This basically was the idea for the art-auction held at the Dutch Architecture Institute to raise money for the people in Pakistan after it flooded in 2010.
Safe drinking water the goal. By means of life-straws: personal portable water filters.
More then 120 art works were donated. By both artists as well as private collectors.
Over €17.000 was raised.
Not much, you might say. But certainly a lot more then we, Gudrun Feldkamp and me, could have contributed on our own. And since everthing was sponsored; the construction for the exhibition, the PA system, the concerts, the catalogue, the flyers, the notary, the packaging, the lighting - except our lunch during the auction day on saterday - we agreed it was quite succesfull.
- The NAi building was closed for renovation so we could use the main exhibition space.
- More then 40 volunteers helped to make this happen.
