A camera crew from the Avant/Garde Diaries (http://www.theavantgardediaries.com/) came here yesterday to interview our very own Ninetteabout her vision of the future and her look on the world we live in -and today they will spend the entire day in Antwerp to shoot extra material to accompany the interview- they even plan to climb the tower of the Cathedral of Our Fair Lady!
The Avant/Garde Diaries is a digital interview magazine that documents personal views on the avant-garde. They say: "Rather than labeling people avant-garde, we try to see through the eyes of people, who we admire for what they do. For each article we ask contributors from the creative field to introduce someone or something they consider to be ahead of time and explain why. The result will be a compendium of various, very personal perspectives that disclose new ways of thinking and spread inspiration.Corresponding to this digital platform, festivals will be hosted in metropolises around the world. Each event will be curated by an expert from the creative industry, showcasing his or her personal view on avant-garde. For information on upcoming and past events please check the Event category on this site.The Avant/Garde Diaries is a project by Mercedes-Benz."
Some of the creatives Avant/Garde Diaries profiled earlier include Raf Simons, Peter Saville, Peter De Potter, Jeffrey Deitch, Susie Bubble, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Olivier Zahm, Modeselektor, Marie Thumerelle, Artus de Lavilleon, DJ Hell and Konstantin Grcic, so Ninette is in great and inspiring company.
Be sure to check it out! We will let you know when the video gets uploaded.
