An exciting art year is coming to an end. For the museums, galleries and off-spaces visited, the artists met and interviewed, the cities, art fairs and artist talks attended, the collabs with fascinating brands, the new friends made, all learnings and experiences, I am incredibly grateful! Here are some tips for Christmas time.

1) Exhibition: Weihnachten und Krippen at Landesmuseum

The traditional christmas manger exhibition at Landesmuseum is presented in a refreshed way. Placed in a romantic winter forest, mangers from Europe, Africa, America and Asia can be viewed. A special focus is placed on the materials used to construct these mangers, including paper, clay as well as wood. Runs until 5.01.
