Goodbye Daan van Golden at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen

Less than a month ago, on January 9, Dutch artist Daan van Golden passed away. In Van Golden’s memory museum Boijmans van Beuningen (in Rotterdam) staged a temporary presentation for his family and friends to bid the artist a worthy farewell. A small selection of his impressive oeuvre can be seen in the Serra Gallery till February 19, 2017. (Read more at

This weekend on Saturday February 4, the day on which Daan van Golden would have celebrated his 81st birthday, the family was at the presentation. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to offer condolences in person. And Yes we took snaps. Snaps?! you ask of us. Yes we did, sometimes one doesn’t know what do in a situation because of the sadness or just beacause you are stunned, and then you just take snaps…..At least we, at Mimi Berlin do. (We have been taken snaps at even more sad occassions than this one, which we never will post because they are too private or awkward, but we feel we can post these series; in memory of Mr van Golden.) Goodbye Daan van Golden.
Thank you Mr & Mrs. J.

Fuorisalone Milano 2014: Nendo x COS

Japanese designer brand Nendo teamed up with the Swedish fashion-chain COS to show at the Via Delle Erbe 2 at the Milan Design Week of 2014. This team came up with the installation “Space Dipped Shirts”. The shirts weren’t actually dip-dyed but sewn in different color blocks, following the metal frames they were placed in. Downstairs there was a solo exhibition by Nendo to be seen. They are truly Master in presentation! We, at Mimi Berlin, also photographed the signs that went with the designs, just to state that fact.
