This was an Euro quicky. I got back from Rotterdam last night and still feel a little bit dizzy. Cosima von Bonin had an opening at Witte de With with the enormous title “Cosima von Bonin’s Far Niente for Witte de With’s Sloth Section, Loop # 01 of the Lazy Susan Series, a Rotating Exhibition 2010 – 2011”.
I don’t know what it was, but I was tumbling through the exhibition all night. Maybe it’s because I watched a bit of Play Time by Tati, which was screened in one of the rooms.
Anyways, at the end of the night, I was handing out the popular “You are Auf’d” postcards to get people to leave the show.

Thank you Bitz, Conny, Kyle & Toffi.

Saturday a week ago, I was part of the opening of Cosima von Bonin’s exhibition “The Fatigue Empire”. I had the honour of kicking people out of the Kunsthaus Bregenz. Sounds like the perfect job for me, right? My friend Doc Nancy was also there and drove the car through the 2nd floor of the Kunsthaus. Drink’n’Drive has never been more fun.
I started throwing people out on the 3rd floor by presenting “You Are Auf’d” postcards, which didn’t go down so well. Most people just wanted to stay. So, I said: “All cute people have to leave and you are very cute. Just look around, who’s left?!”.
And down the stairs they went.
Now you can call it performance. But when is a drag queen not performing? HELLO?!
Check out some pictures below and more after the jump. Even more pictures on flickr.

Lucie and Will have an opening at their gallery Pro Choice in Vienna tonight. And 5 million people are involved. Every one sent a poster which is going to be put up by Tom Humphreys.
The list of all people is below, but I really wanted to show you what my poster looks like. There is a some Chicago in there and no Bernhard Willhelm. I know, shocking.

The new issue of Mode Depesche has just been released. The cover of the fashion magazine features model and actress Marisa Berenson (granddaughter of famous fashion designer Elisa Schiaparelli). You may remember Marisa from her roles in Barry Lydon or Visconti’s Death in Venice. Of course there are many photos of her. I only want to point you to the cover of Vogue (July 1970), together with Helmut Berger.
Also, there is an interview with Peter Berlin done by Claus.
Anyway, at the beginning of July I did a short trip to Brussels to meet up with designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard to talk about his latest collections, French fries, obsessions and Madonna”™s death.
