We had Music, we had Drinks, Snacks, Sauerkraüt, Partyhats, Photographers; we had 2 Group-Photo moments and we had FUN at Sexyland
A short clip by and for Mimi Berlin’s Friends and Families, a self-group portrait: posing on the couch. The portrayed are all creative minds from The Netherlands. In daily life they try to make the world a prettier place by creating and sharing (mostly behind the scenes) in the fields of art, music, design, theater, illustration, photography, jewellry, perfume and food, and by just having fun in general.

Circus Legends: Headless Girls
Mimi Berlin’s Circus legends came to life! Meet them in the photoseries by Wendelien Daan.
Dutch Photographer Wendelien Daan and Mimi Berlin collaborated on the photo series ‘Headless Girls’. They imagined two women who used to work being a circus act in the 20th century. These “Headless Girls” meet again, after decades, at a park.
Watch the Headless Girls move!

Fashion and Photography Horst P. Horst / Mattijs van Bergen
The exhibitions Horst P. Horst and Mattijs van Bergen’s “Photo to Fashion”, at the Netherlands Photo Museum, are the last exhibitions of the interdisciplinary Black/White program, which lasted 3 years and was about cross-overs between photography and other cultural disciplines.
Horst P. Horst, Photographer of Style, is a retrospective exhibition. produced by the V&A, curated by Susanna Brown. On show are all Horst’s iconic fashion photos, including vintage prints that were never on display. Also on show; Haute-Couture dresses, vintage vogue magazines, sketches and personal notes from Horst. (Sept 26, 2015/10 Jan10, 2016)
The Netherlands Photo Museum and Dutch fashion designer Mattijs van Bergen collaborated on the exhibition “Photo to Fashion“. Van Bergen designed a small collection, he was inspired by 20th century black and white photography from, for example, Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990). Mattijs van Bergen and the Netherlands Photo Museum then invited 3 Dutch fashion photographers, all female and from 3 different generations; Sacha van Dorssen, Wendelien Daan and Petrovsky & Ramone to interpret this capsule collection, next to B&W they all added color to their work, unlike Mattijs van Bergen; the copper accessories were the only touch of color to be seen: Chique!
Wendelien Daan is also the photographer of Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fests, she is family. We think she outdid herself with the “Nymphs” series she made for the “Photo to Fashion” exhibition. The museum liked it as well; Her work “Jamilla” has been blown up larger than life, printed on plastic and can be seen outside as wall, next to 2 images by Horst…..BAM
