'Le snobisme de l'argent' appearing on QUEEN MUM'S MAIL – artist, producer and label owner Cosima von Bonin invites to a tea dance in Cologne

Le snobisme de l'argent ... Cosima von Bonin, artist and friend of GoSee, invites to a tea dance in Cologne. The occasion: the release party of 'Le snobisme de l'argent' by friend and musician Justus Köhnke on the label QUEEN MUM'S MAIL in Cologne's perhaps hippest club at the moment: our friend Robert's Clubheim Olympia Cologne.

“Two years ago, I suddenly felt like releasing a record after an about 20-year break. Music, which actually needs to be on it, I didn't have at first. I only had a name for my "label": Queen Mum's Mail.” Cosima von Bonin tells GoSee and adds “Viola Klein came to my place for dinner at some point and brought me her latest 12''. I wanted the B side right away and got it too ... but not the A side because that was reserved for Justus – although I didn't know if he had anything or what he had.”

And if you now want to know – what Justus has – and you happen to be in Cologne, then please go see Robert on Sunday at Clubheim Olympia and celebrate with our friends.

About - COSIMA VON BONIN. Cosima von Bonin (born 1962 in Mombasa, Kenya) is a German artist, who lives and works in Cologne. von Bonin is a concept artist and works with textiles, films, installations, and social relationships. Bonin has been married to German artist Michael Krebber since 1992, whom she met via Martin Kippenberger while Krebber was his assistant. Since 2000, Bonin has been in contact with German musician Dirk von Lowtzow, whom she often works with. Occasional interactions between Bonin's work and that of von Lowtzow occur now and them, for instance, when Bonin names one of her exhibitions after a Tocotronic song as in the case of 'Wir sind viele'. von Lowtzow often writes the press texts for von Bonin's exhibitions.

Since around 2009, Bonin has been working with another German musician: Moritz von Oswald. Bonin is responsible for the cover art of his three albums which were released on the label Honest Jon's and uses his music in her exhibitions. Her recent exhibitions “The Fatigue Empire” and “The Lazy Susan Series” can be seen as a praise to exhaustion in a society characterized by pressure to perform. Influences and artists Cosima von Bonin greatly appreciates include: Marcel Broodthaers, André Cadere, Cady Noland, Isa Genzken, Michael Clark, Jacques Tati, and George A. Romero. von Bonin has a tenure at the University of Fine Arts Hamburg, after having had guest professorships there.

#EDUCATION IS OUR FUTURE : Pro Namibian Childreninvited to a charity gala with the Ambassador of Namibia, concert pianist Albert Lau and musical star Uwe Kröger at Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum and for a round of afterwork networking at MAISON MARSIL

At #EDUCATION IS OUR FUTURE, Pro Namibian Children e.V. invited to the first public event on 4 April, 2019, at the Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum in Cologne. The organization supports the Omomas Care Center in the particularly poverty stricken south of Namibia, where every year around 120 orphans and street children find a home and, above all, are granted access to education. The evening with more than 280 visitors began with a special guided tour through the Museum of Ethnology and Nature, followed by a gospel hymn from Namibia, performed by Marie Enganemben.

Flown in from Berlin as the guest of honor was the Ambassador of Namibia, Andreas B.D. Guibeb. Following the invitation by chairman of the association Frank Pochert, who also acted as central coordinator of the event, were also Yvonne Gebauer, Minister of Education of North Rhine-Westphalia and Christian Kampen from Kf W Entwicklungsbank. In an entertaining panel of experts with Dr. med. Anja Huppertz, Chairman of the Board Pro Namibian and presenter Annica Hansen they discussed private commitment, its impact and, above all, the heart and soul associations like Pro Namibian Children e.V. and their sponsors and helpers put into such projects. The ambassador praised what he refers to as 'productive' tourism since many private Namibian travelers tend to develop their own initiatives to contribute after making their own experiences in the African country.

A further highlight was the musical program with internationally renowned musical actor Uwe Kröger and classical concert pianist Albert Lau on the Steinway grand piano – From Broadway To Hollywood. In addition, the volunteers of the Omoma Care Center prepared a film that granted insight into the work and everyday life in the orphanage.

After the official 'get together' with African finger food from Bunte Burger and drinks, a nightcap was served at the hotel bar of MAISON MARSIL, where initiators, the Ambassador, artists and friends had the chance to review the beautiful and very entertaining evening in a private atmosphere. As the event photographer, Jannis Schilling c/o Peter & Pablo supported the evening.

GoSee and also the Hotel Marsil gladly support Pro Namibian Children e.V. by raising awareness for its work and projects. As it was put it so nicely during the podium discussion: 'If your own refrigerator is full, you can support others who have been born into a system without compulsory school attendance and without a perspective for the future.' Which is why we suggest: Just show initiative because every little bit helps, and you even get a donation receipt on top. #EDUCATION IS OUR FUTURE!
