Last weekendt we, at Mimi Berlin visited the third edition of the photographyfair ‘Buy My Darlings‘ at the NDSM building in Amsterdam.
Buy My Darlings Photographyfair
Dutch photographers Tara Fallaux en Martijn van de Griendt started the BMD fair In 2020 as a platform for fellow artists to show and sell their work in a more casual environment than, for instance, a gallery. Since then, the platform has attracted well known artists and many more visitors every year. In 2022, this year, the 2 day fair has 40 participating photographers

Mimi Blogger Team visited the Dutch annual art fair; Big Art. This year, just as the last time, it was held at The Hemburg grounds (in an old munitions factory) in 4 large exhibition halls. Hembrug is situated on the border between Zaandam and Amsterdam. Though it was raining cats and dogs Mimi Blogger Team still managed to take a few pictures for you,
Reflection in Time is an art project initiated by Nannet van der Kleijn. Ms van der Kleijn sent about 500 pieces of blank linen canvasses in A4 size to friends, family and acquaintances. She asked if they wanted to do ‘something’ with that piece of cloth. (The previous sentence is us, at Mimi Berlin, putting the more elaborate vision of Nannet van der Kleijn in a tiny nutshell ofcourse!)

The archaeological finds of the North / Southline in Amsterdam
During the excavation of soil for the North/South Metro line an archaeological research-team was created, they found a massive collection of 665,412 man-made objects. From 18 century nails and jewelry to spoons from the 1980s. Some of these objects are on display at Station Rokin, the complete collection can be found online at belowtheservice.amsterdam
In 2004 the digging started for a new metro line in Amsterdam, the North/Southline, it was finished in july 2018. It ‘s a short line of only 9,7 km long, but it runs under water from Central Station to the Nortern part of the city. That’s why it’s quite functional, because without a car you could only reach Amsterdam Noord by ferry-boat or bus.
Anyways you vcan view the complete collection online and play with it. Like we did above. That’s all for today! Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi
