happy easter!!

 
ich hoffe ihr habt/hattet frohe Ostertage!
 
hope you have/had wonderful easter days!


 
Osterzeit ist - v.a. wenn das Fest so spät ist wie dieses jahr - bei uns spargelzeit!
wir leben in einer spargelanbauregion (nicht dass er deshalb auch nur einen Cent billiger wäre, im Gegenteil: preise wie auf dem münchner Viktualienmarkt! aber hier kenne ich meine Bezugsquelle und bin sicher, dass ich einen ohne-folienabdeckung gezogenen kriege, was inzwischen sehr selten ist!)
 
neues Rezept ausprobiert: grüner Spargel mit quinoa und Garnelen
(von hier)
und mein lieblingsgetränk, ein pils (zu hause immer ein alkoholfreies)
 
living in a landscape where Asparagus is cultivated, i love to eat this vegetable, as the season is short... i tried a new recipe (sorry, german link only) with green Asparagus, quinoa and shrimps.
yummy! (my mandatory pils, alc-free)
~~~~~~~
 
endlich hab ich mir zeit genommen, die Fotos durchzugehen, die ich vor einem Monat im münchner MUCA geknipst habe.
dort war gerade eine Ausstellung diverser streetartisten, die in form eines "streetopoly" vorgestellt wurden.
(bei Interesse text lesen)
 
 
finally i took time to go through the photos i took at the MUCA last month.
the Installation was "streetopoly", a game created in dependence on Monopoly:
in this layout the streets (as in german Editions - i have no idea about international variations) are replaced by street artists... arranged by their value on the market
 
 
Spielfiguren waren natürlich passenderweise Spraydosen und malkübel
 
the pegs/ Counters (?) are fittingly spray cans and paint buckets

 
so konnte man sich also über 22 Künstler informieren.
es würde zu weit führen, hier alle vorzustellen, ich greife einfach meine "Lieblinge" heraus:
es gab zu jedem eine info-karte mit dt/engl text, sehr praktisch; anhand dieser karte wurde man herumgeschickt und konnte jeweils den nächsten Künstler suchen.
 es war ein superschöner sonnentag, ich war zeitweise die einzige, die bei diesem wetter im Museum war, und ich gebe zu, ich hab die Künstler einfach der reihe nach angeschaut, ohne mich treppauf/treppab schicken zu lassen. war auch so interessant und ging natürlich deutlich schneller;)
 
so you could find Information of 22 artists, conveniently presented on german/englisch Cards.
(by These Cards you were sent around the room to find the next Artist...)
here i just grab some of my faborites:
 

~~~
zu meinen Favoriten gehören herakut, die es wert sind,
auch im Internet noch weiter zu forschen...
 
Herakut are a duo i really like very much...
worth to look for further info in the net
 
 
die im Museum gezeigten Beispiele:
 
their samples shown in the Museum:
 

and what now?

(2014, Sprühfarbe, Acryl und kohle auf Leinwand; 180 x 140 cm)
 
 
 
it was the booze that turned granny into this hideous beast
 

 
 
 
 
~~~
 
hoher Bekanntheitsgrad bei den nächsten Beispielen, die ich auch sehr mag und die natürlich im streetopoly auf den teuersten plätzen zu finden sind:
 
quite famous the next samples, which i also like very much and they are of course the highest rated ones:
 

~~~ 


 
that´s for today, see you next week:)

  1. Das Spargelrezept klingt genial und die Ausstellung mit den Streetartisten war ja wohl ein Hammer!

  2. Good morning, and Happy Easter to you too-I would have loved your dish with quinoa and shrimp and wow did you make the artist monopoly game love that it is about artists--have an awesome week Kathy

  3. Happy belated Easter. I would love to try that shrimp, egg, and quinoa recipe. Asparagus is so wonderful, too. My grandfather used to grow it. He said it took three years before you had any you could harvest.

    The art is unbelievable, and I simply adore the monopoly. That is recycling at its best. SO clever, and glad you shared it.

    I also enjoyed the Herakut entries. They are superb almost surreal artists.

    And who doesn't like Banksy? I never knew his name was Nick Walker, though. I really enjoyed these artists.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful art, the egg recipe, and your Pils with us for T this week. Guess I'm a bit early, like you!

  4. I love your pretty coloured eggs and I hope you had a wonderful Easter too! The shrimp recipe sounds lovely, I bet it tasted so fresh and delicious :-) . The Streetopoly looks amazing and looks so much fun. Thanks for sharing this game - I really enjoyed reading the information about the street artists and seeing the pictures of the street art - fantastic! Wishing you a Happy T Day! J :-)

  9. Na, das ist ja ein tolles Osterei mit diesen spannenden Bildern der Ausstellung - ich brauche ja jetzt nicht zu sagen, wie gerne ich dort mir dir zusammen gewesen wäre.
    Gut auch, dass du die Künstler-Infos fotografiert hast!
    Liebe Grüße - Ulrike

  10. Yum. Your new asparagus dish looks delicious. And those colorful eggs are so pretty. We didn't make any eggs this year and I wish I had. Plus what a fun museum visit. :) Sounds like it was a good week. Happy T Day. Hugs-Erika

  11. Belated happy Easter to you too! You quinoa dish with asparagus and shrimps looks divine! Three of my favorite things together in one dish. Can't be bad.
    The MUCA exhibition looks great! Thank you so much for sharing it. I had read a little about Streetopoly on Widewalls, but your photos are brilliant. Wouldn't it be great to have that game for real. And if so, would the rules be less capitalistic?... Who knows. I'm sure people would buy it if it was marketed.
    Thanks for sharing your museum visit. You've made my day!
    Hugs,
    Lisca

  14. Absolutely fascinating post, Johanna! I was really taken by Herakut's work and did as you suggested. An hour later - lol - I'm back to thank you for sending me to check them out.

    The Streetopoly game is really clever. I love the spray paint and paint bucket gnme pieces.

    Asparagus is my favorite vegetable and your qiunoa, shrimp and asparagus looks delicious!

    Happy T-Day. Hugs, Eileen

  18. Oh wie lecker! Wir bekommen hier leider nur meist schon ziemlich vertrockneten grünen Spargel aus Griechenland zu kaufen. Die Streetopoly Idee war ja cool und die Ausstellung sicher genial. Die hätte ich mir auch angeschaut.
    Herzliche Grüße

  19. The game looks very interesting and so fun to make the game pieces fit the theme of the game, and a good way to introduce people to these artists.
    I like your coloured eggs, I've never done that, but we have drawn faces on them.
