Idar-Oberstein #3

Welcome to Villa Bengel (see previous post).

staircase to wallpaper room

This is actually the staircase to a room which was used for an exhibition during the symposium. The exhibition was called Twilight (check out the image at that link! It's work by Andrea Winkler who I met in Idar-Oberstein. what a coincidence) and was the result of a masterclass between students of EKA in Tallinn and Alchimia in Florence in 2005. Sorry, no photos.

Also no photos of the artist-in-residence studio or apartment but lots of photos of the old factory...

Oh, I would love to see the chain-making machine in action! And a lathe! I have always wanted a good solid lathe....
