Cobra Art Camping in Amstelveen

Art Camping Cobra

The Cobra Museum of modern art in Amstelveen is organizing ‘Camping Cobra‘ on the 25th of May 2019. What is this, you ask of us. Well, it’s exactly what you think it is. A sleepover at the Museum. Hunderd people can bring their sleepingbags and matresses to spend the night. Bringing your own matresses isn’t very chique, we know, but this is a slumberparty for children of course. We all now a child doesn’t need comfort whilst sleeping (tsssss). Adults are also welcome but they have to be accompanied by a kid.

24H Amstelveen Festival

The Camping event is organized within the 24H Amstelveen festival. 24H Amstelveen is about the experience of more than 40 activities in Amstelveen in just 24 hours. We suppose that’s for people with very little time to spend, like tourists for example, but also for children obviously.

Anyways, everything ‘tongue in cheek’ aside; if you would like to sleep under famous paintings made by Karel Appel and friends make a reservation here. It costs €10,-.

PS
We do hope that everybody reading this post knows what the Cobra Museum is. If not let us tell you. Cobra stands for Copenhagen (Co), Brussels (Br), Amsterdam (A), it is an expressionist art movement from the 20th century (1948-1951). the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen houses only work made by the artists whitin this group.

Children’s Bicycles in Amsterdam

Children’s Bicycles in Amsterdam

In Amsterdam, just like in any other city, bicycles aren’t pretty. Bikes are used every day and they need to be kept outside because nobody has a shed, and only a few get to live on a ground floor. Children’s Bicycles are also kept outside, mostly locked with a thick, fat chain so they won’t get stolen.

Children at Places for Grown Ups

Children at Places for Grown Ups

And in specific children at The Art Gallery during an opening, not acting like grown ups: gotta love it! Mimi Berlin thinks these private moments are always a joy to the eye.

These pictures are a small selection of Mimi Berlin’s Party-Snaps Series: here’s How They Do It at Gallerie Ramakers in The Hague, at het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, at Stigter van Doesburg and Baars Projects, Amsterdam and at Ventura Lambrate in Milan.

Giro Giro Tondo Exhibition at the Triennale Museum

Giro Giro Tondo Exhibition at the Triennale Museum

We, at Mimi Berlin, came to know about the Giro Giro Tondo “design for children” exhibition, at the Triennale museum, which was part of the Milan Design Week during Salone del Mobile 2017, via the local newspaper Het Parool. We didn’t attend the Design Week this year because we missed our flight. This week we will be posting about venues, designs and other places we feel we really missed out on.Giro Giro Tondo Exhibition at the Triennale Museum“The opening is an Ouverture, devoted to play design with a powerful figurative component and a pop spirit.”  For us this image is love at first site! (image from the local newspaper.) This we must see in real life! Must!

“A new history of Italian design, devoted to the world of children and to the design and architecture that has been created for them. It includes the games and images that have amused and informed them, the spaces within which they took their first steps, and the objects they used to discover the world.” triennale.org

Fortunately for us this exhibition runs through February 2018. (Concept and Direction:
Silvana Annicchiarico. Exhibition Design and Art Direction: Stefano Giovannoni with Tian Jin. Graphic Design: Giorgio Camuffo with CamuffoLab.
