Oeufs / Eggs Marcel Broodthaers

Oeufs / Eggs

Belgian artist, poet and filmmaker Marcel Broodthaers (1924-76) loved Oeufs and Eggs, he used many of them as a subject for his paintings and installations in the 1960s.

We made a little collection out of some of his works containing Oeufs/eggs. These works, in white, are part of collections of various museum’s of modern art from allover the world. (see below)

“All is eggs. The world is an egg. The world is born of the great yolk, the sun.”
-– Marcel Broodthaers,1966.

Suzy Menkes on tour in Belgium and The Netherlands

Suzy Menkes on tour in Belgium and The Netherlands

Suzy Menkes is a world-renowned, British, fashion journalist, at the moment she works for Vogue (international). Last week she came to visit Belgium and The Netherlands. Her tour started in Brussels for the fashion exhibition “The Belgians” at Bozar, followed by a visit to Antwerp’s Momu with Dries Van Noten, and a meeting with Walter van Beirendonck. In The Netherlands she opened the fashion exhibition “New for Now” at the Rijksmuseum and she visited Denim City, both in Amsterdam. Ms Menkes also visited the exhibition “Everything but Clothes” at the Arnhem Museum.
Yes, we can read your mind; this is also a tour for us fashion lovers. We can visit 4 new exhibitions on fashion, just like Suzy M.

Suzy Menkes will be writing a fashion column for the Dutch (cheap, glossy) magazine Beau Monde. Her first story will be published in the October issue 2015 of the magazine. Hard to believe that’s true: this magazine is not about fashion but about (Dutch) celebrities…..Wir sind gespannt.
