THE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST project

   



On June 14-26 2009 "Emfangshalle" (Corbinian Böhm and Michael Grüber), the art group from Germany, will run a public art project "The Beauty and the Beast" in Kaliningrad. 

"The Beauty and the Beast" is about how Beauty can be perceived. On their visit to Kaliningrad the artists got an impression that everyone living here is thrilled about and competent in the issues of beauty. Russian women spend plenty of their time on Beauty. Men are also "big spenders on Beauty" - they pimp up their cars and pride themselves on them.
