Le snobisme de l'argent ... Cosima von Bonin, artist and friend of GoSee, invites to a tea dance in Cologne. The occasion: the release party of 'Le snobisme de l'argent' by friend and musician Justus Köhnke on the label QUEEN MUM'S MAIL in Cologne's perhaps hippest club at the moment: our friend Robert's Clubheim Olympia Cologne.
“Two years ago, I suddenly felt like releasing a record after an about 20-year break. Music, which actually needs to be on it, I didn't have at first. I only had a name for my "label": Queen Mum's Mail.” Cosima von Bonin tells GoSee and adds “Viola Klein came to my place for dinner at some point and brought me her latest 12''. I wanted the B side right away and got it too ... but not the A side because that was reserved for Justus – although I didn't know if he had anything or what he had.”
And if you now want to know – what Justus has – and you happen to be in Cologne, then please go see Robert on Sunday at Clubheim Olympia and celebrate with our friends.
A SUNDAY AFTERNOON RELEASE PARTY FOR QUEEN MUM'S MAIL'S SECOND 12", JUSTUS KÖHNCKE'S "LE SNOBISME DE L'ARGENT". WITH JUSTUS KÖHNCKE, MICHAEL KERKMANN + VIOLA KLEIN. CHAPERONED BY COSIMA VON BONIN + MICHAEL HENGSBERG. Sunday – 15 September – 3 pm – Clubheim Olympia Cologne . GoSee : clubheim-olympia.de

About - COSIMA VON BONIN. Cosima von Bonin (born 1962 in Mombasa, Kenya) is a German artist, who lives and works in Cologne. von Bonin is a concept artist and works with textiles, films, installations, and social relationships. Bonin has been married to German artist Michael Krebber since 1992, whom she met via Martin Kippenberger while Krebber was his assistant. Since 2000, Bonin has been in contact with German musician Dirk von Lowtzow, whom she often works with. Occasional interactions between Bonin's work and that of von Lowtzow occur now and them, for instance, when Bonin names one of her exhibitions after a Tocotronic song as in the case of 'Wir sind viele'. von Lowtzow often writes the press texts for von Bonin's exhibitions.
Since around 2009, Bonin has been working with another German musician: Moritz von Oswald. Bonin is responsible for the cover art of his three albums which were released on the label Honest Jon's and uses his music in her exhibitions. Her recent exhibitions “The Fatigue Empire” and “The Lazy Susan Series” can be seen as a praise to exhaustion in a society characterized by pressure to perform. Influences and artists Cosima von Bonin greatly appreciates include: Marcel Broodthaers, André Cadere, Cady Noland, Isa Genzken, Michael Clark, Jacques Tati, and George A. Romero. von Bonin has a tenure at the University of Fine Arts Hamburg, after having had guest professorships there.

Glitter and glamour on stage at an entertaining award ceremony with presenter Steven Gätjen and host Florian Weischer, Chairman of Hamburg-based media company Weischer.Media, followed by an after-show party: Around 300 invited guests witnessed the ceremonial presentation of the “Oscars of Advertising” at Delphi Showpalast in Hamburg. Weischer.Media, the official German representative of the International Festival of Creativity in Cannes for more than 20 years, invited guests once again to the “Night of the Lions” in Hamburg where the German winners were honored and finally received their long-awaited Lion trophies, which they had won in Cannes in June.
A total of only 32 Lions (Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Titanium) were presented to the creatives. Two particularly valuable awards were among the coveted trophies: one Grand Prix and one Titanium Lion. “With the Titanium Lion and Grand Prix, our creatives demonstrate their ability to compete in the highest league of international creatives, even though the German agencies did better in Cannes last year,” Florian Weischer says diplomatically about the modest result.
One thing the evening made clear is that, at the moment, Germany's best advertising campaigns come from Berlin. Hamburg-based agencies, which received more Lions in Germany last year, only took home two lions this year. One Silver Lion went to the agency Publicis Pixelpark for the film '9.58 seconds', in which Puma's annual report was overlaid with the run of sprinter Usain Bolt – Forever faster: Puma. The other, a Bronze Lion in the Design category, went to the agency Mutabor for brand work commissioned by U-Werk Karoline.
The PR Grand Prix went to agency Scholz & Friends Berlin for a book project, indicating clearly that taxes for tampons are higher than for caviar or other luxury products.
The Titanium Lion was awarded to the creatives from DDB Berlin for “The Uncensored Playlist”. This project for Reporters Without Borders transforms texts of critical journalists into pop songs. For the first time ever, a campaign from a German agency was awarded a Titanium Lion. The best German agency with a total of nine Lions is Scholz & Friends.
At “Night of the Lions”, the best German advertising campaigns have been showcased for more than 20 years, and winners have been presented the coveted Cannes Lions. Because of its high standing in the creative industry, the Lions are considered the Oscars of advertising. The Lions are awarded in June of each year by a renowned jury at the International Festival of Creativity in Cannes.
