Art Fair Tours

Art Tours, Etc. goes international!!!!!!
Join us for this unique weekend trip to the most important art exhibition in the world. dOCUMENTA wins out even over the Venice Biennale, as it only takes place every five years rather than every two.
The thirteenth edition of dOCUMENTA involves more than 300 participants. The exhibition in Kassel is presented at eight main venues, with many other projects located at sites throughout the center of the city.
If you haven’t seen dOCUMENTA (13) yet, this is your last opportunity as the event closes on September 16. You will have to wait another five years until the next one. The price of the trip is 550fr per person and  includes:
– Train tickets Zurich-Kassel-Zurich
– Hotel stay for 2 nights with breakfast
– Tickets to documenta and guided tours
– one bagged lunch
– all planning, organizing, reservations, and me as moderator and group guide (exact agenda will be set in the next 2 weeks and emailed to you before departure).  www.arttoursetc.wordpress.com
This Guided Trip to dOCUMENTA (13) is an exciting possibility for us to really engage in serious and insightful discussions about contemporary art, ideas, and culture, but it will also allow us to get to know one another better, and establish connections and relationships in a fun and cool context.
When: September 7-9, 2012

Kunst Zurich – Meet the Gallerists
I decided to do a very special, if last minute, event during next weekend’s Kunst Zurich. I will organize an inside look at the local art scene by inviting several of my acquaintances at participating galleries to talk about the work and art they are displaying and selling, and we will also discuss the business of art and what sells these days. We will also have a drink together at the bar at the fair.  October 10, 2010
