LESUNG LISA D. & FIONA BENNETT @FLUSH, BERLIN 25.11.19
Anlässlich der Veröffentlichung von Lisa D.’s Buch »Klääsch« veranstalteten Fiona Bennett und Lisa D. am 25.11. 2019 im Flush im Berliner Wintergarten Varieté zwei inspirierende Lesungen. Die zwei Frauen nahmen ihr Publikum mit zurück in ein Berlin der 1980er und 1990er Jahre, das sie gemeinsam mit ihren wilden Inszenierungen nachhaltig prägten. Neben den Erzählungen der beiden Modeschöpferinnen wurden illustre Filme aus ihrer gemeinsamen Zeit in dem wohl ungewöhnlichsten und schönsten Sanitärbereich der Welt gezeigt, Design von Fiona Bennett & Hans-Joachim Böhme.
Sowohl Lisa D.’s Buch “Klääsch.” als auch Fiona Bennetts & Eva Sichelschmidt’s “Vom Locken der Federn” sind, auch als Geschenkset, in unserem Ladengeschäft erhältlich.

Es war ein wundervoller Abend! Vielen Dank an das Wintergarten Varieté Berlin und an die zahlreichen Besucher.
Conceived by a free spirit that doesn’t need categories. Fiona Bennett reinvents interior design – just recently the „flush“ at Berlin’s Wintergarten Varieté (with Hans-Joachim Böhme) – , creates costumes for theatre and film and is a successful businesswoman and member of the “International Women’s Forum“. Her creation “Nosedive“ was shown at the VON BARTHA-gallery in Basel, it was party of the 2016 exhibition „Surrealism & Beyond“ at the Boljmans van Beuningen-Museum in Rotterdam and is currently on display at Galerie Alexander Ochs. “Nosedive II“ – created by Fiona Bennett specifically for Berlin’s Kornversuchsspeicher – is a departure from familiar terrain. It connects mental labour to the room and the room to the spectator and displays a mirror image as multi-faceted as the person reflected in it.
The object was shown as part of the group exhibition „Wonderland II“ at Kornversuchsspeicher from April through July 2018.

The Shopkeepers celebrates the diversity and creativity of brick-and-mortar businesses, telling the stories of the shops and their unique owners. “The Shopkeepers ” ISBN 978-3- 89955-590-5 , Gestalten Verlag.
