Munich last Wednesday evening. A lovely summer evening helped so the dinner took place under the Arcade.
a performance by the artist Eglė Budvytytė took place in the garden. The performers/players worn ‘Mongolian Dragging Hoodies’. Produced together with fashion designer Andrea Kränzlin, the hoodies are inspired by attire worn by Mongolian fighters. Originally designed for practicality, the artist had these Hoodies specially-made to protect the heads, necks and shoulders of the performers in her piece Some were carried, some – dragged behind for Kunstverein München’s Akardendinner. Budvytytė has had each of the Hoodies – one of each of the performers – remade as a unique edition of 5.
lovely to sit with my friends, Esther Donatz, gallerist/MU and Daniel Wingate (Escada’s artistic director)
