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.

Red Star Over Russia A Revolution in Visual Culture
Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to see the Red Star Over Russia (A Revolution in Visual Culture 1905 – ’55) exhibition at the Tate Modern in London the other day. This exhibition marks the centenary of the October Revolution. On show is a visual history of Russia and the Soviet Union. From the overthrow of the last Tsar and the revolutionary uprisings of 1917, through to the struggles of the Civil War and Stalin’s campaign of terror, it reveals how political events led to the social transformation that inspired a wave of innovation in art and graphic design across the country.
‘Red Star Over Russia’ is made with the huge collection of the late graphic designer David King (1943 – 2016) which carries over a quarter of a million artefacts by famous and anonymous photographers, artists and designers, it features over 250 posters, paintings, photographs, books and ephemera. King started his collection of over 250,000 items relating to this period while working for The Sunday Times Magazine in the 1970s. The collection was acquired by Tate in 2016.

” Mary (93) moved to her new place on April 22nd. I was with her helping her move when we heard the earth shattering news that Prince had died. My phone, as I know all other fans phones did, started blowing up with the news, and when I told Mary, she said “I always thought I would be in heaven before Prince.”Continue reading →
