Opening Re-mex in Berlin

re-mex opening

Despite rubbish weather I went yesterday to the opening of the Re-Mex: The Power of Arts exhibition at the very beautiful Mercado San Cosme in Torstraße.

The Re-Mex project was launched by the Goethe Institut together with European and Mexican partners in order to raise awareness of the environmental problems in Mexico. For that German artists carried out workshops in Mexico with local artists and youths to develop new approaches to address environmental problems and raise awareness on sustainability. The outcomes are innovative recycling creations made from cloths and plastic, which are now shown among other things until the 28th of May at the exhibition at the Mercado San Cosme and the WYE. During the 25th and 26th of May Berlin visitors can also participate at creative workshops with the artists. More info here.

And look at the creative way of hiding a bottle of beer during an official speech. Must take notes.

Gestern habe ich dem grausamen Wetter getrotzt und bin abends noch zur Ausstellungseröffnung Re-Mex: El poder de las artes im wunderschönen Mercado San Cosme in die Torstraße gefahren.

Re-Mex: El poder de las artes wurde vom Goethe Institut zusammen mit europäischen und mexikanischen Partnern ins Leben gerufen, um das das Bewusstsein für Umweltprobleme in Mexiko zu stärken. Mexikanische Jugendliche entwickelten dafür gemeinsam mit europäischen und mexikanischen Künstlern Ansätze, wie künstlerische Aktivitäten zu einem größeren Bewusstsein für vorherrschende Umweltprobleme und Nachhaltigkeit beitragen können. Herausgekommen sind innovative Recycling-Kreationen aus Kleidung und Plastik, die man bis zum 28. Mai im Mercado San Cosme und im WYE bestaunen kann. Am 25. und 26. Mai können die Berliner Besucher selber an einem kreativen Workshop teilnehmen. Mehr Info here.

Und schaut mal wie kreativ man unauffällig eine Flasche Bier während der offiziellen Rede halten kann. Muss ich mir merken!
