Do you remember your first art class at school? Where you were allowed to play with watercolors for the first time and be fascinated by how the colors lose their saturation when you use more water? Now think about the whole experience with a glass of premium sparkling wine in your hand and with your best friends by your side. This is the moment you might wonder what kind of ‘results’ your art class would have brought to light back then under these circumstances :).
Once per year the premium sparkling wine Mumm Sekt releases a bottle set in collaboration with an artist. This year the collaboration is with famous fashion photographer Kristian Schuller. His design for the three different flavors of Mumm Sekt is the first time they take advantage of the medium of abstract photography. Read more about the collaboration here.
Leading into all of the fantastic art events happening in Berlin later this month Mumm is hosting a very unique ArtNight special this coming weekend to celebrate the launch of the 5th limited art edition of their sparkling wine. And the best thing: we have exclusive tickets for you to win for a sparkling experience!
This new ArtNight special is not just one night actually, it’s an experience happening four times over the course of the weekend at the brand new event hall in the mysterious underground floor of Silent Green in Wedding. But what’s gonna happen there?
The ultimate hot spot of the Gallery Weekend Berlin is Potsdamer Straße where many well-known galleries have settled in over the last years. The art scene has become buzzing and vibrant between the odd contrasts of Kurfürstenstraße and Wintergarten Varieté. Sometimes though, I am a bit upset that the whole artsy society is quiet elitist and closed towards an interested but maybe not so involved public.
I wonder: How can we deal with contemporary art in a more participatory and open-hearted way? During the upcoming Gallery Weekend Mumm Sekt is trying a new approach. The German sparkling wine company opened a pop-up Art Yard on Potsdamer Platz in collaboration with artist Daniel Egnéus. Egnéus, who is best known for his watercolor illustrations, has designed three Mumm Art Editions this year.
