Sammelwut Art and Interior Shop

Sammelwut in Nijmegen

Sammelwut is a German term; literally translated into English as collectors rage. But it rather means the deep urge to collect stuff. As you know we, at Mimi Berlin, are almost professional collector’s, also our objects are made of what we collect. Rob Geertman, the owner of the Sammelwut store chose a number of Faces, made by us, to showcase at Sammelwut. Sammelwut we love that word and we are very pleased that our work can be found at this art and interior store in Nijmegen.

“Sammelwut is the store in Nijmegen for lovers of contemporary art and a stylish and modern interior. In our store you will find a varying range of artworks combined with an inspiring collection of home accessories.”

Nijmegen

Nijmegen is a lovely city in The Netherlands, set in the ‘river landscape between the Rhine, Meuse and Waal rivers “Nijmegen is also the oldest city in The Netherlands so a city-stroll will bring you to castles and “archaeological finds dating back to the Romans and other times” The Sammelwut shop is situated in the city-center in the Lange Hezelstraat 89, 6511 CE Nijmegen

200 Plus Artworks at Bradwolf Projects Amsterdam

Reflection in Time 200 plus Artworks

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!)

Wonderful Things from Tim Walker

Wonderful Things

We, Mimi Blogger Team, visited the Tim Walker exhibition ‘Wonderful Things’ at the V&A museum in London the other day (the exhibition ran from 21 September 2019 to 22 March 2020). We are fans of the photographer Tim Walker, so we simply had to come to London all the way from Amsterdam.
As always, we took pictures for you, who couldn’t be there.

Glossy

The first room, at the start of the exhibition, is filled with work made for fashion magazines. Hence the dripping ‘gloss’ from the ceiling we guess.
