It is a little understatement, really. Art life of Baden doesn’t know days off, this town is never tired to surprise and stimulate your (art) senses.
An event not to miss this weekend: “Kulturtage in der Stanzerei Baden”. Alain Schartner, an artist from Wettingen, who makes fascinating and playful installations out of metal wire, managed to organize another wonderful event and bring together artists, musicians, and old friends under the roof of Stanzerei. I met Alain last year, when he kindly proposed to make and exhibition together. It was my first show in Switzerland and he was great help and fun to work with.
Alain Schartner and myself are "posing" for Konrad Richter, who did a great job photodocumenting this event. Nov 2009.
This year Alain collaborates with five artists: Claude Luethi, David Monllor, Ezra Pirk, Thomas Bestina, and Benjamin Solt. All of them are members of "We love kicks", an art project with a focus on the topic of sneaker culture.

Young artists bring young audience: the vernissage yesterday was buzzing with lively youth wearing (guess what?) sneakers, of course.
The concert program at the Stanzerei these days is:
FRIDAY // 19.11.2010 // 20:30 UHR // LOUFONQ
"An explosive mix of driving beats and deep grooves which brings the band any party started".
