|… Impressionen auf dem Weg zu Tschau Tschüssi. Das Café Cantona – ein beliebtes Szene-Café.|

On Easter Monday we took a trip to L E i P Z i G. With the ICE, it is only 1 hour away from Berlin, so ideal for a day trip. I like the city very much. For me it is next to Hamburg the only conceivable alternative to Berlin. Some years ago I was there more often and explored several quarters and districts. Much has happened since then: houses have been renovated, neighborhoods revitalized. I would gladly pursued all my traces of the past again, but one day is not enough unfortunately. In addition, temperatures around freezing and a running tired girl have prevented it. More than a short walk through the city center and the medieval-themed Easter market up to Tschau Tschüssi was not possible. What a pity that Miriam’s beautiful store was closed. Ma and I would love to rummage extensively.

Instead of rummaging we have visited the Grassi Museum for Applied Arts. The little girl´s shoe tick took us first to the exhibition ‚STARKER AUFTR i T T‚ (‚Strong Appearance‘). There you find around 100 rather startling and wild footwear creations of world-renowned artists, architects and designers. Portable or not? The question does not arise. It’s all about the shoes ‚as to be shaped sculpture‚. The exhibition was made in cooperation with the Dutch Liza Snook, which incidentally manage a virtual shoe museum.

Then we took a look at the permanent collection. Even my husband, who shares my passion for everyday objects only partially, was impressed by the selection and especially their presentation.
Mein Herz ließen die Exponate der Moderne höher schlagen und darunter vor allem das Holzspielzeug, das Jenaer Glas und die wunderbare Typenküche nach einem Entwurf von Erich Dieckmann aus dem Jahre 1927.

I was especially inspired by the exhibits from the 1920th like the wooden toys, dishes of Jenaer Glas and the wonderful type kitchen, designed by Erich Dieckmann from the year 1927..
